The IoT industry is exploding, and with that explosion in everything from chipsets to devices to protocols and more, comes the push from service providers and suppliers alike to standardize, collaborate, certify and comply.It’s a natural evolution that many other communications industry segments have already gone through. While some larger industry groups have included the Internet of Things (IoT) under their umbrella of projects and committees, at Mobile World Congress 2015, the LoRa Alliance launched to tackle the standardization of a low power wide area networking (LPWAN) specification intended for battery-operated things.

When Sierra Wireless first started going to the annual Mobile World Congress, it showed off wireless modems and conference-goers marvelled at “anywhere, anytime” Internet connections.

But anywhere, anytime has shifted to “everything connected,” and that spells good news for the Richmond company, which is in the forefront of the Internet of Things (IOT) revolution.

At the recent wireless conference in Barcelona, Sierra Wireless was among companies showcased at the GSMA [Groupe Speciale Mobile Association] Innovation City, a space where the more than 93,000 attendees could get a glimpse of how the Internet of Things — a world in which everything from people to gadgets to machines can be connected — is set to change how we live and work.

It was the last panel session of the Mobile World Congress, and the topic was business models for “connected” consumer packaging in the world of the Internet of Things. The moderator threw the floor open for questions, and one woman in the audience asks how this explosion of connected products could help people with disabilities?

It was a good question, and I wanted to know more about what this would mean in the IoT world.

I went up to talk to her at the end of the session and she introduced herself as Eve Andersson.
