As with most technologies, open source is a natural place to look for solutions. With IoT, open source will remain and will drive some innovation and competition. However, purpose-built software vendors will always provide higher value and more stability than open source, as well as enable the next level of innovation.

The IoT presents exciting new business opportunities for telcos – especially in an era where traditional revenue streams are being eroded by the growing influence of OTT providers. But in order to win in the IoT, telcos must innovate and reinvent themselves. Failure to do so will result in losses and missed opportunities.
