InterDigital has completed and contributed research into IoT since its earliest days. As early as 2010, when 40 members of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) held their first-ever M2M meeting outside Europe at our offices in Pennsylvania, and participants connected their devices to an InterDigital interconnectivity prototype platform. Our IoT-specific research, coupled with our contributions into a broad range of connectivity technologies that experts expect to see underpin the Internet of Things like LTE-M, NB-IoT, and 5G, make InterDigital one of the leaders in fundamental IoT technology. We’re also founding members of Avanci, the industry’s premier IoT licensing platform, alongside some of the top names in wireless R&D.
