The global Internet of Things market will be worth $1.1 trillion in revenue by 2025 as market value shifts from connectivity to platforms, applications and services, according to new data from GSMA Intelligence. Connectivity is forecasted to decline to five per cent (US $51bn) of IoT revenues in 2025, which makes this a crucial time for operators to expand into new areas.

Beyond Connectivity describes how mobile operators are delivering innovative and transformative solutions to customers across big data, machine learning, analytics, edge computing and distributed ledger technologies, which stretch beyond just data connectivity.

By building these transformative IoT solutions, beyond connectivity, leading IoT operators and their partners are providing substantial benefits to customers such as increased productivity, reduced costs and automated business processes as well as driving innovative new products and services, new lines of business and new business models and creating a more sustainable and productive world.

Join this FierceWireless seminar to hear from three senior mobile network operators who will:

  • Describe how their Beyond Connectivity IoT solutions are driving innovative new services across a diverse range of sectors, transforming industries, businesses and lives.
  • Discuss their market strategies and showcase live examples.
  • Bring out how partnering in the wider ecosystem is central to success in the IoT.
