Re: The Internet of Things' Data
Thanks for your question. I think that given your last point, data usage plans, this will insert an interesting wrinkle into how we process, transport and persist data. My informed gut tells me that 3G may very well be the preferred type of connectivity at the edge for IoT. Given this point it suggests we need to move processing out to the edge to minimize the relatively narrow WAN/3G GSM bandwidths.
The results are sneakernet-like behaviors of shipping data back to central locations. I already konw that Oil and Gas companies, as well as portions of various Governments take this approach already. Perhaps FedEx, UPS, Kuro Neko (Japan version of UPS), DHL, etc. have roles to play here and maybe the idea of data logistics will become something we contend with.
