Recently, NWIDA President Adam Wolf was interviewed by The Prepaid Press regarding IoT – the Internet of Things.
Here’s what Wolf said:
There is more to IoT apps than the technical details. Unless there is a revenue stream for distributors and retailers, they will not be motivated to offer them. And, right now, it is unclear how money will be made with IoT. “For all intents and purposes, there is not a lot to sell,” said Adam Wolf, President, National Wireless Independent Dealer Association (NWIDA). “Nobody is going to walk into their local Boost Mobile store and buy a wireless water meter,” he explained. He said that everybody is talking IoT, but it is not something that a mom and pop dealer or even a large retailer can sell.
Wolf does not thing that we are far from being at the point where IoT is marketable, maybe six months or a year, but “we are not there yet,” he said. “Everybody is talking about it, but nobody has real applications or products that the dealers can sell right now.” As Wolf said, the market is not there just yet, but the day is coming soon.
