Chua, formerly of network equipment manufacturer Juniper Networks and market research firms IDC, IHS (News - Alert)/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 (News - Alert), whose staff has increased 37% in the past 16 months. In 2012, Infonetics opened an office in Shanghai, China, to ultivate 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 verticals."

GODFREY CHUA BIO (http://www.infonetics.com/bios.asp id=gc)

Mobility expert Godfrey Chua joined Infonetics in February 2013, bringing with him more than 15 years of experience as a technology analyst, strategist, business developer, and marketer.

An influential thought leader, Chua has appeared on National Public Radio, CNN Asia, and the Business News Network, and is regularly quoted in the press, including The Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Network World.

As a global mobility, business development, and strategy specialist at Juniper Networks (News - Alert), Chua was a member of the Advanced Technologies team, focusing on machine-to-machine (M2M) and next-generation mobile core technologies, and supporting the company's mobile backhaul and mobile security go-to-market efforts. While at Juniper, he also performed market analysis for M2M and next-gen mobile business models.

Previously, Chua was the lead global analyst for IDC's (News - Alert) wireless and mobile infrastructure program. He was also the founding analyst for Emerging Energy Research (acquired by IHS in 2010), and was one of the first analysts to cover the wind power industry. Prior to that, Chua led Pyramid Research's telecommunications research and operations in Asia. He began his career examining automotive supply chain strategies as a research associate at the Center for Regional Economic Issues at Case Western Reserve University.

As Directing Analyst for M2M and Connected World at Infonetics Research, Chua now leads Infonetics' new coverage of M2M-enabling technologies and network architectures - a.k.a. the Internet of Things. Specifically, he tracks the fast-growing connected home (security, entertainment, social, productivity), connected car, connected health (mHealth, healthcare), smart grid (utility), and transport (asset management) vertical segments. In this role, he authors market share and forecast reports, surveys, and opinion pieces on the M2M and connected world technologies, services, trends, industry players, business models, and best practices that are driving investment in the market.

Chua also advises clients on positioning, product development, strategy, partnerships, and business planning to help identify new market opportunities and create differentiated products and services.

A published food writer and former restaurant critic for Boston Event Guide magazine, Chua is fluent in Tagalog and is a huge sports enthusiast, playing basketball, running, and cycling whenever he gets the chance. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
