IoT Networks Should Emphasize Value

The Internet of Things continues to expand, and several telecommunications companies

are working to make it easier to adopt these products and integrate the IoT into daily

business operations. As the MIT Technology Review discussed, many countries around

the world are creating nationwide wireless IoT networks. Recently, the Dutch company

KPN finished constructing its network in the Netherlands. This IoT structure has lower

operational costs and energy requirements than cellular networks and connects sensors

from numerous public institutions, such as the Port of Rotterdam and Schiphol Airport.

One of KPN’s biggest concerns, according to MIT Technology Review, is the cost of

building such an extensive infrastructure. A company executive told MIT Technology

Review that KPN has contracts to link 1.5 million IoT devices, although not all of them

are currently connected. KPN plans to use a subscription billing model to charge for each

connected device based on its data requirements.

Other companies face similar issues. The French startup SigFox has an IoT network that

spans 22 countries, covering 340 million people. According to SigFox’s vice president of

communications, the company plans to cut its subscription billing prices as low as

possible as fast as it can. This would bring early IoT adopters to its infrastructure and

encourage new users to purchase IoT devices.

Businesses say IoT is crucial for success

Thankfully for these and other telecommunications companies, businesses realize the

benefits of IoT. If these telecom organizations can keep the cost of subscriptions low,

they’ll likely see more enterprises join their networks.

To understand exactly how businesses view the world of IoT, Vodafone conducted and

released its fourth annual IoT Barometer Report. The survey compiles data and opinions

from companies around the world, including Brazil, South Africa, South Korea, Japan,

India and the U.S. One of the most notable statistics from the survey was that 76 percent

of enterprises believe IoT is a key component that will lead companies to success in the

future. Sixty-three percent expect to have IoT projects in place by the end of 2017.

Early adopters of IoT devices are happy with their results, using the technology to

automate their supply chains, monitor machines remotely, lessen the costs of operations,

build new products and more. These companies note that IoT devices improve the

company experience, and more than half use the technology for large-scale business

transformations. Corporations also noted that IoT improves the customer experience. In

fact, this was the most commonly reported benefit, with better productivity falling in

second place.

On average, companies that currently use IoT products saw a 20 percent improvement

in cost and asset utilization, system uptime and revenue. This could be why businesses

spend, on average, a quarter of their information technology budgets on IoT.

If telecom companies want to encourage more businesses to adopt IoT technology, they

should assert how many current businesses find value in this service. IoT provides real-

time feedback and information, allowing companies to remain competitive on a global

scale.
