Head of Smart Cities

“Commercial and government users are already benefitting from IoT solutions, typically via 4G and non-cellular LPWA networks, for example, Sigfox and LoRa. At a later stage, 5G will give rise to a new breed of IoT use cases.

However, important success factors to consider before deploying IoT solutions include the need to ensure low power consumption for long device lifecycles and low technology costs for good return on investment. Wide coverage and connectivity across large quantities of devices also need to be evaluated. In addition, the role that powerful analytics plays in identifying and predicting conditions, and in ensuring effective preventative measures, is not to be ignored. Such analytics are fundamental to fulfilling the primary goal of IoT, which is to rapidly gain valuable insights from data to assist decision making. Without these, IoT cannot be considered truly ‘smart’ and thus runs the risk of being reduced to the level of legacy M2M, which we have now moved on from.”
