Biggest #IoT Meet Up in Reading so far with 100+ attendees far (#TV_IOT). The Smart Meter programme update from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (www.gov.uk/smart-meters-how-they-work ) received a lot of questions around the business model and data privacy. The roll-out of smart meters will start in earnest this year and complete by 2020. Will the Government IoT implementation guides and policies help pave the way for future IoT implementations?
As the smart meters go online, meters in the north will be served by Arquiva's Sigfox network and meters in the south by Telefonica's GSM network. The Sigfox network will be rolled out to the 10 largest cities first. This could give an early market advantage for businesses planning to use Sigfox connected sensors. Access to the Sigfox network will be offered by subscription and costs based on number of messages per month. GSM connectivity is widely available across the country with a number of different payment models for different payloads.

There is often a disconnect between projects and the strategic objectives. The broken connection usually surface during User Acceptance Testing. By then it is too late to fix the problem.
