M2M and IoT: What does it mean for the Mobile Network Operator?

New report forecasts to 2019 with analysis of key drivers, success factors, and industry dynamics

When Irish billionaire Denis O'Brien set about building a cellphone company in the western hemisphere's poorest country, there was no shortage of skeptics.

Six years later O'Brien's company Digicel is the largest private investor in Haiti and has 4.8 million users, about half the population. It is a rare beacon of entrepreneurship in a country still struggling to rebuild after the 2010 earthquake.

M2M enterprise: the importance of APIs

Layer 7 Technologies

This year has marked the start of the mobile and big-data age in enterprise IT. A related but distinct trend has also been the emergence of “machine-to-machine” (M2M) communication, which depends on wireless technology and real-time analytics. M2M is revolutionizing technology across a range of industries, from smart meters in energy and utilities (the “smart grid”) to connected vehicles in automotive and logistics, heart monitors in healthcare, RFID‐tagged inventory in retail and manufacturing, and digital signage in media and communications.

Carrier Ethernet services drive new assurance requirements to compete effectively

For enterprise and mobile backhaul customers, basic SLAs are not enough

Centina Systems

When it comes to business connectivity, Ethernet's central driver continues to be its ability to meet growing bandwidth demands at lower cost and with greater flexibility than competing legacy services. Applications vary from wireless backhaul and basic Internet connections to delivering enterprise applications and providing access to cloud infrastructure. That translates into a big revenue opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs) – if they can provide the right level of customer satisfaction.

Driving higher margins with premium technology support

Two forces today are reshaping the telecoms landscape: the proliferation of connected devices and the elevated expectations of consumers for richer customer experiences. In order to remain competitive and overcome the challenges these forces have created, organizations need to adopt a technology services business model that supports the increasing demands from consumers, improves customer experience and retention and continues to drive bottom-line growth for businesses.

Providing control, security key to unlocking the cloud opportunity

By 2016, 40% of enterprises will require prospective cloud providers to submit proof of independent security testing before they’ll sign up for service, Gartner predicts.

The 2012 Olympic communication challenges ahead

This summer's Olympic Games in London will be the climax of several years of planning by various organizing committees, including LOCOG - the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games - the UK government-appointed organization tasked with preparing and staging the London 2012 Games.

Deploying satellite technology with SCADA and M2M services

To effectively protect, manage, and leverage infrastructure investments, companies are using M2M and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology to keep complex systems running at peak efficiency. While cellular-based transmission may work in high population areas, it can be unpredictable due to congestion and urban canyons. It may even be non-existent in remote locations.  According to the International Telecommunication Union, 90% of the world is covered by a mobile cellular network, but what happens when you are working in that other 10%?

Optimizing a service provider network

Broadband access and broadband services will be the main driver of revenue growth for mobile service providers over the next five years. However, there is currently a significant strain being placed on wireless networks. With smartphone and tablet adoption on the rise and user demand for mobile video continuing to explode, service providers are increasingly challenged to manage expanding networks.

M2M Fuels the Subscription-Economy Revolution

Some of the largest vendors and OEMs on the planet were in agreement at the Axeda Conference in Boston this week – embedded devices will allow manufacturers to monitor their goods after sale, and in doing so, present a wide range of revenue opportunities that are just starting to become reality. New, M2M-driven revenue sources will resemble subscription sales more than the traditional movement of hard goods, and handling “Big Data” will be the key to making that happen.
