The Number of Mobile Connected Devices is Expected to Increase by 100 Percent to Nearly 12 Billion by 2020; resulting in a market opportunity of $1.2 Trillion. Cross-Industry collaboration is essential to deliver the Connected Life.
The GSMA’s vision of a future “Connected Life”, describes a world where consumers and businesses enjoy rich new services across many different devices securely connected to the internet via ubiquitous Mobile Broadband networks. The “Connected Life” will be underpinned by seamless and pervasive connectivity between people and processes, enabling a wealth of valuable context-aware services to be delivered immediately and automatically. Individuals will enjoy personalised experiences whenever, wherever and for whatever they are required.
The “Connected Life” will see technology continually working with you and around you, significantly reducing the friction in interactions with other people and businesses.
In summary, the spread of Mobile Broadband networks, the emergence of new mobile device categories and the expansion of mobile service propositions is establishing an “Internet of things”. Within the next decade, billions of new devices will be connected to mobile networks, providing consumers and businesses with an array of applications, services and experiences. This, we believe, will really usher in the “Connected Life” in which we are always connected, anywhere, and at any time.
