Internet of Things Probably is a "Must Have," Not a "NIce to Have" Category of Apps
There’s a very good reason companies such as Huawei are so focused on the Internet of Things, and why one major assumption about fifth generation mobile networks is that the next generation of mobile networks will be the first to intentionally feature performance helpful for some IoT applications.
Simply put, we soon will reach a point where nearly every human being who wants to use mobile networks already will have bought service, supporting multiple devices as part of the service.
So if revenue growth cannot be driven by services for people, IOT is really important, as it opens the door to selling service to connected machines and sensors.
In that sense, IoT is not a “nice to have,” but quite possibly a “must have” new class of services.
