Re: Verizon IoT Strategy: Smart Cities, ThingSpace For Developers
Looking at IoT, it seems like on the one hand, the 'smart city' is quite a ways off. Others mentioned the very real and very scary (how seasonal!) security concerns, the huge infrastructure needs, necessary legal framework, and so much more. On the other hand, most of the technology itself seems to be not so far off, in terms of the sensors themselves, the standards, and the framework for how the data is handled. People already own smartphones powerful enough to to tie this all together. Seems smart by Verizon to launch something that will let developers tinker and get ahead of the game. And, hey, the conference is local to me. I'll have to see if I can check it out!
