A new generation of smart devices is set to have embedded connectivity and manufacturers have a number of technologies to select to deliver network connectivity.
“Looking at demand for connectivity, while cellular will not have the highest number of connections, or the highest average revenue per connection, it will provide the greatest opportunity to drive the most overall value from those connections,” says
Industries including Automotive, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Retail, Security, Energy and others will all add connectivity to devices and products in a bid to improve efficiency, cut costs, and improve customer service. Across M2M device connectivity options a combination of mobility, flexibility, coverage and simple connection management, will ensure strong adoption for cellular. The value around that proposition also positions cellular network operators to best leverage a return for those connections.
“Over the forecast period short-range wireless or wireless sensor network connectivity will outpace cellular connection growth, but there is little ability for those connections to directly deliver any revenues for the provision of that connectivity,” adds Collins. “In addition, satellite with higher revenue per connection does not have the same versatility as cellular limiting its appeal to fewer verticals.”
