AI Drives Video Surveillance Applications Development

More CIOs and CTOs are exploring commercial applications for artificial intelligence (AI) use cases that enable the rapid analysis of vast amounts of video content, thereby creating demand for new digital video surveillance solutions.

As the video surveillance industry continues its transition toward IP camera systems with on-device analytics capabilities, savvy solution providers continue to offer connected products and services with vastly better value propositions than traditional, legacy analog video systems.

Video Surveillance Market Development

As a result, ABI Research now forecasts that enterprise video surveillance camera connections will top 348 million by 2023 and that these systems will generate value-added services revenues of $12 billion.

“Success within IoT is largely dependent on the ability of providers to create highly specialized, value-added solutions based upon clearly defined use cases supported by market demand,” said Ryan Harbison, research analyst at ABI Research.

Video surveillance vendors understand the value that this digital transformation can have on end-user experience and have largely focused on crafting end-to-end surveillance solutions that include everything from device components to analytics and professional services -- including the creation of Video Surveillance-as-a-Service (VSaaS) business models.

The VSaaS model was largely borne out of the need for providers to find new revenue opportunities as competition from Chinese camera manufacturers such as Hikvision and Dahua were driving down hardware profit margins.

Additionally, vendors realized there was substantial value in integrating video surveillance systems with other surveillance systems, such as access control and intruder alarms. Solution providers now offer extensive professional services, such as systems integration, device installation, and customized end-user solutions.

These services are critical across all deployments, and as a result, digital video surveillance professional services will generate worldwide revenues of $10 billion in 2023.

In the United States, there are additional opportunities for non-Chinese providers due to the U.S. government’s recent ban on video surveillance equipment from Chinese OEMs. American companies can utilize their extensive professional services offerings to help U.S. organizations transition from Chinese-banned equipment to compliant systems.

Outlook for Video Surveillance Apps

While a lot of attention in the video surveillance industry is on China’s camera equipment manufacturers, providers need to realize that for the most part, China buys Chinese products. In the short-term, solution providers should be focused on the U.S. market not only replacing Chinese OEM equipment but also identifying and selling new services.

"By focusing on the right solutions with the right value-added services to the right markets, video surveillance solution providers can maximize the opportunity in this competitive market,” Harbison concluded.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
