Cloud vendors jostling for share of IoT analytics

Article | March 1, 2020

ABI Research says cloud vendors are investing in the data and analytics services space as they attempt to get on board the IoT value chain. The researcher forecasts that cloud suppliers will grow their share of IoT data and analytics management revenues from US$6 billion in 2019 to US$56 billion in 2026. Cloud vendor’s revenues come primarily from streaming, storage, and the orchestration of data. Analytics services across cloud vendors, on the other hand, are less differentiated, as reflected in pre-built templates such as AWS Sagemaker and Microsoft Azure Notebooks which leverage the open source Jupyter project. Considering that many cloud vendors are in the early stages of analytics investment, cloud vendors are relying on their partners for addressing more specific advanced analytics and vertical market needs.

Nokia adds 5G to worldwide IoT network, lets carriers test new sensors

Article | March 17, 2020

Nokia may be best known for cellular phones, but in recent years the Finnish company has focused on networking hardware — the radios and infrastructure that connect cellular devices to the internet. Today, Nokia announced that it’s augmenting its Worldwide Internet of Things Network Grid (WING) with new 5G capabilities, enabling cellular carriers to offer global-scale 5G IoT services to customers without building out their own networks. While that’s a lot of jargon to absorb at once, the gist is that carriers like AT&T and Verizon want to offer business customers the ability to connect small IoT sensors to the internet but don’t necessarily want to spend the money to build the cellular infrastructure the sensors need to communicate. So Nokia offers WING as a global IoT infrastructure, partnering with carriers to sell access on a pay-as-you-go basis.

The role of BSS in the journey to 5G monetization

Article | March 24, 2020

The rollout of commercial 5G services is well underway. This evolution is unlocking exciting new opportunities, but it also presents new challenges. To capture new 5G revenue streams, service providers must transform their existing business support systems (BSS), and develop clear roadmaps to guide this transformation. In the latest MIT Insights report, telecom executives share their vision for 5G-enabled BSS, and how they are preparing for it. Here, we explore some of the highlights. The benefits of 5G are well-documented. Low-latency connectivity and superior broadband speeds will open doors to fully automated factories and put driverless vehicles on our roads. Service providers will be able to provide cutting-edge solutions and superior consumer experiences. However, monetizing a 5G-fuelled IoT society requires a clear strategic roadmap – particularly when it comes to BSS. As 5G matures, BSS will play an increasingly important role in establishing the service provider’s position in the value chain – and having a clear BSS evolution plan is crucial.
