-
1.5%

Over the next 20 years it could raise
avg. incomes by an impressive 25
-
40%

The Industrial Internet
could add
$10
-
15
trillion to
global GDP over the same
horizon


Equivalent to an
economy of the USA

What is the opportunity? According to GE = $10 Trillion

Is this to be the rise of the machines...?



Machines are different to humans ... In some cases VERY
different ...

Why make them use the same networks as us?

... There will be many, many more of ‘them’ than us


Machines communicate differently to humans

... So what are the differences?

... They don't have much to ‘say’


... Most will communicate on a scheduled basis

Or put another way ...

Why should we share our networks with ‘them?’


Our connected future will start with machines like these ...

What will these machines look like?

Why now for machines and not before?


We are only now beginning to see the true value in data and the
applications that use data


ask Google, Apple or the millionaire
bedroom developer community



We have seen how an established eco
-
system for developers has
changed smart phone App development and business models



The same opportunity exists for IoT/M2M



But we must tackle the barriers to M2M growth


Complexity
-

Coverage
-

Current consumption
-

Capacity


Cost



Required elements are


Ubiquitous low cost networks


Cloud processing


New business models


Partnerships & co
-
operation

The
Internet of Things
time line ...


This will have 3 distinct phases ...



Phase 1
-

Prove the business case for M2M


Discover value of data not just opportunities


Show what networks can do



Phase 2
-

Build the eco
-
system


show the value


Provide platforms at scale for developers & early adopters


Foster innovation


devices, services & business models


Partnerships are key element


No one has all the pieces of the puzzle



Phase 3
-

Enable the Internet of Things


Ubiquitous, low cost, low power chip sets


Make network & system deployments easy, cheap & demonstrate rapid
RoI


First operator networks appear

In summary


No question
-

the next industrial revolution has started


Only the scale and
timing is being debated


This will touch every humans life


It has the power for global good with little risk of
‘The Terminator
’ scenario


One of the few, truly global opportunities for economic GROWTH!



Even if you don't believe the 50 billion device number, or the

GE $10 trillion
-

M2M will be a significant driver of economic
growth for the next 20 years ...



It is happening


NOW!
