Retail Applications and Wireless M2M - 3rd Edition

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Retail Applications and Wireless M2M – 3rd Edition
http://www.reportlinker.com/p0881761/Retail-Applications-and-Wireless-M2M-–-3rd-Edition.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Telecommunication_Services

The retail industry is an important vertical for cellular M2M connectivity with 18.4 million cellular connections today and a total market size of nearly 90 million POS terminals, ATMs, vending machines, parking meters and fare collection devices worldwide. Berg Insight forecasts that the number of cellular M2M connections in the retail industry will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6 percent to reach 33.3 million connections worldwide in 2018. Shipments of cellular M2M devices will at the same time increase at a CAGR of 6.5 percent from 6.6 million units in 2013 to 9.1 million units in 2018. Cellular M2M technology enables devices such as POS terminals and ATMs to be used at new locations where fixed line connectivity is unavailable or impractical. The technology has a more transformational effect on markets such as vending and parking, where machine operators need to reorganize their operations in order to benefit from the availability of real-time information.

The installed base of connected vending machines in North America reached 0.45 million units at the end of 2013, whereas the corresponding figure for EU27+2 was 0.11 million units. The market is still in an early stage as penetration rates for North America and Europe are at 7.4 percent and 2.9 percent respectively. However, vending is also one of the fastest growing segments for connectivity solutions in the retail industry, driven by demand for cashless payment and vending telemetry solutions. The North American market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 20.7 percent between 2013 and 2018, reaching 1.14 million connected vending machines at the end of the period. Similarly, the European market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 29.5 percent to reach 0.4 million connections by 2018.

The parking industry has been one of the earliest adopters of M2M communication technology and today approximately 50 percent of the world's 460,000 multi-space meters are connected, primarily to cellular networks. This penetration rate will continue to increase steadily throughout the foreseeable future, as nearly all new multi-space meter deployments have connectivity as a requirement. Connectivity has in contrast to this only recently become an optional feature in single-space meters and today only 4 percent of the single-space meters in the world are connected. However, connected single-space meters have recently had a breakthrough in the North American market, where mixed deployments that comprise both single-space and multi-space meters are becoming common. The share of single-space meters that incorporate connectivity is as a result now increasing rapidly and expected to reach 17 percent by 2018.

Cellular connectivity has become a very popular option for POS terminals and was incorporated in around one third of the devices shipped in 2013. The wireless technology has an important role in facilitating the global adoption of electronic payments, as it enables the rollout of POS terminals to many new market segments as well as regions where the fixed line telecommunications infrastructure is less developed. Berg Insight forecasts that the installed base of cellular POS terminals will grow at a CAGR of 12.2 percent between 2013 and 2018 to reach 29.1 million units worldwide in 2018, driven especially by growth in emerging markets. Berg Insight estimates that 27 percent of the ATMs in North America and 5–10 percent of the ATMs in Europe were connected to cellular networks in 2013. Wireless M2M is especially relevant for ATMs installed at off-site locations as it offers greater flexibility, shorter deployment times and competitive connectivity fees compared to fixed line alternatives. The number of wirelessly connected ATMs in North America is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 6.0 percent to reach 0.17 million units by 2018. The number of wirelessly connected ATMs in Europe is similarly projected to grow at a CAGR of 10.0 percent to reach 0.07 million units in 2018.

Cellular connectivity is incorporated in an estimated 0.1 million fare collection devices worldwide today, such as on-board ticket vending machines, stationary vending machines and handheld ticket sales terminals. Berg Insight anticipates that the market potential for cellular connectivity in public transport will expand as account-based fare collection systems gain ground and increase the need for real-time communication. However, the number of fare collection devices that incorporate cellular connectivity is likely to remain relatively modest, as many fare collection devices can share a communication line with other equipment.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
