Does net neutrality apply to machine to machine communications?
I am exploring this for a talk at LTE summit in Amsterdam next week
In a nutshell
Net neutrality = all packets are created (commercially) equal
It matters because networks are about communication and innovation shifts to the edge of the network
However, this innovation is driven by people(who are at the edge of the network)
So, in a M2M(vs a P2P scenario), there are no ‘people at the edge’ to innovate
Furthermore, network traffic is predictable
Machines don’t want to talk more than what they are designed to
When they do communicate, they often need network level QOS
So, does net neutrality apply to M2M networks?
