However, it seems that Sony has quietly developed an IoT chip that has a range of 60 miles. According to Sony, “Most IoT systems wirelessly transfer information obtained by various sensors to cloud servers, where the data is collected and processed, and the output then sent to user devices such as smartphones or tablets for display.”

This means that instead of relying on WiFi that might have a limited range or using a cellular connection, the range of 60 miles would allow IoT devices to communicate with each other and the network faster and over a greater range. According to Sony, they cite examples of its use, such as tracking your friends on a ski hill, tracking wildlife, locate ships, monitor races, and so on.
