  • “Over the five years of this report we have seen the number of companies that have adopted IoT double, and projects have grown from small pilots to global rollouts of tens of thousands of connected devices,” said Vodafone IoT director Erik Brenneis.
  • Once again, the study reflected trends first highlighted in the 2015 report, which said that organisations that started to use IoT tended to do more of it once they had established its value – this year, 84% agreed that their adoption and use of IoT solutions had grown in the…

Vodafone’s fifth annual look at the IoT market reveals that the percentage of companies with more than 50,000 connected devices has effectively doubled in the past year

The proportion of enterprises and public sector organisations rolling out large scale internet of things (IoT) projects with more than 50,000 connected devices has doubled in the past year, from 3% to 6% of all organisations engaging with the IoT, according to a state-of-the-market report produced for mobile network operator Vodafone.

This is the fifth year Vodafone has published its IoT barometer report. This year’s study, which was conducted by Circle Research, surveyed a sample of 1,278 IT buyers from 13 countries in both private and public sector organisations.
