The United Kingdom is home to rapidly developing community of companies and commercializing IOT component technologies, products and services which are already having impact on business, homes and with individuals lives.
Product Overview: The revolution of Internet has transformed the way humans search, consume and share information by connecting computers all around the world. Similarly, the Internet of Things connects physical devices (not just smartphones, laptops & tablets) using sensors and data to augment the way people live, work, entertain, travel, and even government organizations & businesses interact. A typical IoT platform or application has many layers that includes, data management, devices and things security and communication protocols, network communication and computing infrastructure and performance management software.
Global U.K IOT Market: Overview
U.K IoT and M2M Communication market is estimated to grow from to USD79.18 billion by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 19.9% from 2014 – 2019. The U.K IoT and M2M communication market is emerging because of adaptation by industrial automated manufacturing process, enable new and efficient way to interact or supervise in production plants.
Internet of Things is described as network of networks and it is a central part of future internet and could be defined as U.K network infrastructure with self-configuring capabilities based on interoperable and standard communication protocols. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication enables machines to communicate directly with one another, using various types of fixed and wireless networks.
In U.K the market for Smart automobile is emerging that is the major reason for the growth of IoT and M2M market because the M2M connectivity provides in-cars infotainment devices which include online music, Internet browsing, navigation and remote vehicle diagnostic that gives information about the car’s safety and security along with its performance to the driver.
Technology evolution and development
There has been significant movement in the available technology for connecting IoT systems and a number of early deployment in the UK and overseas. Developments in technology have been in both the cellular space and with new technologies, primarily operating in license exempt spectrum, that offer new operators or organizations the chance to build an independent IoT network. In current scenario IoT products often use a local area connection to a hub before then connecting to the wider world through the use of cellular, Wi-Fi or fixed network technology. An example of this is the Google Nest thermostat, which acts as a hub between connected home devices and the home Wi-Fi network, allowing data to ingress and egress via the home’s fixed broadband connection. Most of today’s wearable and connected consumer devices use a Bluetooth, WiFi or similar connection from the device to the owner’s smartphone, to provide a connection to the broader internet and applications that provide appropriate user interfaces.
Health & Social Care IOT
With a rapidly cost pressure, aging population, on the NHS and the local government social care budgets, there is a growing requirement for technology, which can help fill the gaps left by growing demand, reduced availability of resources and structural reform. The IoT is being used effectively by a number of businesses in the health and social care sector, including companies developing smart medical diagnostic and treatment devices, platforms and services, and those with more of a focus on the care of elderly, frail or vulnerable people. In the former category are companies such as Healthcare, who make an ultra-low-power, wearable wireless system for monitoring patients vital signs in a hospital. Care specialists include Canary Care5 and eFridgeMagnet, who produce a simple device that can alert concerned family and friends via SMS when an elderly or vulnerable person first opens their fridge in the morning. Some companies address both parts of this sector.
