Creating the New Mobile Network of IOT

McKinsey estimates that the Internet of Things (IoT) will have a total potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025 and will have a huge effect on the way businesses function in any sector. Today’s mobile networks have not been designed to provide mobile connectivity for the Internet of Things. This paper examines the IoT driven demand for constant, consistent connectivity and describes how mobile networks need to empower enterprises by transforming themselves in terms of globalisation, self-management and flexibility, giving them end-to-end control over their IoT networks.

2G, 3G, 4G… Omg! What G Is Right for IOT / M2m?

There are multiple technology options for IoT / M2M. How do you know which one is right for your application? Find the best options for your IoT / M2M solution in this whitepaper. We discuss the pros and cons of 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, as well as the differences between traditional and varied IoT / M2M applications.

10 Signs That You’re Paying Too Much for Cellular IOT / M2m Service

An outlines the most common ways that cellular operators increase the cost for your IoT / M2M program each year and how you can avoid them.

Wireless IP for M2m / IOT 101

Since the introduction of wireless IP for M2M / IoT networks in 1995, communication and data transmission between and among machines is faster than ever before. More, it requires less power. This revelation has not only increased the speed of business, but also enabled the introduction of many new products and applications for M2M / IoT communication.

State of the Market – the Internet of Things 2015 (Discover How Iot Is Transforming Business Results)

Organizations are seeing measurable benefits from Internet of Things (IoT) projects. Transportation companies are saving millions of dollars by reducing fuel consumption using data captured, transmitted, and analyzed in near real-time. Local governments are making budgets go further with LED smart street lighting that doesn’t need regular maintenance, but can automatically report when it needs to be repaired. Utility companies are eliminating costly and inconvenient home visits to read meters by introducing smart meters that report more granular usage data without human intervention. These are just a few examples of the myriad ways in which IoT is making new products, business models, and processes possible.

Retail Applications and Wireless M2m

The retail industry is an important vertical for cellular M2M connectivity. Berg Insight forecasts that the number of cellular M2M connections in the retail industry will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6 percent to reach 33.3 million connections worldwide in 2018.

The Global Wireless M2M Market

The global wireless M2M market remained strong in 2012, displaying growth in all major world regions and vertical segments. Berg Insight estimates that shipments of cellular M2M devices increased by 15.2 percent to a new record level of 54.9 million units. Adjusted for churn, this resulted in net additions of 27.5 million M2M connections in 2012, taking the worldwide number of cellular M2M subscribers to an estimated 134.9 million.

Towards Smart Cities and the Role of Machine to Machine Technologies

In this paper, we explore the link between Machine to Machine (M2M) systems and technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities. Whilst M2M deployments have been around for over 20 years and have proved their worth, Smart Cities as such have yet to be created.
