  1. Rise Of The Augmented Worker

    How Enterprise Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and the Consumerization of Software will Revolutionize Manufacturing.

  2. Survival Guide For 2G, 3G Network Sunsets

    It is predicted that all major North American carriers will begin shutting down their 2G and 3G networks over the next three to five years, meaning the time is now for IoT solution providers leveraging these networks to begin planning their transition to LTE. This may seem like a daunting undertaking for organizations who have long relied on 2G and 3G to power their connected solutions, but by carefully planning and executing against a comprehensive LTE migration strategy, IoT providers can not only sustain the success of their deployments but also reap the benefits that LTE has to offer. 

  3. The Future Of Service Delivery: Humans, AI And Automation

    The field service market is growing rapidly, with some estimates projecting it to more than double in size by 2022. At the same time, customer expectations around the speed and quality of service are increasing. In order to keep pace, field service organizations are investing in new tools and systems. Most companies are somewhere on the path to digitization, but they need to do more. Simply wrapping a layer of technology around traditional pen-and-paper processes is no longer enough -- they should be looking to drive efficiency through intelligent automation.

  4. Three Ways IoT Is Changing Field Service

    Smart machines are everywhere -- in our homes, our driveways, even our power grids and assembly lines. The number of connected devices has almost doubled over the last three years, from 15 billion in 2015 to more than 25 billion today. By 2025, that number is expected to eclipse 75 billion.

  5. Predictive, Not Reactive: Why IoT Is Transforming Field Service

    Predictive maintenance is the future of field service — and it just may be here. Here’s what you need to know about implementing predictive maintenance in your organization.

  6. Why IoT Projects Fail: Six Critical Capabilities You Need To Consider

    Despite the rising and rapid pursuit of IoT by companies across virtually every industry, the complexity of this new world of technology continues to outpace its potential. As organizations attempt to navigate the unforeseen intricacies of the IoT ecosystem, challenges arise and businesses suffer from delayed time-to-market, slowed revenue realization, technology incompatibilities, budget overruns, and even complete project failures.

  7. IoT Innovations For Alleviating IT/OT Convergence Challenges

    Many organizations – especially those in industries such as industrial, healthcare, and fleet, to name a few – rely on two primary technology groups and systems to execute business operations: information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT).

  8. eSIM 101: An Introduction To eSIM For IoT

    Although there have been significant advancements in SIM card technologies, traditional SIMs essentially lock users into a single carrier network and technology, making it highly inefficient and expensive to change carriers or upgrade to new cellular technologies. As a result, an increasing number of IoT providers are seeking eSIM technologies.

  9. Build Vs. Buy: Key Questions To Ask To Make The Right IoT Endpoint Decision

    Across industries and across use cases and business processes, organizations are increasingly implementing Internet of Things (IoT) applications to improve operational efficiencies, enhance existing offerings, and bring new offerings to market.

  10. Field Service Insight Trend #2: IoT - Computing At The Edge

    The technology landscape for IoT devices is undergoing a big change. The data protocols used to connect assets to the cloud are being upgraded, providing new opportunities and use cases for a wide range of industries. Although the shift from 3G to LTE has been in place for consumer technology, its impacts on commercial telematics is just starting to be felt. This is especially true for North America where many of the large network carriers are rolling out new dedicated protocols and expanding to other markets in Europe and China.
