As a 15 year M2M veteran, it’s exciting to see the rapid evolution of the market over the last few years. The advent of cloud computing and steady decline in the cost of wireless communication has made it so everyday products can now be connected.
As I have said in the press, disconnected products are dead, they are lame. The most innovative product companies have seen the light and are betting their futures on the services that can be delivered through their products. Examples such as the Kindle and On-Star have demonstrated what these connections can do for an industry. The product is simply a platform for game-changing app development.
Over the next month, I will blog from CTIA and 4G, provide my opinions on why I think the smart grid model is all screwed up, and why carriers must pursue horizontal M2M strategies to win the race. I hope you will join the conversation!
