EXPANDING THE ROLE OF THE MOBILE NETWORK OPERATOR IN M2M

March 1, 2016

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications is on the rise. Most mobile network operators (MNOs) are turning to M2M for growth in revenues buoyed by the significant growth projections for number of connected devices. With voice revenue reaching saturation and significant margin pressure on consumer data services, MNOs are attracted by the high margins involved in M2M connections.
Estimates for number of M2M devices in the future are in the billions of devices.
An oft quoted figure is from Ericsson: 50 Billion connections by 2020 [1], which is roughly ten times the number of cellular connections today. MNOs are investing a significant amount of resources in infrastructure platforms, partnerships, and marketing and sales to grow their M2M business.

Global Industry Standards for Industrial IoT

whitePaper | June 2, 2021

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a rapidly expanding world of connected objects. As IIoT systems proliferate, large amounts of data are consumed by machine learning algorithms and shared between partners, customers and others. IIoT is a technology environment in which integration and interoperability are critical capabilities and the complexity of this environment makes this difficult to achieve. Standards play a critical role in IIoT for five main reasons. First, users and vendors cannot engineer a custom interface every time components or systems need to interact. Standards can make this explosion of interfaces manageable; they are the lingua franca for interoperability. For suppliers, this eliminates needless costs related to common capabilities instead encouraging a focus on innovations that add value.
