    This report examines the likely trends and developments in cellular wide area network technologies, ecosystem and commercial relationships, including the face of radio access networks, the new dynamics in how core and access networks are delivered, new models for spectrum ownership, the impact of hyperscalers, pricing and network economics, regulation and the relationships between the various participants in the ecosystem.

    Today the cellular connectivity landscape for IoT looks completely different from ten years ago. In 2010 most devices would have been connected by MVNOs/resellers, almost all based on roaming and the lion’s share using 2G. Fast forward to 2020 and the world has changed. 2G and 3G are on their way out and 4G is the workhorse for much of IoT. Meanwhile 5G and new LPWA networks have arrived. The decade also saw the enforcement of permanent roaming rules and the arrival of eSIM, the platformisation of the sector, and a precipitous decline in prices and margins. The big question for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs ), Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), infrastructure vendors and adopters of IoT is, what does the 2020s have in store?

        AI, DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND IOT REPORTS & MORE

        Transforma Insights’ series of Digital Transformation research covers all aspects of the Digital Transformation technologies, markets and vendors that we cover, including Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Technology Insight Reports provide a qualitative guide to the impact of the twelve technology families upon which we focus, Case Study Insight Reports analyse the information in the Best Practice & Vendor Selection Database, Forecast Insight Reports expand upon the data in the TAM Forecasts, Key Topic Insight Reports cover other interesting and noteworthy topics, and Vendor Insight Reports identify the relative strengths and weaknesses of vendors and show which should be top of any buyer's list when implementing Digital Transformation. A more detailed version of the Vendor Insight Reports is available for our ‘Corporate’ subscribers in the form of our Peer Benchmarking reports detailing the capabilities of vendors within the market being examined.

        Digital Transformation Reports are far from the only way that we help our clients. We offer comprehensive support, strategic insight and market intelligence for any organisation interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Transformation (DX).
