Mobile Europe - Only two M2M sectors ready for breakthrough

Mobile Europe - Only two M2M sectors ready for breakthrough | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

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.

Jon Blackmore's curator insight, May 21, 2014 4:56 AM

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!

By 2016: 100M wearable wireless sensors | Mobile Health: How Mobile Phones Support Health Care | Scoop.it

The market for wearable devices will exceed 100 million units annually by 2016, reports ABI Research in a new study. A study released by ABI last June estimated that 80 million of those units would be fitness sensors.
