IoT connectivity disruptors: case studies and analysis (volume V)
This report analyses and compares the IoT connectivity offerings of several IoT connectivity disruptors. It outlines the companies’ strategies for delivering IoT connectivity and the implications of these approaches for other connectivity providers, including mobile network operators (MNOs) that are competing to supply IoT connectivity.
This report provides:
- an overview and analysis of selected IoT connectivity disruptors’ ownership and funding mechanisms
- analysis of IoT connectivity disruptors’ strategies, strengths and weaknesses
- implications for MNOs and the IoT connectivity market.
The following companies are featured in case studies.
This report is the fifth in a series of reports on IoT companies. The first four reports in this series are IoT MVNOs: case studies and analysis (Volume I), IoT MVNOs: case studies and analysis (volume II), IoT MVNOs: case studies and analysis (volume III) and IoT connectivity disruptors: case studies and analysis (Volume IV). In the first three volumes, we referred to ‘IoT MVNOs’, but we have expanded our definition to include all alternative IoT connectivity providers and enablers.
