Machine-to-Machine Training Bootcamp Description

What is Machine-to-Machine or M2M?

Machine-to-Machine connects machines, devices and appliances wirelessly. M2M makes machines intelligent and open up a range of possibilities for enterprises and consumers.

Machine-to-Machine communications is the exchange of data between machines, a remote machine and a back-end IT infrastructure. The transfer of data can be done two-way both uplink and downlink.

M2M communications are made possible by a device such as a sensor attached to a machine to capture communicating via network delivering data to applications. The intelligent sensors are embedded in a remote asset and capture events such as movement, altitude, temperature, location, consumption, heart rate, stress levels, light and speed.

M2M communications can be used to gain immediate feedback on how a particular remote asset is being used, which features are most popular and what problems such as errors or breakdowns typically arise. This information is useful for shortening the lead-time to an improved or updated version or offering proactive services, thereby providing a competitive edge. When applied to people, M2M communications can help to protect lone workers or vulnerable children, be used to find a missing person and to help improve lives by ensuring the correct medicines are being taken.

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is considered to be a key enabler of applications and services across a broad range of vertical markets including:

  • Automotive
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Consumer Goods
  • Energy & Utilities
  • Financial Services
  • Healthcare Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Public Services
