The development trend of intelligent gateway in the future
At present, the number of intelligent gateways is increasing by tens of millions or even hundreds of millions every year, and many problems are encountered with rapid development. Smart gateways generally suffer from security, wall penetration, middleware compatibility, and stability issues.
1. Security: The account is stolen, the smart gateway has security loopholes, and the network is hacked.
2. Through the wall: Wi-Fi cannot be fully covered in the use space.
3. Middleware compatibility: The intelligent gateway has developed into an important control unit, which requires compatibility with various terminal devices.
4. Stability: Once the smart terminal is started, it is generally not powered off. If there is a sudden large amount of traffic, whether the stability of the network can be guaranteed will inevitably affect the customer experience.
With the rapid development of smart homes, more and more terminal electronic products will be connected to the network. The smart gateway is a unified convergence node for broadband traffic, which can sense, distinguish and control different business flows, and become a management platform for intensive services. It is the connection and control center of smart home devices and security sensors. The future development of intelligent gateways is showing the following three trends.
An important part of the IEC committee’s development of the international standard market promotion plan is to promote the use of IEC standards in various member states and increase the standard utilization rate. Externally, citing international standards can improve our awareness of the trend of international standardization, and is conducive to promoting independent standards that meet the needs of the international market to go abroad. Internally, standardization can enhance device interconnectivity, improve compatibility between different device nodes, and reduce network optimization costs.
2. Hardware optimization
The cross-application of technologies promotes the diversification of broadband development and the multi-functional integration of intelligent gateways. In order to improve device functions and performance, low-performance devices with different functional chips pieced together will not be able to meet business and service needs and will be quickly eliminated by the market. The multi-functional intelligent gateway chip will optimize and integrate different functions.
3. Functional integration
The intelligent gateway will further integrate the Internet of Things technologies such as automation control systems, computer network systems, and network communication technology, continuously integrate various home intelligent terminals and realize the integration and intelligence of various home intelligent terminals. The future home Internet of Things can involve intelligent lighting, home appliance control, environmental monitoring, audio-visual entertainment, health management, etc., and can maximize the connection and interaction of people, homes, and things.
Under the support and promotion of national policies, the smart gateway simplifies the design of network nodes by integrating various services and interfaces, externally access the Internet of Things through the cloud, and internally uses the smart home gateway to create an ecosystem with radio and television network characteristics, providing users with Multi-terminal, multi-access, and multi-platform integrated solutions will be the future development trend.
