The telecommunications industry is rapidly evolving to a world in which objects (devices, equipment, and other assets) are autonomously communicating, transacting, signaling, etc. Arguably this so-called Internet of Things (IoT) market will overtake human communications rapidly as there are vastly more objects in the world than humans, they can communicate much faster, much more frequently, and for many more reasons than humans.
This report provides an evaluation of leading companies and associated solutions within IoT marketplace. Companies included in this study include ARM, Broadcom, Cisco, Freescale, Google, Intel, McAfee, Oracle, PTC, Qualcomm, Samsung, SAP, TE Connectivity, and Texas Instruments.

- Companies providing the fundamental building blocks and support infrastructure for IoT are positioned to capitalize the most in the early days of IoT. This group of companies consists of component (hardware, software, and middleware) as well as support solutions (security, privacy, interoperability, and controls).
- There will be many companies/solutions that will emerge in the years 2014 – 2020, which are prior to a large inflection point for IoT, and also represent the formative years for the IoT ecosystem to develop functionality necessary to sustain itself and for sufficient market verticals to adopt automated business practices and related service offerings.
- We see consolidation occurring, both early and late, within the IoT lifecycle and ecosystem. Some of the early players fulfilling critical roles such as Identity Management, will be acquired by much bigger companies very early in the introduction stage.
- The IoT mediation capability is key to the sustainable growth of IoT services as it provides critical functions such as privacy, security, access control, preference control, and more.
