European IoT Operator Profiles—Part 1

European IoT Operator Profiles—Part 1

Telecom operators are one of the most important participants in the Internet of Things (IoT) value chain, as they are evolving themselves to become 'key enablers' by acting as an interface between enterprise customers and IoT hardware, software, and platform vendors. As connectivity remains a low-value component of the IoT value chain, telecom operators’ profitability depends on their ability to deliver innovative and vertical-specific end-to-end solutions. In that regard, IoT represents a significant opportunity for these operators in partnership with the value chain providers. This research service is a compilation of the critical developments in the IoT landscape, key European telecom operators’ product offerings, IoT positioning, key differentiators, go-to-market strategy, and their relationship with other value chain participants.
