Nigel Eastwood: Internet of Things (IoT) to accelerate in 2016

As we ring in the New Year, it is heartening to note that telecom continues to be a growing, thriving ecosystem, expanding across a range of technology, product and services companies. I am a firm believer in the vast range of growth opportunities available across all telecommunications sub-sectors.

The year 2015 was a big year for mobile as mobile traffic finally overtook desktop traffic in at least 10 different countries. 2016 is predicted to be even more impressive with in India the number of internet connections is expected to further increase to 462 million by June next year as more people come online, especially through their mobile device according to a recent report by industry body IAMAI. Growth overall also will be driven by the consumer friendly devices which have become an integral part of our daily lives.
