Internet of Things

Internet-of-Things (IoT) communications or sometimes referred in the same breath with machine to machine (M2M) is the next huge development in the evolution of how the Internet is applied to the world. IoT promises to deliver benefits in multiple areas: increasing energy efficiency, improving operational efficiency, reducing supply chain friction, enabling real-time delivery of marketing messages and actionable analytics. While there is little disagreement that IoT will transform the industry, it is early in the life cycle and SPs and vendors are struggling to understand customer use cases, optimal technology approaches and profitable business models.

Although IoT/M2M is not technically a new segment, (examples of early IoT include SCADA, industrial automation, and telecom network management), interest is surging because the confluence of cost, form factor, and pervasive connectivity is enabling new applications (wearables) that were not possible just a few years ago.

ACG’s IoT Research Service delivers actionable intelligence and insights to help decision makers make sense of the market and help them navigate toward winning product strategies and business models.
