Recognizing a Trend: The Future of IoT Testing

July 13, 2017

Our team is always examining the marketplace, ensuring we have a solid grasp on industry trends that might impact our clients. According to a BI Intelligence forecast, there will be 34 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, up from 10 billion in 2015, and IoT devices will account for 24 billion, while traditional computing devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, etc.) will comprise 10 billion. While developers find new and innovative methods for taking advantage of this booming market, one thing is undeniable: IoT is shaping the future of our lives.

Developing a unique, IoT concept requires engineering skills and creativity, but bringing a product to market is a completely different process. Allion USA understands client needs from both a technical and product management standpoint; IoT solutions must be compatible with legacy products, cutting-edge devices and existing networks, not to mention evolving industry standards and protocols. There are many moving parts in IoT and the ecosystem can be difficult to navigate. That’s where Allion USA comes in – at the intersection of IoT development.

We work directly with industry groups, such as the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), as an authorized test lab while our team of experts also test interoperability of connected devices with our unmatched device library, a fleet of connected cars, and real-world test houses. Our custom testing solutions draw from both areas of expertise, setting us apart from the rest of the testing industry. We also keep tabs on trends by attending events like the recent IoT World in Santa Clara, California. IoT security, business models and machine learning were just a few of the compelling topics covered by the presenters.

Events like IoT World allow our team to compare notes with like-minded IoT experts, share developments and reflect on recent progress. Although the IoT market is still fragmented, initiatives are underway for unified protocols and standards. In the meantime, Allion USA’s advanced testing solutions ensure that your product meets interoperability requirements, successfully integrates into any use case and gets to market faster.
