IoT World Leader

Internet of Things World Leader of the Year

I’m honored to represent Ericsson as a finalist for the Internet of Things World “Leader of the Year” Award.

My colleagues and I are working hard to add the wireless network capacity, performance and low latency needed to make IoT broadly successful by driving 5G deployments combined with the global connection management needed to take the friction out of bootstrapping smart, connected devices.

At the same time I’m personally championing the use of Connected Intelligence to drive sustainability, fight climate change and help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through The Moab Foundation.

I’m privileged to be nominated with such an amazing group of IoT visionaries and I’d really appreciate your vote at the link below: https://get.knect365.com/iot-world-awards/leader-2020-award-voting/solution-providers/

Ericsson Launches New IoT Center of Excellence

Ericsson has appointed Rob Tiffany to lead the company’s new Internet of Things “Center of Excellence” in North America.

Tiffany started yesterday and reports to Ericsson’s Shannon Lucas, head of global customer unit emerging business for North America. Lucas reports to Niklas Heuveldop, who is Ericsson’s chief executive for the North American market.

As detailed by an Ericsson representative, the company’s new IoT “center of excellence” will “bridge the divide between customer needs and market readiness by co-creating new solutions with service providers, industrials and technology companies. The CoE is a blend of technology and business model innovation focused on cultivating a strong ecosystem of partners who move at speed.”

The news is noteworthy considering it represents a further investment by Ericsson into the IoT sector. In its own mobility report (PDF), Ericsson predicted the number of cellular IoT connections will reach 4.1 billion in 2024—increasing at an annual growth rate of 27%. “Massive IoT cellular technologies such as NB-IoT and Cat-M1 are taking off and driving growth in the number of cellular IoT connections worldwide,” the firm wrote. “Of the 4.1 billion cellular IoT connections forecast for 2024, North East Asia is anticipated to account for 2.7 billion—a figure reflecting both the ambitions and size of the cellular IoT market in this region.”

Added Ericsson CEO Börje Ekholm in the company’s latest quarterly report: “We continue to invest in strategic future growth areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) and saw increasing momentum with one important customer win with our connectivity platform solutions in the quarter. As parts of the portfolio in Emerging Business are in an early phase, sales are so far limited.”

Ericsson, of course, is one of the world’s largest wireless network equipment suppliers, and in the U.S. the company is increasing its lead over Nokia in the equipment market, according to new figures from Dell’Oro Group. The research firm’s figures cover the market for radio access network equipment.

M2M Influencer

Rob Tiffany Named a Top 100 M2M Influencer

In Onalytica’s 2016 analysis and ranking of individuals and brands in the Machine to Machine space, Rob was ranked a top 100 #M2M influencer. #IoT

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, Machine to Machine (M2M) refers to the direct communication between devices using a variety of communications channels, including wired and wireless. Many of you will think this is the same or similar to the Internet of Things and you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. I started my career in the M2M space connecting unintelligent vending machines to primitive wireless networks to derive value from remotely monitoring them. Needless to say, a lot has changed since then.

Analytic M2M

In modern terms, traditional M2M is often expressed as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industrie 4.0. Imagine the value to be derived from connecting, analyzing and acting on data from industries such as healthcare, automotive, oil and gas, agriculture, government, smart cities, manufacturing, and public utilities. It’s an exciting space to be in and it’s rapidly transforming our world.
