Vending Machines

"VM, phone home" The original IOT use case, Vending Machines offer choices and self service to consumers. By adding connectivity back to the vendor, they become smarter, informing about inventory levels, tampering, environmental problems, and delivering voice or display data to the point of sale, providing enhanced value to the vendor and consumer alike.

A Connected IO modem can enable this connectivity, sending data in both directions over a cellular network. A Connected IO router can aggregate the ethernet or Wi-Fi data from multiple vending machines, servicing an area such as a stadium section, hotel floor, food court, and many other similar places.
