Con­quer IoT Com­plex­ity

Voice&Data - - TRENDS 2017 -

Today smart­phones and tablets are ev­ery­where and so­cial net­work­ing apps such as What­sApp and Snapchat are boom­ing. In the next phase, ev­ery­day ob­jects will con­nect and be­come part of in­for­ma­tion sys­tems and end-user ap­pli­ca­tions. Our daily lives will change as ma­chines and hu­mans in­ter­act to make our so­ci­ety safer, greener and health­ier. Con­nected wear­ables and telemedicine will help im­prove peo­ple’s health, homes will be safer and there will be fewer road fa­tal­i­ties.

This con­ver­gence of ma­chine-to-ma­chine (M2M) com­mu­ni­ca­tions, big data an­a­lyt­ics and the growth in con­nected de­vices is en­abling a highly con­nected world known as the In­ter­net of Things (IoT). The com­ing decades will be char­ac­ter­ized by bil­lions of smart de­vices, tril­lions of dol­lars in eco­nomic growth and cost sav­ings and ex­abytes of sen­sor-gen­er­ated data. In this en­vi­ron­ment, the IoT is emerg­ing as an un­prece­dented busi­ness op­por­tu­nity for many play­ers in the tele­coms, IT and con­sumer elec­tron­ics in­dus­tries.

The world­wide In­ter­net of Things (IoT) mar­ket is ex­pected to be a USD 328 bil­lion mar­ket by 2020. The IoT mar­ket in In­dia is poised to reach USD 15 bil­lion by 2020 ac­count­ing for nearly 5 per­cent of the to­tal global mar­ket. In­dian gov­ern­ment has com­mit­ted over USD 1 bil­lion in­vest­ment in build­ing 100 smart cities ev­ery year for next 5 years. With nearly 120 firms of­fer­ing so­lu­tions in the IoT seg­ment, there are tremen­dous op­por­tu­ni­ties for fur­ther growth. Ap­prox­i­mately 70% of IOT start-ups have emerged since 2010. Pri­mary fac­tors driv­ing In­dian firms to de­ploy IoT are: In­stant & real time de­ci­sion mak­ing Rise of big data an­a­lyt­ics In­creas­ing smart phone and mo­bile in­ter­net pen­e­tra­tion

Chang­ing life­styles of the con­sumer be­com­ing more tech savvy

Need for main­tain­ing a se­cure and safe work­ing en­vi­ron­ment to avoid cy­ber threats

Cost ef­fec­tive­ness and high ROI One of the key ini­tia­tives of the In­dian gov­ern­ment is to build smart cities across the coun­try. Ma­jor as­pects of a smart city gov­ern­ment is fo­cus­ing on are: Smart park­ing In­tel­li­gent trans­port sys­tem Tele-care Woman Safety Smart grids Smart ur­ban light­ing Waste man­age­ment Smart city main­te­nance Dig­i­tal-sig­nage Wa­ter Man­age­ment

Strat­egy to cre­ate bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties in IoT

IoT has a trans­for­ma­tional im­pact on all sec­tors be­cause it is fun­da­men­tally chang­ing prod­ucts, busi­ness mod­els, pro­cesses and customer in­ter­ac­tion. Nokia’s 3-layer ap­proach to­wards a Pro­gram­mable World is help­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions to be­come more ef­fi­cient, ag­ile and real-time.

Scal­a­bil­ity, cov­er­age, avail­abil­ity, la­tency, in­ter­op­er­abil­ity, and se­cu­rity are key re­quire­ments for IoT con­nec­tiv­ity and some of the so­lu­tions to ad­dress this are

net­works will sup­port stan­dard cel­lu­lar pro­to­cols (EC-GSM, NB-IOT, eMTC,) as well as Wi-Fi, LoRa and MuLTE­fire, while LTE en­ables mis­sion crit­i­cal pub­lic safety and first re­spon­der ser­vices.

mo­bile core which is IoT op­ti­mized to help re­duce sig­nalling traf­fic, op­ti­miz­ing re­sources, and re­duc­ing power con­sump­tion, en­abling op­er­a­tors to of­fer SLA-based con­nec­tiv­ity.
