Will 2019 be the year of cellular IoT?

Will 2019 be the year of cellular IoT?
It’s a bold claim, but 2019 should see cellular IoT finally become a large-scale commercial reality. This prediction comes even as competitive low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies, such as those from LoRa and Sigfox, appear to have taken an early lead on the back of publicly-announced commercial successes and cheaper per module prices.

What makes a standard successful?

What makes a standard successful?
Standards are great and there are so many to choose from. While this statement appears to ring true, closer inspection reveals very few standards reach ubiquity. Some are successful in one or two markets, for example, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) standard has remained dedicated to serving a narrow sector since it was first introduced in 1983.
