No doubt that the number of solutions has to be reduced in the IoT universe, but there will still be a need for a flexible technology that will be able to address different standards, or at least one standard which requires flexibility. Dedicated hard wired solutions for modem signal processing won't offer this flexibility, and there is space for new IP providers who could be the equivalent of ARM in embedded DSP, like Simpulse (www.simpulse.fr). They offer a flexible and scalable coprocessor that can be programmed at a Matlab-like language level. This kind of solution will definitely be a key feature for future machine-to-machine communication.
