According to Juniper Research, Vodafone Business is the leading service provider in the IoT roaming space.

The research giant assesses vendors based on a number of key indicators which include: capacity and capability, solution positioning, size of operations, financial performance, and product sophistication.

Here are Juniper’s top six IoT roaming vendors:

  1. Vodafone Business
  2. Tata Communications
  3. TNS
  4. BICS
  5. Syniverse
  6. iBasis

“Vodafone Business is delighted to have been recognised as the leading IoT roaming vendor in Juniper Research’s Competitor Leaderboard,” said Phil Skipper, Head of IoT Strategy and Development for Vodafone Business.

“Our IoT platform, which delivers managed IoT connectivity, device management and application development, enables our roaming partners to actively participate in and monetise the global opportunity for IoT connectivity.”

Juniper was impressed by Vodafone Business’ scalable IoT product offering which supports device management, LPWA (Low Power Wide Access) network services, and mobile private networks.

Vodafone Business was also commended for its ‘Application-as-a-Service’ model which Juniper believes will drive IoT roaming service adoption amongst SMEs by lowering the barriers to entry.

By 2027, Juniper forecasts global IoT roaming connections will increase to 1.8 billion from 300 million in 2022—representing 500 percent growth.
