This IDC Market Note presents highlights of the IQRF Summit, a conference on enabling Internet of Things solutions that took place in Prague, Czech Republic, on April 24–25, 2018. It provides IDC's views on the IQRF standard and the strategy of the IQRF Alliance.
"The short-range wireless market still is not fully formed, but it is already competitive due to established technologies such as Zig-Bee, Z-Wave, BLE, and others. The main pillars of IQRF solutions, such as interoperability and future standardization, will enable IQRF Tech and the IQRF Alliance to differentiate themselves." — Senior Research Analyst Ksenia Efimova, IDC CEMA
