they seem to have missed the point.

How so? Personally, I don't believe this initiative will upset Ether-giants such as Cisco, etc. but I see them trying.

They make their money on the hardware that they sell and the ASICs in there are fairly specific to them. Opening up their software stack is hardly a big step, most companies don't do it because their products can easily be cloned by nefarious manufacturers (this is quite common in China). If you have such a secure position that no one can copy your hardware (e.g Juniper & Cisco won't), then you can do this with impunity. If this software actually helped commoditise the high end product then I would be happy, but I doubt it will.

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.
