IoT/M2M routers and gateways, box-type devices that provide network connectivity and protocol bridging, have been a longstanding staple for connecting machines and things and this important role is not expected to change. In fact, besides facilitating hub and spoke architectures for a growing number of end nodes, gateways will be important devices for executing analytics functions at the edge.
In this dataset is presented gateway forecasts for IoT markets segmented by 31 application segments, the same application segments found in the ABI Research flagship product, IoT Market Tracker. These segments are also grouped into three major application markets: mobility and transportation; commercial and enterprise; and industrial and infrastructure. Forecasts are provided for shipments, revenues and install base. These same forecasts are also provided for primary WAN connectivity technologies of cellular, fixed line and satellite. Regional forecasts are provided for North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East/Africa.
