End-to-End Identity Solution Providers Favored Where Supply Chain Difficulties Exist

Those offering an end-to-end solution or a service covering a wider spectrum of the value chain, for instance, card vendors who include enrollment and personalization in their service, are in a favored position as it relates to supply chain problems.

Enterprise and Telecom Spending Will Drive Edge Deployment Despite Hyperscaler Head Start

The use cases demanding low latency compute capabilities that process data at or near the point of creation in near real-time will not be satisfied cost-effectively by deploying multiple, large, de-centralized hyperscaler backbone extensions; rather, they will be met by deploying a network of smaller, more agile, yet powerful compute environments that are well connected, or by the enterprise themselves, deploying solutions on-site that will meet their needs.

Nestwave Demonstrates Technology IP with ThinTrack Device

The tracker is a thin (3mm) and light (15g) device that is designed to target logistics use cases such as parcel tracking by slipping the device into an envelope or package. The device communicates over LTE-M and uses a thin battery that offers a claimed “multi-year” battery life.

Over US$13 Billion Worth of Goods are Stolen Each Year – How Can IoT Help?

Two recommended solutions for mitigating theft with IoT would be to either implement condition-based sensors or smart door locks with NB-IoT technology built in. The low cost that comes with the NB-IoT technology as well as the “plug and play” capability makes this solution far more practical than sending a human out for constant monitoring or consistent checkups.

Commercial and Industrial Machine Vision Market to Reach US$36 Billion by 2027

Machine vision is rapidly becoming a key enabling technology for digitalization and automation in automotive, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, smart buildings, smart cities, transportation, and logistics. According to ABI Research, the total revenue of machine vision technology in the seven major markets is expected to reach US$36 billion by 2027, up from US$21.4 billion in 2022. This growth translates to a CAGR of 11%.

Traditionally, machine vision was primarily focused on surveillance and security, asset monitoring, and defect inspection. These mature applications continue to drive the main bulk of total camera shipments within the enterprise market. However, the industry is going through an exciting phase. The COVID-19 pandemic and the desire for digitalization have led to the emergence of innovative use cases, such as occupancy detection, crowd monitoring, predictive maintenance, high precision automated inspection, automated picking, and sorting systems in warehouses.

These innovative use cases are expected to drive future growth of the industry. A key enabler of these innovation use cases is Machine Learning (ML), particularly Deep Learning (DL) technology in machine vision. Most, if not all, technology suppliers offer DL-based solutions that are flexible, scalable, and highly efficient. At the same time, enterprises are waking up to the benefits of DL-based machine vision,” said Lian Jye Su, Principal Analyst. “When combined with factors such as decreasing component and engineering cost, increasing ease of integration with third-party solutions, growing open-source software and toolkits, the barrier to adopt an effective machine vision solution has lowered significantly for many enterprises.”

More Than 5.5 Billion Smart Home Matter-Compliant Devices will Ship Between 2022 and 2030

Still months from its completion, the Matter smart home specification is already driving new products and strategies across the smart home market. With a host of major players, technology suppliers, and partners already pledged to delivering Matter compliant offerings, the specification will dominate the smart home landscape within five years. This year more than one hundred million devices will ship supporting the specification and within five years more than half of the world’s key smart home devices will ship supporting Matter. Between 2022 and the end of the decade, more than 5.5 billion Matter compliant smart home devices will ship, according to a new report from ABI Research.

Matter will significantly change the way consumers adopt and use their smart home purchases, but it will also reconfigure vendor incentives for smart home engagement. “Matter will drive smart home platforms capabilities to onboard and manage smart home devices – dispensing with a generation of device vendor apps,” says Jonathan Collins, Smart Home Research Director. “OEM/ODMs will have to quickly establish how they adapt to Matter and how to best protect and expand their customer base.

What to expect at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event

CNN

Samsung is expected to unveil three new Galaxy S devices at its annual Unpacked product launch event on Wednesday.

Samsung remains the top smartphone seller globally with its market share hovering between 20%-22%, according to market research firm ABI Research. The new devices will likely include all of the features you'd expect from a smartphone in 2022: camera upgrades, better battery life and next-generation chips that improve the user experience. Third-placed Xiaomi has been massively growing shipments over the past couple of years as it targets markets outside China, notably India and Europe.
