Smart Home, Building City Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Applications
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications growth is expected to accelerate, particularly in certain industry verticals, and especially due to the anticipated Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. One of the key areas of growth for M2M and IoT falls within the area of smart homes, smart buildings including offices and industrial, and smart cities. One of the original definitions of a “smart home” is a residence that has highly advanced automatic systems for lighting, temperature control, multi-media, security, window and door operations, and many other functions. With the expansion of broadband communications and M2M/IoT, intelligence in the home is taking on a whole new meaning as various connected home applications are transforming entertainment, information, health and general

Mobile Marketing and Wireless Advertising: Strategies for Carriers
People often categorize "mobile marketing" within a large bucket of things that include mobile customer relationship management, mobile search, mobile entertainment and personalization, mobile couponing, and mobile advertising. Mobile advertising will steadily morph to other devices, including tablet devices, network computers, e-readers, and cloud computers. Testing of ads for compatibility on devices other than phones is highly recommended before committing to purchase an ad. No longer a niche value-added service (VAS), mobile marketing and advertising is now a mainstream service offering. As is the case with many VAS applications, there is an interdependency between the mobile operator and various third parties including media companies, advertisers, portals, content providers,

Next Generation Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Wireless: Developing Market Opportunities for P2P Direct Applications and Services
Standardization is on the horizon for LTE to operate in a peer-to-peer mode known as LTE Direct (LTE-D) that involves discovery and a mode of operation involving the so-called “ambient awareness”. This is expected to be a novelty at first but quickly evolve into a new ecosystem that is at once complementary and competitive to the current cellular ecosystem. There are a number of additional technologies that may also be deployed that all provide the ability for devices to “discover” one another, although over different distances ranging from centimeters (Near Field Communications), meters (Bluetooth), 10s of meters (Wi-Fi), and some that vary (beacon technologies). This research addresses the technology, companies, solutions, and market opportunities involving

Big Data in Extraction and Natural Resource Industries: Mining, Water, Timber, Oil and Gas 2014 - 2019
Big Data and natural resources are made for each other and the natural resources industry is positioning itself to put this wealth of information to better use. Big Data is a comparatively untapped asset that organizations in this vertical can exploit once they adopt a shift of mindset and apply the right methods and processes. In the natural resource industry, Big Data can come from conventional sources, which are equipment monitoring and maintenance records. Data from these sources is generally captured and used as required, but until now, it was not always preserved for long-term use. With the proper infrastructure and tools, natural resources organizations can gain measurable value from all of these data sources. As the quantity of data, the quantity of sources, and the regularity of
