The Internet of Things (IoT) has an ever-evolving definition. Each week, a different company hypes a different definition that includes pieces of the market and ignores others. So, how does Compass Intelligence, a leading provider of Telecom market information, define this space? Take the scenario of a city. There are various public and private elements that add up to a city: homes, commercial buildings, government buildings, factories & industrial, infrastructure, transportation, government services, and the list goes on. Each of these elements has “things.” A commercial building has access control, video surveillance, HVAC, offices, elevators, parking structures, sprinklers, energy management, demand response… and the list continues on. The same goes for each of the elements listed above that add to a city.
