Trends in this segment
Innovation shifts from the cloud to the edge
The “center of gravity” in the enterprise will be driven by new sensing devices, edge computing capabilities and distributed intelligence
Sensor and instrument architecture impacts
Connectivity with a “sensor network fabric” in any location. This includes human input and machine-to-machine communications available anytime, anywhere. Combined with situational awareness, this provides real-time decision support as part of an integrated, ubiquitous service delivery mode.
“Always-available” integrated services environment
Higher bandwidth, reliable connectivity anywhere, including “on-the-move,” are key to many business models. Networks that are “out-of-the-box” and enabled “as-a-service” become the norm.
