Asset Tracking: Market Opportunities in the Era of LPWA

Asset tracking solutions have evolved from processing asset tracking data periodically in batches to near-real-time through the integration of hardware, software, and processes. A number of industries have adopted IoT-based asset tracking using Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Network connectivity technologies to derive valuable insights to deliver more efficient operations.

This report analyzes the asset tracking market, which includes location tracking of stationary or slow-moving assets. This analysis includes asset tracking solutions where location tracking as an application is the entry point for solution providers to offer other value-added monitoring of environmental conditions, such as light, temperature, humidity, pressure, altitude, etc.

The report introduces different connectivity technologies which includes both short-range wireless and Wide area network technologies but focuses on Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) network technologies that are seen as popular WAN connectivity choices to connect battery powered sensor devices used for geolocation and asset tracking solutions.

PTC LiveWorx 2018: Evolving to Become the “Digital Thread” for Enterprise Transformation

3Q 2018

PTC just completed its latest LiveWorx event, which was held June 18 to 20 in Boston, Massachusetts. This year was its biggest event ever, with more than 6,000 attendees. The event showcased all of PTC’s products and services that provide enterprises with a complete set of tools to create, manufacture, operate, and service products. This event was a bit different from past events, as more of PTC’s portfolio was showcased beyond the Internet of Things (IoT), which demonstrates PTC’s evolution as it seeks to become the “digital thread” in the smart connected world.


Vodafone B2B IoT Strategy: Heavy on the Ends, Light in the Middle

1Q 2018

Vodafone has been an aggressive operator in the B2B IoT market, mostly driven by its heritage in DSL/fiber infrastructure, unified communications, and mobile networks. In addition, the enterprise emphasis also comes about due to its international mobile network footprint spanning countries with a large business base of customers and significant business activity, including the United Kingdom, Germany, and India. But a review of Vodafone’s IoT strategy based on information provided by its recent analyst event suggests that it is de-emphasizing the middle of the IoT value chain and placing greater emphasis on its own cloud services. This is interesting, but also risky!
