M2M & Internet of Things

For a better connected business world, an informed approach to M2M (machine to machine) connectivity and the Internet of Things (IOT) is essential.

M2M and IOT are related concepts, but have important differences. While the Internet of Things relates to a ‘world’ of remotely connected real life devices, from GPS trackers to water level monitors, it is M2M which allows the Internet of Things to connect and communicate.
