Telna Whitepaper: The COVID-19 Impact on Cellular IoT - an Industry Analysis

Thursday 16 July 2020 | 12:37 CET | White paper | provided by Telna
All over the world, travel restrictions have been put into place, businesses have either moved to WFH (work-from-home) environments or are operating under far from business-as-usual circumstances. Meanwhile, the world’s fixed broadband infrastructure quakes due to a massive increase in video conferencing and video content streaming.
Covid-19 has caused huge disruption to business. Cellular IoT will form a key part of new digitization plans to mitigate future risk:
  • Migration to work-from-home en masse requires reliable connectivity. Therefore, failover solutions in case of fixed-line broadband issues will increase in demand.
  • The pandemic has exposed bottlenecks and inefficiency in the supply chain. Consignment and condition tracking alongside new business models based around IoT will emerge to reduce revenue loss and improve product flow.
  • The change in what 'remote' means for businesses will demand connectivity for monitoring and managing assets securely.
  • Businesses will inevitably seek to implement automation as a means of reducing employee risk and revenue loss associated with fallout from the pandemic. Connectivity will be required to deploy and manage these efforts.
  • Public and enterprise monitoring of citizen and employee wellbeing will become a crucial part of future efforts to 'flatten the curve'. Connectivity will, in turn, play a key role in gathering data.
New demand for cellular IoT following the pandemic could lead to over 11 billion cellular IoT connections in 2025. This is a threefold increase from growth predictions made for the market before the onset of the virus. This whitepaper will help operators and IoT service providers understand how, and why, cellular IoT is likely to see accelerated demand. It provides an analysis of several market verticals impacted and offers expert insight into how the industry can meet this new demand for connected devices and assets.
