IoT, Big Data Mean Big Opportunities for Telcos

The most successful companies in this evolving landscape are those that quickly adapt

Somewhere in the United States at the moment, there’s a parent on her way to work. She just dropped her daughter off at school, and, for some reason, she suddenly remembered she left her garage door open. Or she didn’t set her thermostat for a day of an empty house. As recently as a couple of years ago, this situation would have meant turning around, adding 40 minutes to her commute just to flip a switch. The Internet of Things (IoT) means this woman can grab her smartphone, open an app and tell her garage door to close.
