M2M and IoT opportunities for telecoms operators Facing a relatively flat market for core services, IoT and M2M is a rare bright spot offering significant growth potential and the opportunity to take a role in new vertical markets, such as automotive, healthcare and smart cities. Operators though have many challenges with IoT. Connectivity, the entry point into IoT, is only one component of a solution and one that commands only a small share of revenues. Operators are trying to understand where and how to play a role in IoT.

This white paper outlines some of our thinking on these important topics, and describes our past project experience. Analysys Mason helps clients in all geographies and parts of the value chain to develop their approach to IoT. Our assignments range from rapid reviews of existing plans to full strategy development.

The articles cover the following topics:

  • Operators’ strategies for IoT 
  •  M2M in Asia–Pacific 
  •  IoT investments 
  •  Telehealth 
  •  LPWA strategy 
  •  Maintaining relevance in M2M/IoT
