Cambridge, UK – Beecham Research has appointed Jon Howes as Technology Director. The move is designed to expand the firm’s technical insights to complement their market research and analysis of the M2M and Internet of Things industry.
Before joining Beecham Research in 2011, Howes led his own NEuW Ltd consultancy team since 1993 building products and services based on new semiconductor and other advanced technologies for clients around the world, in sectors as wide-ranging as automotive, smart grid and healthcare. Prior to that he led R&D and marketing activities with Fujitsu and Ferranti, helping to launch many types of product including some of the first GSM solutions.
According to Beecham Research, Howes combines a strong technical background, particularly in wireless, semiconductor technologies and system software with deep market knowledge of machine-to-machine (M2M)-related sectors. He is an expert in M2M solution security.
“We’re delighted to be expanding our capabilities by leveraging Jon’s technical expertise,” said Beecham Research founder and CEO, Robin Duke-Woolley. “As we examine marketplace issues ever more closely on behalf of our clients, we see an increasing need for deep technical insights to support our market analysis and strategy development work. Jon has been a tremendous asset as we consult with technology companies about how to build their businesses in the M2M/Internet of Things space.”
Howes recently published a white paper on security in M2M as a prelude to an upcoming report: Towards Right-Sizing Security for M2M Solutions. The white paper is free and available for download at www.beechamresearch.com
