Strategy report | PPTX and PDF (16 slides) | IoT and M2M Services
The agricultural sector has been slow to adopt IoT technologies and it is a difficult industry for operators to navigate. Connectivity alone will generate little revenue. Instead, operators will need to partner to build solutions or, in some cases, acquire the relevant skills.
This report provides:
- recommendations for operators on strategies for building or developing solutions, on the need to build a portfolio of network technologies to cater to different needs and on working with channel partners to bring the solutions to market
- a forecast of IoT connectivity and revenue in the agricultural sector
- examples of different operator and vendor approaches.
