Believe it or not, according to Tech Times, the number of connected devices is growing faster than the world population! Connected devices are becoming crucial everywhere and in every industry.
Gartner predicts that from 2015 to 2020 there will be a whopping 300% increase in the number of devices connected worldwide. In 2016 there will be 6.4 billion connected devices and 20.8 billion by 2020. Among all existing and future connected devices, mobile is, and will to continue to be, the primary interface. This means that there are major challenges, as well as rewarding opportunities looking-forward for mobile carriers.
According to a survey executed by Statista, within the next five years, the majority of consumers are most likely to use smart appliances, followed by smart energy meters, wearable devices, connected cars and smart healthcare devices.
Of the connected devices listed above, along with numerous others on the market, each has the ability to connect to a smartphone. This is the connection consumers crave because when remote, they can control, manage, and constantly remain informed on various features according to their personal preferences. Communication and media providers need to adequately prepare now and for the future in order to sufficiently satisfy their customers growing needs.
With the M2M market predicted to accelerate over the next few years, reaching over 20 billion connected devices by 2020, communication and media providers must be ready. With the proper business, technical and operational strategy in place, providers have the opportunity to succeed and overcome the challenges typically faced by M2M.
