Machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies promise a future where machines will now be connected through the internet and will actively communicate with each other, transmitting vital data to a central location. Each device must be equipped with a communication module or a sensor for data collection. The data generated from this communication allow enterprises to gain actionable insights and the two-way communication between machines eliminates the need for human intervention in many routine service operations.
According to a research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight: The global number of wireless M2M connections is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.2% to reach 359.3 million in 2016.
