Pesquisa nacional revela aumento no uso de pontos de acesso para smartphones apesar das preocupações

62% dos usuários de smartphones aproveitam as capacidades de pontos de acesso dos dispositivos, um aumento de 9% desde maio de 2012, de acordo com uma nova pesquisa de mais de 700 consumidores de dispositivos móveis nos EUA. Apesar do aumento do uso, muitos consumidores ainda estão preocupados com o custo, usabilidade e falta de opções de planos disponíveis para pontos de acesso de smartphones e as operadoras estão perdendo oportunidades importantes para rentabilizar com pontos de acesso pessoais. Esta pesquisa foi conduzida pela uSamp e encomendada pelo provedor de soluções de wireless e mobilidade Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMSI).

A pesquisa revela:

  • 71% dos entrevistados usaram um dispositivo de ponto de acesso dedicado, um ponto de acesso para smartphones, ou ambos, para conectar dispositivos Wi-Fi à internet móvel:
    • quase a metade não são usuários frequentes
    • mais de 25% não pagam a sua operadora pelos serviços de pontos de acesso, em vez disso abusam de aplicativos para acessar estes recursos em seus smartphones.
  • A maioria dos usuários de pontos de acesso são usuário de dados pesados, no entanto, mais de dois terços dos usuários de dados leves e moderados usariam serviços de pontos de acesso pessoal, se sua operadora oferecesse um modelo de precificação "pague quando usar", apresentando uma oportunidade de receita para as operadoras.
  • Para quase um terço dos entrevistados que não utilizam qualquer forma de ponto de acesso pessoal, questões de privacidade (27%) e o desejo de evitar um outro contrato sem fio (21%) foram os maiores contribuintes para não utilização.

"Mais de 90% dos tablets vendidos nos EUA são apenas Wi-Fi, então alavancar as funcionalidades de pontos de acesso de smartphones para rentabilizar com esses dispositivos é uma grande oportunidade para as operadoras", disse Sunil Marolia, VP, gestão de produto da Smith Micro. "Nossos resultados de pesquisa destacam algumas preocupações que impedem uma adoção mais ampla, e perda de receita significativa associada com os serviços de pontos de acesso. Ao fazer pontos de acesso móveis fáceis de usar com modelos de negócios mais flexíveis por trás deles, as operadoras podem melhor aproveitar o potencial de receita desses dispositivos".

Usabilidade de pontos de acesso pessoais

Usabilidade e funcionalidades foram examinadas para usuários de pontos de acesso frequentes e ocasionais. Ambos os grupos listaram custo, gasto da bateria e opções de planos limitados como suas maiores preocupações, mas os usuários infrequentes de pontos de acesso também citaram preferências nas seguintes áreas:

  • 54% querem acesso mais fácil, de apenas uma etapa para conectar um dispositivo a um ponto de acesso pessoal
  • 49% querem diagnósticos automáticos para ajudar a solucionar problemas de conectividade
  • 43% preferem serviços de ponto de acesso patrocinados por propagandas, mesmo se limites de uso forem aplicados

Uso profissional versus recreativo

Outros resultados da pesquisa revelam preocupações significativamente variadas entre os usuários de pontos de acesso profissionais (dispositivos e serviços de ponto de acesso pagos pelo empregador) contra usuários recreativos. Por exemplo, 59% dos utilizadores profissionais estão preocupados com o desempenho dos pontos de acesso, onde apenas 16% dos usuários recreativos citaram desempenho como uma preocupação. No entanto, uma vez que dois terços dos utilizadores profissionais também usam seus pontos de acesso para fins recreativos, a importância dos recursos avançados de gestão e controle para evitar violações de segurança e contas exorbitantes de dados móveis devem ser consideradas não apenas por usuários de pontos de acesso, mas também pelos empregadores.

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 is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
