20 Most Promising M2M Solutions Providers - 2016

Today, more machines connected to the Internet are transforming business operations across industries. Greater demand for M2M solutions is primarily triggered by the widespread adoption and proliferation of affordable wireless communication, apart from standardization of IPv6 and advancement of networked devices to exchange information and perform actions. With the primary aim to connect, monitor, and actuate devices, M2M technologies transfer data on the condition of physical assets and devices to a remote central location for effective monitoring and control.

 Nevertheless, M2M communications pose significant challenges to mobile network due to the expected large number of devices with simultaneous access for sending small-sized data, and a diverse application range. Today’s M2M service providers are offering new strategies in the submarkets taking into account various considerations—ranging from cost and power to long-term product lifecycle challenges and interference. The recent evolution in computing power, especially in the cloud, and the wide availability of data from the Internet has enabled ‘deep learning’ and the ability for machines to learn complicated data. These ‘smart machines’ can be applied to a variety of highly specialized industries and also could become one of the major tech shifts in the decades to come.
