Inevitably in early January thoughts turn to what the new year has in store for the world of IoT. In the next few days we will be publishing both our research agenda and our predictions for 2016. Below are some of the key themes that will dominate both.
An evaluation jointly carried out by Starhome Mach and Machina Research has concluded that mobile network operators need to pay more attention to the impact of M2M roaming on their networks as M2M’s share of roaming doubled in the last 12 months.
Machina Research published just recently a new Strategy Report that explores the technological landscape of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks and their use in the IoT. It is a topic that remains very high on our research agenda, and one of the key themes that we have been studying as part of these efforts is spectrum use.
Machina Research has published a strategy report discussing the market for Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks. These networks will play a decisive role in the enablement of IoT applications, but as a technology market they are characterized by complex and possibly persistent fragmentation.
Machina Research has published a Strategy Report ‘2G and 3G switch off: a navigation guide for IoT’ looking at the emerging trend in mobile operators switching off 2G (and in future 3G) networks and the likely implications for Internet of Things (IoT) developers
During Machina Research’s regular discussions with enterprise end customers implementing Internet of Things (IoT), a frequent problem, and a critical one for many companies, is the uncertainty over how to deploy cellular connectivity for the next 10 years. Specifically the challenge is that for deployments that expect to be around during the early 2020s it is unclear which generations of [...]
Last week saw one of 2015’s most far-reaching developments in M2M connectivity, as the 3rd Generation Partnership Project’s (3GPP) plenary meeting in Phoenix, Arizona reached a decision on the standardisation of a new NarrowBand IoT (NB-IOT) technology.
At its annual PTC Live event in Boston in May, the company announced the acquisition of data analytics firm ColdLight. This USD110 million purchase comes on top of two other very prominent deals in the last eighteen months in the IoT field, specifically the acquisition of ThingWorx (USD112 million) and Axeda (USD170 million).
There is a lot of discussion around the Internet of Things relating to the lack of standards and managing Big Data, but very little about what is actually at the heart of the IoT: connectivity.
Every year Machina Research takes a snapshot from its M2M Forecast Database to look at the current state of the M2M market and expectations for how the market will grow over the next 10 years.
