As deployment volumes for IoT devices scale up and services enter the mainstream, organizations are challenged to construct solid business cases for their propositions because of variables in connectivity pricing. What’s needed is a simple, clear proposition that provides them with a flat rate fee, per device for the lifecycle of a service.
Eseye, a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) services, is partnering with African mobile network operator (MNO) MTN. MTN has joined forces with Eseye and the AnyNet Federation, a new association of MNOs established to meet the complex management and enhanced resilience requirements of the rapidly expanding global M2M IoT customer base.
The IoT is a deceptively simple concept – collect data from remote devices in the field, process it centrally as part of an application, then distribute to whoever needs the data, potentially in real time. In practice, though, it is not so simple because there are an almost unlimited number of different IoT applications in the market, with many new and ingenious ones being devised all the [...]
Smart City IoT projects are becoming fundamental for city development. The EIP-SCC (European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities), for example, is spending up to €1bn to develop 300 smart cities in Europe by the end of 2019. The opportunity is evident for IoT solution vendors – Smart City is now the #1 implementation area for IoT projects.
With global volumes of IoT connected devices set to rise from 7.5 billion in 2017 to 22 billion in 2025, according to GSMA Intelligence, it’s clear huge numbers of IoT devices need to get connected in the coming years. It’s equally clear that traditional connectivity deployment will be too slow, too expensive and too inflexible for many IoT applications.
When talking about future-proof technologies or solutions we always face a dilemma – we can’t know what the future looks like. We can make educated guesses and we can have well-argued opinions, but at the end of the day we simply don’t know. This doesn’t mean, however, that we shouldn’t prepare for different scenarios and choose technologies that are as future-proof as possible.
[Sponsored] In the short time since their offer made its disruptive entrance to market, 1NCE have redefined everything enterprises previously understood about IoT connectivity.
It’s easy to take connectivity’s role in the IoT value chain for granted. The baseline function is the wide area transportation of data from devices to the cloud, without which solutions wouldn’t work. Communication services are normally differentiated by their cost and geographic availability, but today’s economic order isn’t normal. It’s disruptive and driven by innovative concepts that [...]
