Thanksgiving is the time of year where we reflect on the accomplishments of the prior year and to be thankful for all that we have — both personally and professionally. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things professionally.
If there is one slice of the business world that should be very thankful this year, it’s the Internet of Things (IoT) space. The addition of sensors almost everywhere to collect data and to communicate status has created huge demand for IoT and wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions. For those in the IoT and wireless M2M spaces, business is booming and we appear to be in the early phases of a major market shift.
On a Personal Note
I’m thankful for the tremendous progress that FreeWave has made over the last 12 months in product development. We brought WaveContact to market in early 2015 and we are getting great traction with channels and customers now. We have two other new products in development and are on the cusp of bringing them to General Availability, as well. We are delivering more new products now than we have in many years at FreeWave. The IoT world is craving the solutions that we are developing, and we have customers literally queueing up in line to beta test our new products. I’m thankful for our new engineering and product management leadership for their vision, their sense of urgency and their commitment to excellence.
One of the other things that I’m thankful for is the increased market focus on IoT and wireless M2M communications. There are more applications coming forward every day, and I’m thankful that FreeWave has the solutions and expertise to help customers with their increased desire to communicate between more and different devices even more frequently than ever before. I’m thankful that FreeWave is so well positioned to take advantage of this market inflection point and to be a thought leader in the industry.
Finally, I’m thankful for our customers, our channel partners and our ecosystem partners, and our employees. Every single day, we get the feedback and the effort from them that we need to continue to evolve and deliver exciting new solutions. There has never been a better time to be a leader in IoT and M2M communications than right now. And, thankfully, that’s exactly what FreeWave is — a leader in IoT and wireless M2M communications.
Have a happy, safe and relaxing Thanksgiving. Thanks for reading…
