Australia/New Zealand Telecommunications
and the Internet of Things

The communications service provider (CSP) market continues its transformation into the industry underpinning the digital, sharing and interconnected economy. Driven by ongoing innovations and technological developments, the industry struggles to keep pace with these rapid changes. With communications infrastructure becoming a utility under increasing regulatory pressure, the landscape also changes as previously separate industry sectors merge to create offerings competing with those of the CSP.

This is also where IoT becomes important – linking sensor, devices and other elements to CSP networks, opening the way to smart cities and communities, smart grids, smart farms, smart factories plus smart homes and buildings. Merged with the data analytics needed to operate our increasingly complex society, these solutions enable the data driven economy.

These developments are not without risks. As societies and economies become more dependent on ICT solutions, cybercrime and cyberwar threaten the fabric of daily life. Addressing these challenges requires access to a constant source of relevant, timely and data backed perspective on the industry across Australia and New Zealand. To overcome the challenges born out of rapidly evolving enterprise and consumer demands coupled with thinning margins from traditional telco services, the CSPs must transform their business models, product and service offerings, and engagement strategies.

In the face of these challenges, IDC has created 3 report series to inform and equip CSPs to successfully transform their business:

Rounding out the transformation of CSPs, IDC's Asia/Pacific Internet of Things Ecosystem and Trends service examines the rapidly evolving Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and industry, including the evolution from machine-to-machine (M2M) to IoT solutions in Asia/Pacific. In addition, IDC reviews the impact IoT has on various industry vertical, including manufacturing and healthcare, and the new business models that will emerge – the key topic areas that are growing in importance in Asia, including Smart Cities and consumer wearables. The Asia/Pacific Internet of Things Ecosystem and Trends target audience is vendors across the IoT ecosystem, including device/module manufacturers, service providers, application developers, security vendors, analytics vendors, and systems integrators.
