Gigaom Research Report: Enabling IoT

March 1, 2016

While the internet of things (IoT) is creating quite a buzz in the media and despite the fact that it is built on solid foundations such as machine to machine (M2M) communications, these remain early days for the technology. With architecture standards and communications protocols still in their infancy, today’s use cases tend to be custom-designed, using a combination of embedded sensors, gateway devices, networking communications, and backend services.

The Digitization of the World From Edge to Core

whitePaper | November 27, 2018

This process of digitization is often referred to as digital transformation, and it is profoundly changing the shape of business today, impacting companies in every industry and consumers around the world. Digital transformation is not about the evolution of devices (though they will evolve), it is about the integration of intelligent data into everything that we do. The data-driven world will be always on, always tracking, always monitoring, always listening, and always watching – because it will be always learning. What we perceive to be randomness will be bounded into patterns of normality by sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms that will deliver the future in new and personalized ways. Artificial intelligence will drive even more automation into businesses and feed processes and engagements that will deliver new levels of e ciency and products that are tailored to business outcomes and individual customer preferences.

Audio as the new UX: Why Bluetooth Audio Matters in the IoT

whitePaper |

In a growing number of IoT applications, Bluetooth wireless connectivity is the basis for a variety of audio-driven capabilities, including voice recognition, two-way voice communication, and music streaming. This paper explains how Bluetooth audio can differentiate IoT devices, and summarizes the design considerations for today’s Bluetooth-enabled audio features. When Bluetooth wireless connectivity first arrived on the scene, more than 20 years ago, it quickly gained a reputation for being a poor choice for audio early versions of the technology struggled to deliver high-quality music and voice reproduction. Never mind the fact that Bluetooth became a household name due to its use in audio applications such as handsfree headsets and portable speakers.

NB-IoT vs LoRa Technology Which could take gold?

whitePaper |

There are many factors to consider for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, including node cost, network cost, battery lifetime, data rate (throughput), latency, mobility, range, coverage, and deployment model. No single technology will be able to solve all factors simultaneously. NB-IoT and LoRa® technology each have different technical and commercial qualifications that will serve different applications just as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (BTLE) do.

The Role of Voice in IoT Applications

whitePaper |

The Internet of Things will be the defining technology trend of the next decade and will impact virtually every vertical industry and permeate the vast majority of business processes. IoT is an integral component of a broader digital transformation. The primary objectives of IoT are: to strengthen customer engagements, in order to increase customer loyalty and accelerate market penetration, and to streamline operational efficiency to improve organizational effectiveness and profitability. The growth in IoT platforms (PaaS), coupled with the declining costs of connectivity and hardware has fostered an environment where numerous sectors can now connect their assets to realize the benefits of IoT. As Strategy Analytics’ primary research shows (Figure 1), drivers are primarily focused on those transformative digital elements such as driving new value-added services, becoming more customer-centric, offering competitive differentiation and better understanding their own environments and processes through Analytics.
