M2M LBS: The operator opportunity

M2M LBS: The operator opportunity

Guest post by Stevie Ooi, CEO of W-Locate. Location-based services (LBS) have seen very quick adoption in a number of industries, none more so than in the retail and advertising sectors. In fact, Berg Insights predicts that by 2018 these two sectors alone will have created a $15 billion industry. Powering this new industry will be data provided by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS and GLONASS. Often seen as the gold standard for LBS, GNSS solutions are not without their problems especially for indoor and...

Data through illumination: a new wireless connectivity technology based on light

Guest post by Emil Berthelsen, Principal Analyst, Machina Research.

Short range technologies such as Wi-Fi, BLE, 6Lowpan and Zigbee are set to dominate M2M connections; they will account for 77% of all M2M devices by the end of 2023.¹ A new wireless connectivity technology may soon be joining and complementing this group: visual light communications (VLC).

VLC, also termed as Li-Fi (Light Fidelity), uses visible light spectrum and an innovative modulation technique known as SIM-OFDM, to communicate between...

De-Hyping Smart Cities

De-Hyping Smart Cities

Guest post by Jim Morrish, Director & Founder, Machina Research. There is a lot of hype around the potential for smart cities and, undoubtedly, the adoption of ‘smart cities’ initiatives is gaining pace. But much of the discussion within the industry is essentially supply-side focussed, rather than demand side focussed. Vendors will often have a slightly utopian vision of what a smart city might look like, whilst currently ‘dumb city’ residents and stakeholders often remain unconvinced. In this article we seek to begin to...

When it comes to spectrum for M2M technologies, unlicensed doesn’t mean do-as-you-please

Guest post by Matt Hatton, Director, Machina Research.

An increasingly diverse range of access technologies are being used for the M2M connectivity which will underpin the Internet of Things.

In a recent Machina Research report¹ we examined the plethora of standards that are being used for M2M. There has been a noticeable recent expansion to the already broad range of technologies available, including Bluetooth Low Energy and a range of low power wide area (LPWA) technologies from firms such as Neul and Sigfox which...

M2M device saves the Amazon rainforest

M2M device saves the Amazon rainforest

Guest post by Eva Enanoria, LeadingQuest. The Tembe tribe, the indigenous people of Brazil, teams up with a tech start up company, Rainforest Connection to protect its rainforest from illegal logging activities, through a simple M2M device designed from old smartphones as deforestation threatens not only the Amazon. In fact it has become the second largest contributor to climate change because it produces more greenhouse gas than all the trucks, cars, airplanes and ships combined. Environmentalists believe that the best way to stop...
