Another year has passed analysing CSPs across the globe as they evolve their strategies in IoT and look to capitalise on the fast growing opportunity. This year, we have talked about the consistent leadership in the industry and key themes of bifurcating strategies and solution based selling.
The connected object market today shows a real complementarity between the OTT and Telco players in terms of their current positionings, aligned with their core business. In the longer term, however, IDATE anticipates a fiercer competition, around the platforms and services which are set to be the next source of revenue.
The IoT market is becoming ever more complex, throwing up new opportunities on an annual basis and the occasional dead-end.

IoT Evolution Conference and Expo, held July 11-14, 2016 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, concluded its 16th iteration of the show with a robust four days of best in class programming, case studies, awards, live demos, keynotes, exhibits and networking events.
A select group of Communications Services Providers (CSPs) and value added resellers (VARs) are positioning themselves to more aggressively target the global IoT opportunity rather than limit themselves to their ‘home’ markets.

The fog is one of those IoT topics that we are covering on an [...]
In the last few weeks, the author found himself several times talking with people about the “Internet of Things Market”. The fact is that there really is no such thing. IoT is a way of thinking about the use of remote monitoring and management of devices to achieve a particular goal.

Last week saw one of the year 2015’s most far-reaching developments in M2M connectivity, as 3GPP’s plenary meeting in Phoenix, Arizona reached a decision on the standardization of a new “NarrowBand IoT” (NB-IOT) technology. It means that there is now a common standard for rolling out and operating cellular-based Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks, to be included already in 3GPP Release [...]
