Telecommunications executives meeting in Barcelona this month for the Mobile World Congress will be discussing, among many topics, the Internet of Things, and enabling IoT platforms.
It is clear that businesses are discovering the value of the application of IoT to solve real business problems. A 2016 Barometer report by Vodafone highlights the increasing adoption of IoT. Some of the statistics they shared included:
- 76% of businesses say that IoT will be “critical” to their success, and adopters allocate more budget to IoT than to cloud or analytics.
- 37% of adopters say they run their entire business on IoT, and 48% say they’re using IoT to support large-scale business transformation.
- 63% say they’ve seen “significant” return on investment, and on average they measure a 20% improvement in metrics like revenue, cost, downtime and utilisation.
- More than 90% of adopters say they already integrate IoT data with cloud, mobile, analytics and ERP.
With the increasing use of IoT by businesses, supporting the increasing load of sensors, devices, monitors, and other tools with a high level of reliability will become critically important.
Valid8 is proud to be an exhibitor at the Mobile World Congress. One of the topics we will be discussing at our exhibition is the Valid8 Internet of Things (IoT) Load Tester. The technology provides an all-in-one, cost-effective solution for emulating and testing IoT devices. It is a fully automatable solution that addresses the unique challenges brought by IoT testing by supporting a wide range of protocols, industries, and manufacturers.
The technology is able to simulate a vast array of IoT connected devices, and supports protocols including CoAP, MQTT, HTTP REST, XMPP, and custom protocols over 4G, ethernet and Wifi.
The Valid8.com booth is located at Hall 1, Stand 1D50. We encourage visitors to the Mobile World Congress to stop at our booth to learn more about the importance of feature conformance, and load testing to telecommunications.
