Internet of Things (IoT)



Industry analysts at Gartner predict that the number of intelligent devices or end points communicating among themselves will increase to 20.4 billion by 2020. The rise in demand for faster, always connected, cheaper, on-demand, web-scale digital services, anytime, anywhere has driven the need to launch new digital services for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) in order to accelerate revenue opportunities. This network of connected things intelligently talking to each other while creating a web of communication points is referred as the Internet of Things (IoT).

The CSP Imperatives

The digitization of machines, automotive, farms, homes, utilities, industrial units, and even human bodies has opened opportunity for CSPs to concentrate on paid-for endpoints, applications and connected service revenues. Therefore, it is important for CSPs to engage with a partner who:

  • Is an end-to-end orchestrator that can enable them deliver IoT services efficiently across end modules, network, platforms and applications
  • Understands local price points and their business needs to build a strong and reliable ecosystem of devices/ modules/ sensors
  • Is agile to managed hybrid network deployment across technologies
  • Is capable to manage and generate strong analytics leveraging voluminous amount of data generated every minute and providing actionable inputs to monetize

CSP’s already have heavily invested in backend systems/platforms and the need is to integrate between multiple interfaces of CSP platforms with end user interfaces.
