Machine-to-Machine (M2M) is becoming an increasingly important feature in the telecoms and IT landscape. This White Paper draws on Machina Research’s extensive knowledge of the M2M space to provide a guide to how we see the M2M market evolving in 2013 and beyond. At its most basic level M2M relates to connecting remote sensing, monitoring and actuating devices. However, it is about much more than that. Specifically it concerns enabling new business models and processes through the application of connectivity.

Smallsat IoT to Become a $1 Billion Annual Market

NSR | September 03, 2021

NSR’s M2M and IoT via Satellite, 12th Edition (M2M12) report, published today, forecasts the dedicated IoT constellations market reaching $990 million in annual total retail revenues by 2030, reflecting ~44 % of the total satcom IoT market. Due to the low cost of Smallsat IoT terminals and ongoing subscription fees to end users, a conservative scenario sees Smallsat IoT representing 71% of global in-service units (~13 million) by 2030, with much higher market share if the stars align properly. “As with the Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) market, key smallsat applications are agriculture and transport & cargo,” notes Alan Crisp, consultant for NSR and report lead author. Unlike mobility markets, COVID-19 had limited impact on M2M/IoT revenues. Cargo’s essential nature made it resilient and the largest market for smallsats, with basic “dots on a map” type applications growing a substantially larger addressable market. And with the potential for regulated tagging of all animals, agriculture has real green field market potential; especially with lower price points unlocking new addressable markets. “In the coming years Smallsat IoT products will compete head on with the Garmin InReach lineup, Globalstar SPOT, and other satcom based devices. Smallsat IoT prices will be lower than existing price points, increasing the addressable market by an order of magnitude,” notes Crisp. “Features, such as panic alarms, can be built into devices at the time of manufacturing to reach a greater consumer base. Other application types will use similar strategies, to deliver similar success.” The coming years represent an inflection point for the satcom IoT industry, resulting in permanent changes to MSS and VSAT operators. But along with change comes opportunity, and the M2M/IoT markets are seeing opportunity, but strategies will need to be revisited, and change is inevitable for long term success. About the Report NSR’s M2M and IoT via Satellite, 12th Edition (M2M12) the industry’s leading resource for assessing the lucrative M2M/IoT market. M2M12 cuts through the hype of small satellite constellations and provides level-headed actionable insights into the future growth of this new market, providing the reader with the best opportunities for growth, and the impact on existing operators and service providers. The report provides deep insight into this fast-evolving market, keeping readers abreast of recent market movements and deals. It also enables service providers and satellite operators to navigate the M2M and IoT maze to protect and expand their market position in both existing and new segments that offer long-term revenue potential. About NSR NSR is the leading global market research and consulting firm focused on the satellite and space sectors, NSR’s global team, unparalleled coverage and anticipation of trends with a high degree of confidence and precision than the competition is the cornerstone of all NSR offerings.

Vodafone's IoT Connected Heat Detection Camera May Help Safely Reopen Businesses after COVID-19

Vodafone | May 06, 2020

Vodafone’s latest solution, the Heat Detection Camera, could go some way to easing the tension. A Heat Detection Camera uses IoT connectivity to provide alerts when a person’s temperature is suspiciously high. Vodafone’s partner Digital Barriers, the cameras can deliver real-time body temperature readings within 0.3 degrees Celsius and require very little in the way of set up or software. After so many months in lockdown, with no clear idea of when it will end, the idea of returning to work in an office is becoming increasingly alien. But whether you are enjoying your time working from home or are dying to see your colleagues again, one thing is certain: the transition from remote working to office working will be a tentative one. Vodafone’s latest solution, the Heat Detection Camera, could go some way to easing the tension. Connected to the IoT, the thermal camera can screen entrants to the office building, at a rate of 100 people per minute, displaying a “discreet alert” in cases where the person’s temperature is dangerously high, potentially indicating infection. However, Vodafone is quick to point out that this temperature reading is far from a diagnosis in itself and further investigative measures, following medical guidelines, would be necessary before any course of action is taken. Read More: Pluribus Networks Announces Availability of IoT Video Security Fabric Created by Vodafone’s partner Digital Barriers, the cameras can deliver real-time body temperature readings within 0.3 degrees Celsius and require very little in the way of set up or software. Our IoT network can connect many cameras quickly and without disruption in almost any location; and our ongoing partnership with Digital Barriers provides reassurance that the underlying software and hardware is engineered to the highest standards, Vodafone���s CTO Scott Petty. As always when cameras are involved, there is a discussion to be had around privacy – ultimately, this is a form of intrusive surveillance after all, with the UK already being one of the surveillance capitals of the world. But beyond the ethical considerations, this development represents an interesting example of how technology will be at the heart of the return to normality, just as it was at the core of the shift to remote working some months ago. Especially with 5G coverage growing steadily in the UK, the slow and steady return to work could be a perfect platform for an explosion of IoT office solutions, health-related or otherwise.

Eurotech and WaterView join forces to confront climate change effects through Edge AI Solutions

Eurotech | December 20, 2021

Eurotech, a trusted and leading enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT) in mission-critical applications, and WaterView, a company specialized in computer vision and AI for meteorology, hydrology, and environmental modeling, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a strategic partnership to enable real-time weather condition monitoring applications. Eurotech's hardware and software enable a simple and fast deployment of WaterView's AI at the Edge. The integrated solution transforms existing surveillance cameras into remotely managed intelligent sensors without the need to change the existing infrastructure, to detect early signs of the increasingly recurring extreme weather events and quantify natural disasters. We are thrilled to partner up with a company like WaterView, with a strong vision towards a more sustainable future enabled by AI technologies: a perfect match with our DNA of enabling Edge AI in mission-critical applications.We are excited to share our international footprint and customer reach, our long-term know-how and premium technology to scale up this solution to a wide range of use cases, with a common go-to-market and a 'one stop' integrated solution for our customers." Paul Chawla, Eurotech CEO Both companies have a solid track record in offering their solutions to customers managing large infrastructures, like road and railway networks, electricity transmission grids and communication towers. From NextGenerationEU to the US Infrastructure Deal, the post-pandemic economy will be driven by unprecedented investments in infrastructure renovation, digital transformation and green transition, with an underlying focus on climate change resilience. By joining their forces, Eurotech and WaterView are already demonstrating the potential of cameras as sentinels for the environment, to monitor weather and its effects. The first joint pilot projects are ongoing and opportunities have been identified in the markets of: smart infrastructures by leveraging cameras on highways and railways - on average 1 device every 3 to 5 km, over 100 thousand estimated cameras on Europe and USA; onboard trains and truck fleets, where cameras are already installed for other applications; and on tower sites – over 426 thousand telco towers in Europe and over 1 million including USA. Accidents can be avoided by analyzing the level of rain and snow on roads and rail tracks, flood damages can be safely evaluated by measuring the water level at a distance and wildfires can be prevented by detecting smoke at early stages.
