The trick is knowing when all these things will actually tip to become mainstream. Science fiction writers are a bit too far out to make reliable predictions, and CFOs are a bit too close to the ground to see the disruption in the stratosphere.

@mhhf1ve - wow - that really does open up multiple applications and opportunities and would make IoT an extended instrument.

Great vision!

Well, or you could replace everything I said about self-driving cars with "self-flying drones" -- and if the FAA allows autonomous drones to fly almost anywhere without restrictions, then we'll really see some interesting IoT applications. Especially if those drones can re-fuel in mid-air or be partially solar-powered so that can stay aloft indefinitely.....

Re: Is there any other way?
@mhhf1ve - great vision.  There you go - that is the infrastructure, design, and applications that will truly drive the users and build the mass scale that will ignite IoT.

You may be right about automobiles - they were clearly a driver with GPS and the adoption of technology there, then the phones and smart systems.

When you start connecting and then delivering public/private services of value to the consumer - the consumer will get on board.

Re: Is there any other way?
Clearly, there aren't that many directions to go with IoT network design that make economical sense. IoT devices have to rely on cloud systems, otherwise there isn't a large enough set of "things" to become an internet of things. 

The unknowns, though, are what applications will tip the IoT concept into a mainstream set of services -- and when the tipping point will happen. I think we'll see a tipping point when more autonomous cars are successfully tested and in the hands of real consumers, doing useful work. Once there are a few thousand autonomous robot vehicles roaming around, then things can get really interesting because mobile infrastructure gets deployed much more cheaply. Self-driving vans carrying mini cell towers can optimize wireless networks based on usage patterns. There's not as much risk involved in deploying infrastructure because the demand curves will be measured in real-time. Virtual network functions will complete this virtuous cycle and make efficient networks that are dynamic and self-regulating.

Re: Is there any other way?
@mhhf1ve - agree with your definition of the best structure and opportunities.  Additionally the API's with moble apps will drive the cloud access.  Plus the economies of scale will not make sense with the data points unless you use the cloud access you define.

Is there any other way?
IoT devices are not going to be powerful enough on their own to handle networking and processing and analytics, so the only way to go will be to have IoT devices communicate with Cloud datacenters to offload data and processing functions. Mesh networks might work in some niche applications, but the IoT world of the future isn't going to want to be limited to niche areas.

Cloud IOT world
Cloud has a lot to offer with the Internet of things or business of things and with them two together is just an explosion of something wonderful.
