Wiliot at Tech Blick: Ambient IoT – Scaling from billions to trillions, saving supply chains and the planet
With ambient IoT standards emerging from IEEE and 3GPP and adoption of Bluetooth based ambient IoT rapidly scaling from hundreds of millions to billions, it’s important to understand this new segment of the Internet of Things. The original vision of a pervasive IoT was limited by low cost tags that required expensive infrastructure (RFID), or high cost tags with low cost infrastructure (cellular and LP WAN). Ambient IoT is on a trajectory to scale to trillions of connected things by having low-cost tags and low or even no cost infrastructure. In this talk we review the emerging standards, architecture, and applications for ambient IoT.
Ambient IoT devices are forecast to scale from millions to billions in 2026. This growth is riding on Bluetooth Low Energy as the transport.
Learn about the progress towards adding ambient IoT to Release 19 and the parallel ambient IoT standardization activity with IEEE. While some of the biggest retailers and postal carriers are deploying ambient IoT now, the true impact will change the way products are made, distributed, sold, used, reused, and recycled.
The energy and excitement behind 6G is palpable. While a lot has yet to be decided, it has been agreed that Ambient IoT will be part of 6G. Tune into the recording of our MWC session where our experts provided their perspectives on the fundamentals of the technology, and the vast market and revenue opportunities for 6G and Ambient IoT.
