Mobile application uptake-it isn't only about iPhones.  Sure Apple's App Store now offers over 65,000 applications, and users have downloaded more than 1.5 billion iPhone and iPod touch applications in the 1st year since launch.

IoT Service Revenues to Reach $20 Billion

A new report from Juniper Research has forecast that Machine to Machine (M2M)) service revenues will reach $20 billion globally in 2015, as players across the M2M industry focus on simplifying the process of rolling out M2M for the end-user. However, the report -- M2M & Embedded Strategies: Telematics, POS, mHealth, Metering & Buildings 2013-2018 -- observed that the monetization opportunities offered by M2M services differ significantly according to the industry to which it is being applied. Thus, while telematics is particularly positive, smart metering, despite high forecast numbers and regulatory drivers, is still struggling to find an avenue for revenue generation.

Crossroad in Switching Technology

A switch is normally a hard thing, on or off, but today's switches are increasingly taking a soft approach. Wireless penetration, already strong with more than 1.2 billion subscribers, is expected to increase 61% to 1.7 billion subscribers by 2006, according to Motorola research. Wireless usage is displacing wireline at a rate that will soon make wireless the dominant medium for worldwide communication. In conjunction with this rapid growth, a vast number of communication options have become available to end users, including e-mail, Short Message Service (SMS), Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), and Push-To-Talk (PTT). For operators, this translates into significant growth in the global subscriber base and demand for both wireless voice and data services that will, in turn, provide the opportunity for greater revenue and greater market share.
