How the demands of constrained IoT are reshaping the connectivity landscape

The IoT technology landscape is increasingly being defined by its ability to address large numbers of devices in increasingly inhospitable environments by virtue of slimming down the features and functionality of the offering to make it more appropriate. Last year, we at Transforma Insights published a report on what we termed the ‘Thin IoT stack’. The report examined the arrival of a set of technologies across the IoT stack that are specifically aimed at coping with dealing with the constraints of power, location, space, processing and several other factors that will be increasingly common in a large volume of IoT deployments. The implications of this shift will be felt widely across all aspects of how IoT is deployed, says Matt Hatton, founding partner, Transforma Insights.

IoT is good for the planet, but trade-offs are necessary

An identity crisis, a catch-22, a €3.3m problem? What’s in the Unabiz/Sigfox in-tray?

It is unclear from the letter whether the €3.3 million fee included the €300,000 for Sigfox SAS, as well.
