    3 IoT Predictions for 2024 & Beyond

    3 IoT Predictions for 2024 & Beyond

    While 2023 was all about the device for the IoT industry, 2024 is already shaping up to emphasize the device even more than before.
    The overarching theme of Eseye’s predictions for 2023 was how mobile network operators (MNOs) were finally going to cede control of IoT connectivity to enterprises. The predictions didn’t quite play out as expected, but they were fairly accurate:

    The MNO lock was finally broken, but the driver was the eSim rather than the hyperscaler threat. There’s more interest in roaming between private and public networks, but adoption is a little slower than anticipated.People are adopting multi-radio access type (RAT) technology — as part of operator-agnostic connectivity, which is Eseye’s DNA — though not necessarily in the same device. The next step is putting them together.Consumer-enterprise IoT convergence is happening, as evidenced by home-based EV chargers, home security, remote patient monitoring, rising interest in IoT within elderly care, and the sheer proliferation of devices. 
    2023 was meant to be the year of the device, but its importance in IoT has been underestimated. Consider SmartConnect increasing connectivity from 93 to 99 percent for PharmaWatch with intelligence at the edge.
    On balance, the mid-year reflection proved the main trend to be accurate: MNOs did lose power over IoT. 
    Based on the theme of the device at the center, Eseye makes three big predictions for 2024:

    Smart connectivity will securely and reliably link intelligence from the device to the cloud.Connectivity will provide applications with feedback to make intelligent decisions about whether to process data on the cloud or on the device.With the rise of AI, IoT business use cases will focus more on trust, data protection, and regulatory compliance.
    Listen to the podcast to learn about how 2024 will be the year of the IoT intelligent edge.

    How Amazon is Opening Doors on a Global Scale

    How Amazon is Opening Doors on a Global Scale

    When you’re delivering billions of packages a year and you want to make sure they arrive on time, device connectivity and availability are mission-critical.
    To this end, Amazon is on a mission to ensure that none of its customers is ever missing a package or parcel — or awaiting a late one. Introducing Amazon Key for Business: a smart fob that enables drivers to easily access multi-unit buildings and gated communities to deliver Amazon orders.
    The 41st episode of the IoT Leaders Podcast features Amazon Key for Business software engineering manager and leader Vijayakrishnan Nagarajan. Vijay talks about: 
    ·       Amazon’s ongoing expansion — currently in eight countries across three continents — and how the company will gain additional market share.
    ·       The importance of operational excellence in solving device connectivity and availability.
    ·       Why over-the-air (OTA) capabilities and infrastructure matter to a company’s long-term success.
    Tune in to hear how Amazon Key’s partnership with Eseye led to improved device availability and how Amazon continues its quest for even more growth.

    Special 40th Edition | Eseye’s Founders: The Road from Zigbee to Ubiquitous Global Cellular IoT

    Special 40th Edition | Eseye’s Founders: The Road from Zigbee to Ubiquitous Global Cellular IoT

    It turns out that big mobile network players can learn a lot from the airline industry. These two seemingly disparate industries actually have more in common than might appear at first glance.
    It is one of several topics discussed on our 40th special edition of IoT Leaders, which brings together Eseye’s two Founders Ian Marsden and Paul Marshall to discuss the global IoT connectivity challenges they set out to solve when they started Eseye.
    The show explores:
    Eseye’s founding story from Zigbee to SGP.32 and beyond, including top a-ha moments from the past 16 yearsWhy achieving 80% connectivity uptime kills the IoT business caseThe unsustainability of roaming as a quick fix for connectivity, and why there’s a need for a new financial model for roamingWhat mobile network operators (MNOs) can learn from the airline industry, and the Star Alliance in particularWhy SGP.32 will be a big feature for 2024
    Tune in to hear how Eseye tackled the challenges surrounding global connectivity long before it became an industry buzzword, and what the journey looks like today.

    Connecting Africa: Delivering IoT in Challenging Environments

    Connecting Africa: Delivering IoT in Challenging Environments

    In the United States, you deal with three operators: AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. In Africa? Try more than 100.
    But the fact that Africa is such a different landscape to the US and European markets is the very key to why tracking, telematics, and IoT company Online Solutions has risen as a leader in the space.
    Founder and Director Francesco Manis joins the IoT Leaders podcast to share how solving problems outside so-called “mature” economies has led to quicker growth and success.
    The show explores:
    - Why connecting to the wrong tower might cause roaming rates to skyrocket
    - How the intricacies of multi-region networking in Africa makes connectivity uniquely difficult to tackle
    - Why backend process optimization is the real ROI of IoT
    - How the use of AI and smart data collation is critical in digital transformation
    Tune in to hear how Online Solutions has overcome some of the biggest challenges across the telecom landscape today.

    Connected by Design: Why IoT Needs a Device-First Approach

    Connected by Design: Why IoT Needs a Device-First Approach

    It is disheartening, but true: 84% find that hardware design is the number one barrier to IoT deployments. Why?
    Simply put: it’s all about the device. If connectivity isn’t built into the device from the outset, and instead jammed in at the end, it won’t work.
    Transforma Insights Founding Partner Matt Hatton and Eseye SVP Strategy & Alliances Larry Socher both join Nick Earle on the IoT Leaders podcast to share insight on why the IoT industry remains behind the curve on solving connectivity.
    Together, Nick, Matt and Larry dive into:
    - The key conclusions from the last 10 years of IoT
    - Why it’s crucial that connectivity is designed into a device-first approach
    - What makes an IoT project standard so difficult to build out
    - Where consultancy fees fit into it 
    Tune in to hear how Transforma Insights identifies the major challenges to the IoT industry — and how Eseye works to overcome them.
