"The active introduction of the IoT into business, urban planning and everyday life will necessarily lead to growth for connected devices. This will naturally push the industry to increase communication channel capacity," says Sergey Ponomarenko, IoT and AI project manager at WaveAccess. The logical step will be the emergence of large telecom operators possessing their own computing infrastructures. According to Rusonyx CEO Konstantin Anisimov, one general trend is a departure from physical devices and the spread of serverless, cloud-based architecture. Finally, the spread of cloud technology will entail the transition of IoT developers to the concept of "edge computing." According to Vladimir Lasovskiy, IoT business development manager at Orange Business Services, information processing will be performed not only in the remote cloud but also directly by the connected devices themselves, which will improve task accuracy and guarantee the system's operation under any, even extraordinary, circumstances.
