The IIoT is predicated on a simple concept: acquire device data and leverage its value. That is the basic business model. Vendors package the various hardware, software and service components into bottom up solutions that go from networked devices through to enterprise environments.
The GSMA has announced that mobile network operators are set to benefit from an estimated US$1.8 trillion (€1.50 trillion) Internet of Things (IoT) revenue opportunity by 2026 boosted by the early deployment of commercial Low Power Wide Area Networks in licensed spectrum,
u‑blox, a provider in wireless and positioning modules and chips, and Atoll Solutions Pvt, an IoT gateway platform, sensor node and wireless module provider, announce the availability of an IoT starter kit based on LTE Cat M1 and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) modules from u‑blox.
Tom Rebbeck, the research director for the Enterprise and IoT research practice at Analysys Mason, spoke to Erik Brenneis, the chief executive of Vodafone Global Enterprise, about Vodafone’s NB-IoT networks, developer tools and smart city projects.
As always, the telecoms industry is looking forward to the next generation of technology. We are already seeing the first-mover companies starting to build IoT solutions for the LTE and NB-IoT networks, says Colin Newman CEO of Antenova Ltd.
It’s official: the potential of the IoT can no longer be ignored. There are 520 million global cellular IoT connections today, and this number is predicted to grow to 2.4 billion by 2025, according to Strategy Analytics.
Some of the buzzwords gaining steam in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT (IIoT) world are “fog computing” or “edge computing.” My preference, says R. Scott Raynovich, founder and chief analyst of Futuriom, is for the term edge computing, because it accurately describes the IoT market,
Smart devices have arguably made consumers’ lives easier, and as they become more affordable, more of us are investing in the IoT. However, all too often, these smart devices are being manufactured with affordability in mind and security as an afterthought.
Growth in the Internet of Things (IoT), will accelerate in 2017 with the commercialisation of narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), as is clearly shown by increasing launches, investments and partnerships, say industry analysts Frost & Sullivan.
