Juniper Research’s Competitor Leaderboard Rankings for IoT Vendors
The research firm ranked Vodafone Business at the top, followed by Tata Communications at the second. At the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth positions were TNS, BICS, Syniverse, and iBasis.
Vodafone Business has built a scalable IoT product offering which can support device management, mobile private networks, and LPWA (Low Power Wide Access). The research firm further said that it commends Vodafone Business’s ‘Application-as-a-Service) model which will drive IoT roaming service adoption amongst the SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) by lowering the barriers to entry. For Indians, it would be great to see Tata Communications at the second rank on the list.
