Mobile Broadband Operators Transform with Big Data and Machine Learning

On the Journey to Digital Service Providers, one can observe that, Mobile broadband operators are ramping up spend for big data and machine learning as they transform into digital service providers.
ABI Research forecasts that, mobile operators will dedicate more than $50 billion to big data and machine learning analytics through 2021. Operators are changing on how they manage the telecom business.
Machine learning-based predictive analytics are applicable to all aspects of the telecom business, so that, it is important that operators master and internalize these technologies.

Telecom big data solutions

For those who are unfamiliar, Telecom big data solutions include the commercial IT kit; the open source, Java-based Hadoop ecosystem, SQL/NoSQL data management, and orchestration platforms. 

According to ABI Research, spending on this infrastructure will exceed $7 billion in 2021. But the biggest growth and most value comes from using predictive analytics to improve telecom business performance, with machine-learning-based predictive analytics to grow at nearly 50% CAGR and reach $12 billion through 2021.

The augmented reality (AR) market in industrial industries

It is exciting to observe that, Industry players are collaborating to improve education surrounding the technology’s current capabilities, which will ensure that implementations meet organizations’ expectations in utilizing the technology.

ABI Research forecasts great momentum in near future regarding shipments expected to jump from 440,000 in 2017 to more than three million

Large multi-national companies like Boeing, DHL, GE, and Shell complete trials of the technology alongside the support of device manufacturers and platform companies.
Given the current growth trajectory, industrial AR shipments are forecast to reach 16 million by 2021.

The benefits to Augmented Reality (AR) applications in the workforce are considerable

Despite the level of misunderstanding surrounding the technology and its capabilities, it is clear that, the benefits to Augmented Reality (AR) applications in the workforce are considerable. Such applications can improve worker safety, streamline workflow processes, and significantly cut company travel costs through remote expertise implementations. 

According to ABI Research, as application and platform providers like APX Labs, Ubimax, and Vital Enterprises work alongside device manufacturers like Epson and Vuzix to deliver a wider array of solutions, AR application awareness will continue to grow through successful trials and end user education.

The primary application segments for Narrow Band-Internet of Things (IoT)

Many analysts across the world are unanimous on the fact that, tracking, as well as simple thing monitoring and control, will be the primary application segments for NB-IoT. In effect, with decreased technology requirements enabling long battery life and greater coverage, tracking of all types of products will be possible. 

ABI Research reveals that, in Turkey and Spain pre-standard Narrow Band-Internet of Things (IoT) is used to connect sensors in a car park, allowing drivers with a smartphone application to locate available parking spaces.
