Top 20 M2M Companies - 2017

The M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communications industry has allured increasing attention during the past several years. Analyst in the M2M landscape predicts that total number of M2M device worldwide connections will grow from 62 million to 2.1 billion devices by 2020, at a growth rate of 36 percent per year. With increasing sophistication and specialization of mobile life sciences, M2M is providing long range connectivity across of range of different verticals, leading to greater cross-industry cooperation and new revenue opportunities. Also, Cloud-computing and abundant data available on the internet has engendered ‘deep learning’ in machines. However, as the adoption of M2M increases, the management of rapidly increasing number of connected devices is resulting in reduced workflow performance and increased security threats. To overcome such difficulties, M2M vendors and service providers are offering new strategies such as M2M security, Connected Device Platforms (CDP), and Application Platforms.

M2M solutions offer help to “smart” products built with M2M technology from engineering and manufacturing to everyday products like Internet-connected appliances, home heating units, and electric meters. High performance MNOs shall be helped to position themselves for long term participation in emerging value chains by having a clear and defensible strategy at both the device and service level where device data is collected, analyzed and acted upon. The implications of cost, power, and long-term product lifecycle challenges of M2M technology are being focused upon in the M2M market.

After carefully examining a multitude of M2M solution providers for their strengths and capabilities, a team of distinguished CIOs, CEOs, analysts, and the CIOReview editorial board has shortlisted the best among them.
