Re: Dedicated Core is not enough
Good comment fmalka --I wasn't aware of jpu.io. Maybe LR should get you on the next Israel road-trip video. I'm sure you're aware, there are a few companies with this kind of approach (Expeto, Cisco/Jasper, Nokia, etc, Working Group Two?). It would be interesting to hear how you do things.

Dedicated Core is not enough
It is indeed elementary to be able to provide a dedicated mobile core to support a specific IoT vertical in a more agile way. However, most of the IoT use cases are very costs sensitive and having a traditional dedicated core is costly. In addition, the mobile core doesn't provide all the functionality required to most of the IoT use cases, you would typically require a connectivity management platform and a billing system to support the IoT use case. In some other scenarios you might also require additional elements to provide end-to-end security and to manage the edge devices themselves. Therefore, there is a need, for a consolidated lightweight solution that can provide all these capabilities in one platform, this to support  both mobile operators and enterprises to make IoT business possible and profitable. For more details, i recommend visiting https://jpu.io.

The cost model is why I'm really interested in IoT micropayments. These could be done with digital currency - the San Francisco startup 21 Inc. is looking into doing this. Micropayments for microservices I think are the future of IoT.

We knew something like this might come as demand for IoT connectivity grew. I'm pleased to see plans like cost access for these devices - it makes sense.

@Gabriel: What are your insights here as to why, despite enthusiasm for Cat-M1 and related techs, telcos seem to have largely pooh-poohed Non-LTE-based LPWAN solutions?

International wholesale operator wants to play a bigger role with enterprise customers but adding services such as data center interconnect and SD-WAN requires additional operational and business support tools.
While there is a fair degree of hype around the term 'cloud native' and plenty of misuse by software marketeers, it is clearly an important topic among CSP CTOs and CIOs.
Telcos need new ways to monitor their services and networks and some are turning to the open source community for inspiration.
What's the best way forward for operators when it comes 5G transport networks?
A collaboration between the industry's largest trade group of mobile network operators and the preeminent open source consortium is aiming to simplify and harmonize dozens of NFVi efforts.
