Research and Markets: Global Indoor Location Positioning Technology Report 2014: Research, Solutions & Trends

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mlmdrl/indoor_location) has announced the addition of the "Indoor Location Positioning Technology: Research, Solutions & Trends" report to their offering.

In December, 2011, the author released our first comprehensive report on indoor location positioning technology, predicting that indoor location technologies were going to revolutionize the mobile industry. Our subsequent reports have tracked the growth and ongoing R&D by major companies and start-ups.

Now, in our 417-page fully-updated report, we see the technology advances that have reached market and grabbed the spotlight.

Since our previous report:

  • Over 50 new start-up companies have launched, and several start-ups have been acquired
  • Hardware approaches to indoor location have demonstrated centimeter-level accuracy
  • Chips implementing indoor location in hardware have reached market
  • Many major companies previously doing quiet research have launched products
  • Proximity sensing has received huge market attention Indoor location applications have launched in malls, stores, and other sites worldwide and much more

In this fully revised and updated 417-page report, the author gives an up-to-date analysis and comprehensive overview of indoor location positioning R&D. Read about the research activity of all the major mobile companies - Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Apple, Nokia, RIM, Sony Mobile, Motorola & others - the major chip and network makers - Qualcomm, Broadcom, STMicroElectronics, CSR, Cisco, Aruba & others - other major technology vendors, and over one hundred start-up companies that are actively bringing indoor location services to market.

This updated report also explains the newest trends in the industry. What is the difference between proximity sensing and location positioning? Why are companies integrating multiple methods of indoor positioning instead of focusing on one? Why are many companies moving to network-centric approaches? What types of analysis are being done of user movement around a site? And perhaps most importantly, how are companies improving the accuracy of indoor positioning?

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

The demand for organizations to expand their infrastructure to multiple IT environments like the cloud, on-premise, mobile, bring your own device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. As this hybrid infrastructure increases, the challenge to monitor the security of these systems increases in volume and complexity. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty, Chief Security Evangelist at Alert Logic, will show how properly configured and managed security architecture can...
The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Klein, CEO and Co-founder of Rachio, will discuss next generation communities that are using IoT to create more sustainable, intelligent communities.

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
