This white paper reveals that 85% of companies have made IoT a key focus area over the last 12 months, but have prioritized Consumer and Home, Transportation and Energy. When using unlicensed technology within IoT, monetization will be driven by non-traditional approaches, such as big data and new advertising models.
This paper also analyzes the use of Passpoint/Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) based roaming to facilitate the adoption of IoT services using unlicensed based radio technologies. WBA explores the evolution of identities for IoT-centric devices, moving up the stack to an association with applications and embedded identifiers.
