@Joe lucky you! Conferences are a great place to pick up stuff you will never ever need or want ;)

Re: Impressive Growth
> 24% is a pretty big jump in only a year, I wonder what the number one factor is in driving this growth.

Well, you have to understand that it's still a pretty nascent service line -- and enterprise IoT connectivity was a huge problem for companies even just two years ago.

That said, what's driving Verizon's infrastructure and its pursuit of the IoT business?  That one's easy.  AT&T.  ;)

@Michelle: Hah!  For my own part, I expect to be stuffing a lot of stockings with some of the gadget swag I picked up at conferences this year.  ;)

These announcements were really just a matter of time -- particularly considering the still pretty hush-hush announcements surrounding VZ's IoT platform, ThingSpace, and what they're adding to it (i.e., all of their APIs, an apps store called Verizon Marketplace, and VZ's Big Data analytics engine).  Those factors, combined with some recent job postings at VZ I've been seeing involving IoT, indicate that the company has IoT as a key and critical component of their near-future and long-term future plans.

Re: Impressive Growth
@Michelle yes, and I do wonder that we don't see more tinfoil hats on the market -- if only as gag gifts. I did a quick search and only uncovered T-shirts that reference tinfoil hats here: http://www.zazzle.com/tinfoil_hat_time_t_shirt-235544043775927275 But hats themselves, I guess, would have to be homemade with a roll of aluminum foil.

Re: Impressive Growth
@Ariella I'm probably the tinfoil hat type myself. I have to agree that some of the technology is really neat in theory. Actual usage is less than ideal (and we're back to tinfoil hats).

Re: Impressive Growth
@Michelle indeed. One size does not fit all when it comes to these things. Some people find the tech cool and are perfectly content to use something that passively shares on their behalf. Others would prefer a tinfoil hat to a gadget that lets people know where they are in real time.

Verizon IoT Business
"Verizon announced plans to deploy Category M1 LTE network technology on its network to support IoT. The deployment is part of the carrier's strategy to "make cellular network connectivity simple, reliable and economically viable as IoT adoption increases".

Well I am waiting to see this since Verizon is the most expensive carrier in the U.S. and the quality of service has slowly declined. Hopefully all these M&A's and revenue earned will be used to improve customer service and the quality of their products and services.
