Mobile Communication Predictions forMobile Communication Predictions for 2014: A Frost & Sullivan Perspective PR Newswire LONDON, Dec. 12, 2013 - Next year will be a year of evolution rather than revolution European mobile network operators (MNOs) have long been trying to shape their role in a digital society. According to Frost & Sullivan predictions for 2014, the biggest opportunity for MNOs will come in re-focussing business models to truly leverage their unique position in the communications value chain: as a network provider, device channel, digital service provider and – most importantly – a trusted custodian of valuable customer data. "One of the main trends that will continue to gather pace is machine-to- machine (M2M); more than three-quarters of European MNOs will offer M2M in 2014," said Frost & Sullivan Research Director, Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), Adrian Drozd. Increasing competitive pressure will accelerate product development and innovation in industries such as Retail and Industrial Automation as MNOs aim to capture a bigger piece of the M2M opportunity beyond more traditional Automotive and Energy applications. 2014 is set to be the year when the focus of both IT buyers and providers shifts to the Internet of Things (IoT). The explosion of IoT activity in 2014 and beyond will be driven by the nexus of low cost sensors, connectivity networks, cloud computing, advanced data analytics and mobility.
