Enterprise IoT challenged by global scalability
Complexities associated with IoT ‘severely limits’ enterprise adoption
The majority of enterprises are in the process of deploying “Internet of Things” solutions, according to recent research, but are getting caught up balancing global scalability with security, interoperability and other challenges.
San Antonio-based research firm James Brehm & Associates report 73% of enterprises surveyed are “experimenting with or implementing IoT solutions.”
Jose Gallardo, director of account development from James Brehm & Associates, discussed the issue in a recent social media post.
“While many feel we’re nearing the crest of the hype-cycle encompassing IoT, and despite the industry conjecture speculating on how IoT can fully transform business processes across the value chain, the inability to address and solve the complexities associated with IoT deployments today severely limits — and even thwarts — the industry’s ability to achieve its full potential,” Gallardo wrote.
By way of a potential solution, Gallardo points to European firm Eseye, which bills itself as a global provider of “connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT). We ensure our customers in homes, enterprises and cities are intelligently connected to the internet in 116 countries and in many established and new industries.”
Eseye counts among its clients players in the energy, smart cities, healthcare, retail, finance, transportation and telecommunications verticals. And Gallardo said the company is poised to make a major move into the U.S. market.
From his post, Eseye plans on “launching a U.S. operation, which will help their clients to meet these challenges head on and revolutionize IoT and remove these complexities through its proprietary AnyNet SIM, managed connectivity suite and data visualization and management solutions.”
The company’s product portfolio is anchored by the AnyNet SIM, which it claims is network agnostic and features multi IMSI and over-the-air reprogramming.
“The ability to remove the complexities of IoT for our customers, no matter where they are in the world, is essential,” explained Eseye CEO Julian Hardy. “We normalize the behaviour and cost of IoT devices the world over, making IoT deployments easier and more predictable allowing customers to unlock their potential for IoT success. The strategy has been instrumental in our growth and has enabled us to establish the largest global footprint of any non-mobile network operator with real office locations across four continents and an installed base covering 116 countries.”
