Well, who's boat would get rocked the most if there are any changes to the status quo? The biggest silicon provider in this field!
I cannot imagine that SDN which promises to make the hardware simpler and a commodity and instead push all the value into software is welcome by the incumbent silicon vendors.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
