IoT is the most significant growth factor in the mobile world: 1 out of 5 IoT connections is expected to be mobile by 2024. Mobile IoT will be a big market in its own right. However, like all businesses it will not grow by itself, it needs the support of the entire ecosystem to create value and avoid pitfalls. Key participants of the value chain need to work together and build the future businesses of Mobile IoT: from networks to devices, from solutions to operators.
