Synopsis

In 2019 the interest in the “Internet of Things” (IoT) and M2M is going to continue to gather pace with a number of related developments also continuing to demonstrate progress. The underlying infrastructures of 4G LTE and emerging 5G technology along with the many, many countries deploying fibre-based broadband will see the emergence of new applications - wand many of these will be based on sensors and M2M technologies. There are a number of technologies underpinning current IoT developments such as Wide Area Networks (WAN) and Low Power Wide Area (LPWA). These developments are also converging to form the various smart cities which are emerging around the world. For information on smart cities, see report: Global Smart Cities - Towards 2019 - Analysis and Statistics.

This BuddeComm Intelligence Report provides insights into the developments referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the role of the Telcos and potential opportunities. It includes an overview of the global IoT and M2M market and provides statistics related to IoT spending. It also includes insights into the RFID market, which has a promising future in Machine-to-Machine transmission applications and is already in widespread use around the world.

Latest developments:

  • Shipments of mobile IoT devices are increasing at a rapid rate.
  • Asia represents the largest region in terms of IoT spending.
  • The 3GPP standards for LTE - Cat 1, Cat M, and NB-IoT - will contribute substantially to M2M growth over the next few years.
