Re: Big pipes @thebulk: While that may be true, I am really worried about the IOT space. You, me and everyone else who have seen IOT firsthand are sure that the road for IOT will become smooth in the long run, but what if all these standards bottleneck the IOT development schemes?

Re: Big pipes I agree that the total lack of consistant standards are difficult for the IoT space right now. It really does make it hard for companies to lay claime on anything when in 6 months the standard they are using could be old news. 

But I see this as a growing pain for the IoT space, it to shall pass.

Too many standards? Basically so many standards are there because the standardization organisations is made up of people from independent public sectors as well as private companies and when there was no standards, these PSU and private companies made IOT only to realize that standardization was not made till then, so they forced upon the iot world the standards they thought would increase their business without having them to change the structure of development for the IOT.

Re: Big pipes @thebulk: Nobody said having an IOT company is easy. They have got so many things to deal with as of this moment. Firstly, IOT has to have a dedicated supply chain for the IOT industry to benefit, which it doesn't have. Secondly there are a lot of standardization bodies spewing out new standards of operation which is not good for business.

Big pipes I can see why providers do not want to be just pipes, but it is going to be hard for them to get traction in the IoT space, IMO, its not an area they are known for so it will be hard for them to break in.
