An ABI research claims that 2018 will be a particularly challenging year for IoT. Researchers anticipate that growing pains will make it extremely difficult for network planners and system integrators to deal with IoT devices, systems, and the massive data they collect.
The research added that despite the best intentions and efforts, many first generation IoT solutions will encounter many challenges. Researchers examined and analysed the growth factors driving IoT data traffic per node, including bandwidth requirements in an effort to provide insights into likely new business opportunities and services.
Commenting on the content of the new report, Kevin McDermott, Principal Analyst at ABI Research said, IoT system design needs to consider multiple factors around the critical communication links including messaging size, frequency, and data types. However, by anticipating the detailed use case scenarios including data bandwidth growth, the uncertainty between design expectations and real-world experiences can be minimised".
One of the greatest challenges that key players are expected to face is the fact that every solution might be different from one another and may require different approaches to solve specific bandwidth and network latency problems.
