IoT security becomes a hot topic at The INQUIRER and Intel's roundtable event
Jon Blackmore's insight:
Security is always an issue, especially within emerging trends and immature technology. My talks with Smart City executives highlighted consumer/citizen adoption is key within M2M IOT technology moving forward and security is at the heart of adoption confidence. Take cloud for instance.! what do you think
The way of the future is constant connection. We are already living in a world with 50 million sensors—in a few years, the number of sensors will increase to 2 trillion. This emerging machine-to-machine or M2M infrastructure will take connectivity to a whole new level. M2M technology has been a... http://dashburst.com/infographic/m2m-field-tech-infographic/
The M2M market has been growing exponentially over the past few years. In 2013, the technology is poised to see substantial uptake due to the growing number of connected devices, the evolving uses for the technology and the increasing list of industries to which the technology can be applied. Wireless networks that are interconnected through machine-to-machine communications can see increases in production, efficiency and save businesses substantial OpEx and CapEx. As a consequence, visiongain expects global wireless M2M revenues to reach $50.1billion in 2013.
Speaking at a seminar held by European Communucations, titled "Beyond Connectivity", Schlautmann said that the Fleet and Freight Management and Security and Surveillance sectors are the only two sectors achieving market "breakthrough". (...)
Schlautmann added that he "can't see" payments, vending and NFC becoming "mass market" in Europe, and added that metering and monitoring, often touted as a key vertical, offers little beyond basic connectivity revenues. Schlautmann also pointed out that "no other market" is so dependent on regulatory and legislative drivers - referencing eCall and smart metering as example. "If smart metering was not regulated then there would be no market at all," he said.
But it was for the e- and m-health market that he expressed his strongest reservations.(...)
"It's not about the number of devices." he said, "it's about revenue." To build revenues, telcos will need to develop ecosystems that let them orchestrate and develop services, so that they can benefit from the created value. At the moment, most markets exhibit far too many players, operating in too small spheres of influence. Telcos, by partnering, co-operating and forming alliances with partners throught the value chaing, could drive the sort of ecosystem consolidation that is required, he said, to drive "breakthrough" revenues.
These two industries are advanced because it makes sense, driving efficiency and squeezing the already ruthlessly tight margins in global transportation and with Security it is a governed requirement this is naturally the way to improve security, the infrastructure and imbedded capability to are already advanced enough to adopt M2M..
Needless to say the quicker any given industry and specific organisation adopts a Machine to machine strategy and roadmap the better!
