The IoT Service Provider Contract Tracker is an Excel spreadsheet that logs, classifies, and details over 700 publicly announced IoT service deployments delivered by communications service providers to enterprises. The information ranges from 2009, to the end of the last complete quarter prior to publication (i.e., 1Q17).


  • The number of IoT service deployments by communications companies is increasing every quarter, a sure sign they are gaining credibility and trust in IoT. This is also validation of the fundamental utility of connectivity as a critical platform for building IoT value.
