Guidehouse Insights Names Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE the Leading Industrial IoT Networking Solutions Vendors

Leaders have taken a holistic, forward-looking view of IIoT networking solutions to advance operational intelligence in heavy industry

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Cisco–A new Leaderboard report from Guidehouse Insights examines the strategy and execution of 17 industrial IoT (IIoT) networking solutions vendors, with Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE ranked as the leading market players.

The IIoT is transforming the way heavy industry works, creating more efficient, safe, and profitable operations in environments from factory floors and power plants to remote oil & gas (O&G) production sites and mines. New communications protocols, particularly for wireless connectivity, are making IIoT a more economic choice and digitalization is an accelerating trend in heavy industry. According to a new Leaderboard report from Guidehouse Insights, Nokia, Sierra Wireless, Cisco, and HPE are the leading providers of industrial IoT networking solutions.

“These market players have taken a holistic, forward-looking view of IIoT networking solutions, integrating a range of emerging and evolving wireless networking in addition to cloud-based offerings and analytics overlays targeted at heavy industry,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “These companies have also differentiated themselves from the competition through widespread IIoT project experience across multiple verticals and internal or partner-provided applications such as analytics for provision of end-to-end solutions.”

Several vendors trail these leaders with solid foundations for growth and long-term success. These contenders are well-positioned to become leaders but have not yet fully executed their product launches. To succeed, they will need to differentiate themselves with unique value add applications to secure greater demand and higher market penetration.

The report, Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Industrial IoT Networking Solutions Vendors, assesses the competitive landscape for IIoT networking solutions providers, and how well different companies are positioned to address customer needs. This report is intended to help market participants better understand their competitors’ solution offerings, differentiation, and track record in deploying IIoT networks.

An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Guidehouse Insights website.
