Chua, formerly of network equipment manufacturer Juniper Networks and market
research firms IDC, IHS/Emerging Energy and Pyramid, joins Infonetics as
Directing Analyst, M2M and Connected World.

“Godfrey Chua is the missing piece that makes our market coverage whole,” says
J’Amy Stewart, CEO and co-founder of Infonetics Research. “We already cover
everything that machine-to-machine infrastructure connects to: Home networks,
mobile networks, mobile devices, service delivery platforms. With Godfrey on
board we’re now able to cover M2M and connected world networks, equipment,
services, vendors and providers – as well as how they intertwine with other
communications markets. Launching our coverage at this early stage when M2M
business models are just being figured out and understanding the market from
both the operator and enterprise point of view is key.”

Ms. Stewart adds: “Our clients and journalists will be happy to learn that in
addition to his extensive knowledge of and vision for the M2M space, Godfrey
fits the mold of a classic Infonetics analyst: He’s smart, pragmatic,
accessible, understands the big picture, and is very easy to work with.”

Based in Silicon Valley, Chua rounds out an international team of 31 industry,
market and research analysts at Infonetics Research, whose staff has increased
37% in the past 16 months. In 2012, Infonetics opened an office in Shanghai,
China, to cultivate its rapidly-expanding Asia business (up 40% in 2012), and
recently moved its Greater London location to a new office.

“The M2M and connected world markets represent the next generation of
opportunities for technology vendors and service providers across the world,”
Chua states. “With nearly every human being having some form of communication
device, machine-based infrastructure, connections, and services are the
critical next step in the evolution of their business models.”

“I came to Infonetics because I love the collaborative team here, and as a
former client, I know how good the research is. Now I have a platform for
helping companies figure out how to maximize the return on their M2M
investments and where to focus their energy, be it in the smart grid,
connected home, connected car, connected health, transport or other M2M
