Profiting from the Internet of Things (IoT): Above and Beyond Connectivity

The forecasts that envision 50 billion connected devices by 2017 are staggering. Especially when you consider these forecasts are based upon counting only devices – smart phones, smart tablets, smart meters and the like – where the connectivity itself is central to the device’s function.

This paper looks at the potential business opportunity for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) in the growing arena of the Internet of Things (IoT) and asks: what is necessary to keep CSPs profitably at the heart of M2M's rapidly evolving ecosystems? To monetize M2M, what business models are carriers adopting and what promises the greatest profit?

It seems an evolutionary imperative for CSPs to adapt their OSS/BSS to meet the new environmental realities of the Internet of Things and jump to the top of the M2M food chain. Download the white paper to learn how CSPs can manage the data, devices, and services associated with M2M to move beyond connectivity and deliver convergent insights and enhanced value.
