China holds a narrow lead in overall 5G readiness ahead of South Korea and the United States, according to a new report from Analysys Mason. Underscoring the importance of America maintaining its global wireless leadership, additional research by Recon Analytics found that U.S.
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the billions of ‘smart’ devices – anything from cars, to home appliances – that can connect to a network to collect and share data. In a time when Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution (4IR), is thriving, it’s no wonder we are finding ourselves more and more immersed in the possibilities of IoT.
Analysys Mason’s research director Tom Rebbeck caught up with Arkessa chief executive, Andrew Orrock, to talk about how the barriers to IoT adoption are gradually falling, and how mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) can succeed in a market with numerous large global mobile network operators (MNOs)
Mobile operators have a significant opportunity to offer LPWA solutions, but competition will be intense. The leaders have decided which technology to support – for example, AT&T has opted for LTE-M, Orange uses LoRa and LTE-M and Vodafone has gone for NB-IoT.
While autonomous vehicles are gaining huge attention from all sectors, there is little assessment of what they mean for the telecoms sector. Based on a series of discussions with players in different roles in the value chain, and our own analysis, Analysys Mason believes that,
We forecast that 6.4 billion IoT connections worldwide will use fixed, mobile and low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks by 2025. As the IoT market grows, so does the security risk. The discussions on how to secure the IoT are increasingly the focus of attention.
As organisations begin to roll-out low power radio (LoRa) and low power wide area (LPWA) connectivity, Michele Mackenzie, a principal analyst at Analysys Mason, interviews Sara Brown, the senior director of marketing at MultiTech, to learn more about how the technologies are being applied to smart city deployments.
