GSMA begrüßt Entscheidung der brasilianischen Regierung zur Reduzierung der Besteuerung von Machine-to-Machine-Systemen

Die GSMA begrüßt die Annahme einer Verordnung durch die brasilianische Regierung zur Reduzierung der Besteuerung von Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Systemen. Die neue Verordnung, die von dem brasilianischen Kommunikationsminister Paulo Bernardo angekündigt und von Präsidentin Dilma Rousseff unterzeichnet wurde, trägt dazu bei, die Besteuerung von SIM-Karten und M2M-Systemen erheblich zu reduzieren und schafft Anreize für die Betreiber, neue Dienste wie etwa intelligente Mess- und Abrechnungssysteme, Systeme zur Fahrzeugverfolgung oder Fernüberwachung des Gesundheitszustands zu entwickeln.

„Der Beschluss von Präsidentin Rouseff zur Reduzierung dieser Besteuerung ist ein wichtiger Schritt zur Stimulierung des Wachstums im M2M-Sektor und sollte auch von anderen Märkten als äußerst positives und zukunftsorientiertes Signal gesehen werden”, so Tom Phillips, Chief Regulatory Officer der GSMA. „M2M ist ein neuer Markt, dessen Wachstum durch staatliche Maßnahmen in Form von niedriger Besteuerung und ,Light-Touch-Regelungen’ gefördert werden sollte. Länder wie Brasilien, die das Wachstum von M2M-Diensten unterstützen, werden zu den ersten gehören, die von den sozialen, ökologischen und ökonomischen Chancen dieses neuen Sektors profitieren können.”

Die Verordnung wird zwei Abgaben im Rahmen des Telecommunications Inspection Fund (FISTEL) senken – die Installation Inspection Tax (TFI), die bei der ersten Aktivierung einer SIM-Karte zur Anwendung kommt und die Operation Inspection Fee (TFF), eine jährliche Abgabe für jede aktivierte SIM-Karte. In der Summe entspricht dies einer Reduzierung um 80 Prozent.

Gegenwärtig bestehen in Brasilien rund 8,7 Millionen M2M-Verbindungen (Quelle: GSMA Intelligence). Diese Zahl wird voraussichtlich im Anschluss an diesen Beschluss exponentiell anwachsen. Die GSMA veröffentlichte jüngst einen Bericht unter dem Titel ,The Mobile Economy Latin America’, der prognostizierte, dass bis zum Jahr 2017 84 Millionen M2M-Verbindungen hergestellt werden.

Die GSMA Latin America wird vom 27. bs 29. Mai in Montevideo (Uruguay) eine dreitägige Plenarversammlung abhalten zu der wichtige Regierungsvertreter und Vertreter der Mobilfunkbranche aus ganz Lateinamerika eingeladen werden, um die aktuelle Situation der Branche zu erörtern. Hierzu gehört beispielsweise ein Seminar über M2M-Service-Modelle („Connected Living”, 27. Mai). Weitere Informationen über die Tagung finden Sie unter

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
