Why it's time to break down boundaries to unleash the full potential of IoT

March 17, 2020 / Andreas Neubacher

The introduction of the Global System for mobile communications (GSM) opened the door to a new era for the telecoms industry. By introducing interoperability within the ecosystem, global standardised technical interfaces were made available, new business relationships were formed and new forms of co-operation emerged. As a result of this, today users now have the luxury of being able to choose their mobile phones from whichever vendor they wish, independent of the network operator or the vendor of the mobile network equipment. None of this was possible prior to the introduction of standardised GSM technology – highlighting the significant role standards have to play in enabling a globally connected ecosystem.
