Automated real-time analytics, a game changer for telecos growth

It is now obvious that, Telcos need to pursue a range of digital opportunities to compensate the decline in the traditional service revenue. Data analysis is a solid means for ongoing business enablement and optimization. 
Combining insights across service and network performance aligned with telco business targets is the key factor for success. Telcos are starting to recognize that fully automated real-time analytics can accelerate, optimize, and potentially even replace some manual operations.

Here is how data from users, services, networks, locations, and management sources could be monetized

I can recall that, as part of digital transformation, Big Data will become a revenue source for telcos, which are beginning to prepare to take advantage of the business opportunities that it offers
In effect, data from users, services, networks, locations, and management sources could be monetized through product promotion, targeted advertisement, up-sales, quality of experience (QoE), and network optimization.

Platooning technology within vehicle in our ever-connected era

In have a pleasure to recall that, in vehicle platooning, multiple cars, buses, and trucks travel at an aerodynamically efficient distance and drive cooperatively by maintaining the distance at high speeds. For this purpose, the platooning system uses advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) installed in the vehicles along with high-end explicit platooning algorithms involving sensor fusion of radar, LiDAR, and cameras. Wireless connectivity enables communications among vehicle fleets. 

The vehicles in the platoon automatically synchronize speed and braking actions, thereby resulting in higher fuel efficiency for all vehicles in the platoon. 

It is also indispensable to recall that, in platooning technology, sensors play a critical role in maintaining distances between moving vehicles and to detect road conditions and driving scenarios.

Wrist-worn enterprise devices Vs the body-worn enterprise devices

It is clear that, the most common form of wrist-worn enterprise devices is wearable scanners, which are projected to comprise 73% of devices shipped in this segment by 2021. 

One can also observe that, the body-worn enterprise wearable market, however, will become much more diverse as awareness surrounding the benefits of devices like head-mounted displays continues to increase. 

For those who are unfamiliar, these devices in particular allow workers to stay connected and access systems’ information in a hands-free manner.

A shift from wrist-worn devices to body- and head-worn wearables

A set of studies, actionable data, projections, and findings converge on the fact that, the enterprise wearable market is experiencing a shift from wrist-worn devices to body- and head-worn wearables.

For instance, ABI Research forecasts enterprise wearable shipments will grow from 30 million shipments in 2016 to nearly 147 million in 2021 with wrist-worn wearable shipments projected to triple by 2021 to reach 30 million

One can also expect that, Body-worn devices will surge from 20 million to more than 116 million over the same period.
