Cellular IOT
They said the cellular IOT/Internet of Things had 400 million in 2015 and they will reach 3 billion by 2020. I'm so sure they will and it will probably be more than that with their estimations.

Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
Smart utilites and smart cities can actually help conserve the environment, and it's great that those are the top sectors for telco IoT business.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
I agree, I am all about saving money and if I can do that by my citing doing that, I'm all for it. It is also great that there is less environmental impact.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@afwriter When the smart city technology is implemented in every state and every town, there will so much more of an efficient system as far as garbage, parking, security, etc ... It can't happen soon enough.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@srufolo1 - I think this makes great sense and is an excellent market for MB-IoT.  Not only can cities solve the public problems but possibly can also serve as "hosts' to new aggregated information/services that will foster further public/private partnerships.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@DHagar:

You made a great point , as you always do.

Potential partnerships through this initiatives is really welcoming. As you said, initially these initiatives will focus on addressing public problems as that would be the priority. But in long term, there ceratinly will be great opportunities of partnerships and further growth.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@ms.akkineni - exactly!  And leadership is required because it does not naturally line up with the siloed and/or operational tactical structures that exist today.  Leadership has to put them in a new context in order to open up space for larger collaboration, which in turn increases the overall capability.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@DHagar:

Very valid point that leadership doesn't lineup automatically. When leaders (be it individuals or companies) intervene, that's when great perspective gets added to the intiative thus yielding into capabilities.

Can't agree more !

And i truely believe that true transformation is much needed when we have so many promising takeaways out of that that we are aware.

Can't agree more with you. There is lot of potential to be more efficient by making progress with these intiatives -  key aspects like parking, security will surely be addressed at better capacity.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
Yes, and waste management is so necessary. There should never be a reason for piles of garbage to remain on city streets, or for waste receptacles to be overfull, exacerbating the rodent problem.

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@srufolo1, It will be great when every city is a smart city. However, a smart city will only be as good the programmer who coded the smart technology. When it fails how long will it take to fix the problem and restore service to normal levels?

Re: Smarter Business Models for NB-IoT
@freehe  Good point. Garbage in, garbage out (no pun intended). There are always mistakes made, and  you're right, fixing them could cost time and money. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens with this.

Good points. Certainly we have to deal with detecting gaps in the process of evolution. Analyzing those gaps and moving along with corrections would be the right way to go forward. We will get to know more in real time as we go forward.

That is a good point. But certainly we have to go thru this phase of errors as the technology matures and stabilizes. At this stage developing good contingency options becomes very critical in this process.

Top Sectors
Reed said the top sectors for telco IoT business are smart utilities and smart cities, which includes the sub-categories of smart metering, smart parking, smart tracking, smart trash bin and environment monitoring.

Most of sectors listed above are already inflight. Smart utilities and cities are actively going on in major cities, Boston being on top in the list with that intiative.


I am also aware that Newyork city is already using smart metering and smart parking features.

Statistics
"...in 2015 there were 400 million cellular IoT connections and that's forecast to grow by seven times to 3 billion cellular IoT connections in 2020."

This statistic is believable since most consumers have multiple cellular devices. At one point I had three cell phones in addition to an iPod and laptop plus a wireless printer.

It is difficult nowadays to have just one IoT connection due to aggressive advertising and since most consumers use multiple devices for multiple uses.
