Low-power IoT devices to drive massive growth in cellular roaming

A new report from Juniper Research predicts explosive growth in cellular roaming among low-power Internet of Things (IoT) devices over the next five years.

Juniper’s report forecasts that the number of roaming connections from narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) and LTE-M devices will grow over five times from 90 million in 2023 to 490 million by 2028.

The massive increase will be fueled by more bilateral roaming agreements between mobile operators that are tailored to better...

Smart traffic management spending to increase 75% by 2028

A new study by Juniper Research predicts significant growth in smart traffic management spending over the next five years.

Juniper’s report forecasts that global spending on smart traffic management solutions will reach $18.6 billion by 2028, a 75 percent increase from the 2023 figure of $10.6 billion.

The growth is attributed to rising government investments in smart city initiatives, with transportation infrastructure being central to urban transformation projects....

Global 5G IoT roaming connections to hit 142M by 2027

A study conducted by Juniper Research has revealed promising growth prospects for 5G IoT roaming connections.

The report predicts a significant increase in the global number of 5G IoT roaming connections, from 15 million in 2023 to 142 million by 2027, representing over 27 percent of all 5G roaming connections in four years.

This growth will be driven by the expansion of 5G standalone deployments, particularly in West Europe, and the adoption of value-added services and...

5G IoT connections to exceed 100M by 2026
