Realizing Value from Next-Generation Wireless – Gartner

“Eighteen billion edge/IoT devices are already looking to connect to enterprise infrastructure; wireless value realization is about capturing that opportunity and extending it to new services and innovation,” says Tim Zimmerman, Gartner VP Analyst. 

Gartner expects that by 2025, 50% of enterprise wireless endpoints will use networking services that deliver additional capabilities beyond communication, which will be up from less than 15%.

“For example,” says Zimmerman, “as wireless will not only be a multitechnology medium, it can also be used to sense the environment, provide power where it did not exist and find assets as well as locate people in distress. Wireless can monitor workers to provide a safer environment or optimize the movement of critical assets.”
