PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WebNMS, a leading provider of multi-vendor network management and IoT solutions, today announced four emerging Internet of Things initiatives that will shape 2015, saying the coming year will witness a change in the way IoT is implemented by integrating diverse connected devices to create complex applications. Topping the list is the need for increased energy efficiency, asset performance, analytics, and security management — all factors that will drive Internet of Things adoption by businesses and enterprises in 2015.
WebNMS will roll out its initiatives at ITEXPO Miami, being held January 27-30, 2015, at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The company is exhibiting in booth 124 at the M2M Pavilion.
“With IoT expected to connect around 28 billion devices by 2020, WebNMS is poised to address the market needs by offering a highly scalable IoT platform that enables rapid development of custom IoT applications across a wide range of industries,” said Prabhu Ramachandran, director of Zoho Corporation’s WebNMS. “Also, the growing number of smartphone users, falling sensor costs and the expanding broadband networks will act as catalysts for its expansion.”
WebNMS IoT Initiatives for 2015
Thrive on Energy Efficiency
One of the major driving forces behind IoT adoption is efficiency gains. IoT contributes to creating a sustainable economy by reducing carbon footprint, improving energy efficiency and conserving on energy bills.
WebNMS’ IoT applications like Power Grid Monitoring, Solar Farm Manager and Windmill Manager show the growing relevance of IoT in the energy infrastructure of a country. Apart from the real-time data, WebNMS provides detailed visibility of energy usage patterns, power hungry devices and drills down to even identify issues like energy loss and energy wastage due to pilferage. Achieving sustainability goals will drive businesses to opt for IoT.
Data Traffic and Intelligence
With sensors pouring in data from tens of thousands of connected devices, IoT opens new revenue streams. For instance, machine data on driving behavior from connected cars creates new revenue via pay-as-you-drive insurance. Managed service providers can offer new bundled services for remote monitoring.
In the coming years, IT leaders will focus on developing new revenue models or value-added services to realize game-changing opportunities from IoT. Big data and analytics tools will boost technology spending in 2015.
Evolving Smart City Market
Smart City creates a connected ecosystem where multiple sectors (ranging from healthcare to transportation, utilities, etc.) unite and exchange information, fostering economic growth and a sustainable lifestyle. With governments’ initiatives on infrastructure development across the world, technology providers, data center operators and other stakeholders will focus on creating a roadmap to support the complex integration and massive data traffic that would be generated from the smart city. WebNMS currently offers Road Infrastructure Manager, Power Grid Monitoring and Smart Home targeted at the smart city segment. WebNMS’ highly customizable IoT application platform, with its comprehensive set of development tools, enables building a wide range of IoT solutions.
Powering Security Through the Internet of Things
Another important aspect recognized by WebNMS is the need for improved security. IoT technologies can make businesses more secure with centralized management and control of remote devices, theft monitoring, alert notifications, lighting and HVAC controls, and fire and smoke detection.
