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, Godfrey 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, Godfrey 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, Godfrey was the lead global analyst for IDC’s 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, Godfrey 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 The Internet of Things at Infonetics Research, Godfrey now leads Infonetics’ coverage of the M2M-enabling technologies and network architectures – also known as the Internet of Things (IoT) – that allow networked devices to connect and share real-time data and perform actions without the manual assistance of humans. Specifically, he tracks the fast-growing connected home (security, entertainment, social, productivity), connected car (infotainment, telematics), connected health (mHealth, healthcare), smart grid (utility), and transport (asset management) vertical segments. In this role, Godfrey authors market share and forecast reports, surveys, and opinion pieces on the M2M technologies, services, trends, industry players, business models, and best practices that are driving investment in the market.
Godfrey 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, Godfrey 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.
