Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE Named the Leading Industrial IoT Networking Solutions Vendors
Leaders have taken a holistic, forward-looking view of IIoT networking solutions to advance operational intelligence in heavy industry
A new Leaderboard report from Guidehouse Insights examines the strategy and execution of 17 industrial IoT (IIoT) networking solutions vendors, with Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE ranked as the leading market players.
The IIoT is transforming the way heavy industry works, creating more efficient, safe, and profitable operations in environments from factory floors and power plants to remote oil & gas (O&G) production sites and mines. New communications protocols, particularly for wireless connectivity, are making IIoT a more economic choice and digitalization is an accelerating trend in heavy industry. According to a new Leaderboard report from Guidehouse Insights, Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE are the leading providers of industrial IoT networking solutions.
“These market players have taken a holistic, forward-looking view of IIoT networking solutions, integrating a range of emerging and evolving wireless networking in addition to cloud-based offerings and analytics overlays targeted at heavy industry,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “These companies have also differentiated themselves from the competition through widespread IIoT project experience across multiple verticals and internal or partner-provided applications such as analytics for provision of end-to-end solutions.”
Several vendors trail these leaders with solid foundations for growth and long-term success. These contenders are well-positioned to become leaders but have not yet fully executed their product launches. To succeed, they will need to differentiate themselves with unique value add applications to secure greater demand and higher market penetration.
