It's still scary that it could happen.. and maybe it'll be 100 lines of code, not just one.

Re: Someday...
The joke used to be "Fusion is the energy source of the future.. and always will be." Since the predictions have always been that fusion is "30 years away" and those predicitons have kept saying that, year after year.

Now, it looks like the future of fusion is 15 years away.. but it's still just out of reach.

Devil's Advocate
"They work well independently but their power is multiplied exponentially and service providers' value increases immeasurably as separate ecosystems are joined and data from each separate system is combined for more actionable information" 

What happens when something goes wrong with one system? Does it affect every other system in the ecosystem? Are there any fail safes and if so how many? It makes me worry that someday entire cities will be crippled by a single line of code.

> "we're finding more ways to push the future further into the future!!"

Ha! But eventually, we'll catch up, right? Just like fusion energy used to be always 30 years away.. now they say it's more like just 15 years away... We're asymptotically approaching it.. so it's getting closer.. but will it ever arrive?

Sounds like we're finding more ways to push the future further into the future!! I think we're not gonna be launching any smart cities anytime soon.

Re: Someday...
It will be interesting to watch how horizontal services are monetized as noted there are several ways to go about it i.e. "monetization, where providers charge for a device or service, for example, within an IoT ecosystem, whether a customer uses it or not; data-based monetization, where customers pay the provider for data the device generates." It would seem my guess that eventually. over perhaps some considerable time from now. services will be billed primarily by the data used much like electricity, gas and water are now sold.

Someday...
The promise of vertical IoT applications hasn't yet been fulfilled, so it may take a bit more time to get horizontal applications off the ground, no? Connected cars aren't quite all ready yet. And 5G is barely starting out -- unless you count the logo changes of devices regardless of whether or not the tech is supported.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
