Re: IoT segments
@DHagar, @mpouraryan:

So True. Education at this revolutionary times is a recurring need. Knowledge and experience sharing is equally critical. No matter how much education we get to, there could be so much more we tend to pick up from a shared experience from someone. That other perspective is always great to be aware of. Lastly mindset and culture - these are two critical challenges whenever we have to deal with something new or a revolutionary concept.

Re: IoT segments
"You look at network on demand, which is a virtualization capability, it's the fastest adopted service we have. We're up to 450 enterprise customers already deployed. We're moving very quickly and I think the customers are not at all hesitant."

Network on demand, in my opinion, has potential to be a real game-changer.  The need for speed is real and they've made fairly good in-roads with some big companies.  How it all plays out remains to be seen, but the fact that people are willing to pay for this as a premium service (when usually the trend is toward discounting) says a lot, I think.

This is building the railroad tracks in front of the oncoming train!

Very well said. What is extremely important at this time is, be extra cautious to make sure the foundation is foolproof as I don't see that there is any tolerence for things to go wrong at this crucial times.

Companies must ensure that a good model is in place with all key areas like Infrastructure, Security and ability to customize per cutomer's needs and priorities.

Re: IoT segments
mpouraryan, your point about education is so true.  We have to learn how to discover and learn again in order to gain the knowledge of the new environment.  Then it is a matter of sharing that knowledge and changing the mindset and cultures of those who have not yet learned.

Re: IoT segments
mpouraryan, indeed.  These are truly "revolutionary" times that require new solutions, new services, and new cultures to support it.  We are truly changing and in the process of shaping the future.

Your points are excellent about the challenges to make the pieces all work and to ensure security as well.  That's why I believe the platform architecture is a good design to build the back-end infrastructure and continue to develop the appropriate channels and applications.  Clearly flexibility is key.

Re: IoT segments
The foundation is there--no question.  Their challenge is to sustain it because it requires a lot of education.   It is a matter of crossing the 'Chasm" that is yet to be fully realized.

Re: IoT segments
The March to progress is quite fun to be witness to.   As it is a welcome development to see this, the back end infrastructure to support this is also quite a challenge as well--up to and including the security.

Re: IoT segments
Ariella, makes sense!  We will increasingly rely on these new capabilities to improve our quality of life and better support people in their homes and otherwise isolated.

It will totally change the healthcare delivery options - "connectivity" will be the new norm for patient care.

@DHagar yes, and that can prove really life-changing for some people with conditions that require regular monitoring.

Re: IoT segments
Ariella, great applications.

Particularly with healthcare, not only the real time but also the IoT SC will help them provide services that people trust.

Additionally, they will open up new markets with their effective use of low bandwidth, where that can increase access.
