eUICC (Embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card) has been dubbed the next evolution of the SIM card, because it offers users the ability to change service provider over-the-air (OTA), without needing to physically change the embedded SIM card itself. eUICC represents the most radical change in over two decades of GSM connectivity, in terms of how customers can select and change service [...]
‘Transformation’ is one of those awkward words that often gets carelessly thrown around. Everyone knows what it loosely means, but when it comes to putting it into real-world practice – especially in the worlds of business and industry – the devil truly is in the detail…
Ensuring a sustainable quality of life in cities is both a great challenge and a great opportunity. Worldwide, every day, about one million people move to live in cities and, by 2050, an estimated 70% of the global population will live in an urban environment.
Ericsson is intrinsically linked to the history of telecommunications. Since Lars Magnus Ericsson established the company in 1876, each step of both the evolution of the telecommunications market and the technological history of telecommunications have been defined by the presence of Ericsson.
Since its formation in 2012, Tele2’s IoT division has taken a different approach to other telecoms operators with global ambitions in IoT.

While the role of the IoT in business transformation is a popular topic – see this issue’s special supplement – most of the focus is on transforming the customer, not on the changes that IoT vendors and service providers must themselves go through. In the face of unrelenting technology change and a growing demand across an almost infinite range of market sectors, how should IoT product and [...]
A new report just published by Beecham Research: ‘An Introduction to LPWA Public Service Categories: Matching Services to IoT Applications’, proposes creating service categories for different types of providers of LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) public services. The aim is to make it possible for enterprise users to match the applications that they want to the most appropriate connectivity [...]
Awareness of the transformational power of the IoT vision is spreading among the traditional M2M community, with new players entering the IoT space, organisations of all types adopting or planning to adopt an IoT strategy, and policy-makers and regulators increasingly recognising its potential social and economic impact. This momentum doesn’t just involve innovation in technological terms, [...]
There’s no doubt that debate about the IoT and its direction has risen from being a specialist subject to near the top of the boardroom agenda for many companies in just a few years. Amongst all the white noise, death-by-powerpoint presentations and sometimes desperate posturing by peripheral vendors to generate IoT-relevant marketing, it’s sometimes difficult to see the actual reality [...]
