Session 2:IoT Revenue model for Telecos /IoT adoption to Telco

  • Connectivity only service – providing SIM inside device, providing special data service for connected device
  • Third Party vertical IoT integration - In this approach, the operator partners with a provider of IoT/M2M solutions (solutions that typically comprise hardware and software), reselling the solution, often under its own brand to its own customers. Example applications in this category are fleet management or ePOS systems. Illustrations include Masternaut’s partnerships with Telefonica, Swisscom and KPN. In each case, the Masternaut application and device is sold and supported by the telecoms operator, which uses its own brand.
  • Selling internal product : The third approach is for an operator to sell its own solution in selected vertical markets, either developed internally or gained through acquisition and to control the service end to end. Vodafone and Verizon have followed this approach through acquisition (of Cobra and Hughes Telematics respectively) and a number of operators have also developed small, often bespoke, products internally.
  • Providing broad menu of M2M services : an operator could concentrate on what common elements it can provide for multiple vertical markets. These could include traditional operator strengths, such as connectivity, but also reach into different areas, such as hosting, support and application enablement.
