Re: IoT segments
@batye:

You brought up a good point. Time is key and could even be considered as a driving factor in some cases. But the question now is 'Do we have that time to wait?' if you think about short lived ever changing trendy age that we are living in today. So i would say there is good and/or bad effect with length of time taken. Sometimes longer wait yields into positive result where as some other times things may get staled and there is good possibility of losing momentum. So TIME is a real tough battle.

Re: Will This ThingSpace catch on?
 

Interesting points.

Verizon 4G LTE barrier for non Verizon customers is surely a limitation. I agree with you about the need to work off the restriction around will be a big driver for faster adaptability for consumer market.

Will This ThingSpace catch on?
What are the odds of this ThingSpace catching on? As just a casual observer of tech adoption trends of the years, it's usually the platforms that are useful and convenient that really catch on. So is ThingSpace useful? Sure, it probably has plenty of IoT use cases, just like a bunch of other IoT platforms and IoT itself... but is it convenient? Hmmm.... It seems inherently tied to Verizon's 4G LTE, so that's a barrier if you're not a Verizon user. Obviously, VZ wants developers to stick with VZW solutions, but I think the adoption of IoT might be a bit faster if it didn't come with these kinds of restrictions.

Telcos may have to "Transform" a bit more -- and start thinking beyond their core business of selling bandwidth.

Re: IoT segments
@Dhagar yes, changing a culture is a huge challenge. It's even harder than breaking a habit!

Re: IoT segments
ms.akkineni, well said.  I think the culture change may be the biggest challenge for the future, but also the one that can truly open the doors to change.

Re: IoT segments
vnewman, that level of performance will be highly competitive - I think you are right.  Again, beyond the utility of IoT, the distinctive performance should make a real difference.

Re: IoT segments
ms.akkineni, well said.  Definitely, or we will just end up with infrastructure that does not work or fit the current demands.

In addition, I believe it will require new designs, as opposed to plugging in our known solutions and trying to make those serve the new requirements. 

That's why the Verizon platform looks to be a promising solution.
