LONDON, Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- connectivity in Context—M2M in the World of Cyber-Physical Production : Business Process Efficiency, Operation Optimisation, and Customer Acquisition to Drive Large-Scale M2M Adoption
The industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) market is an increasingly important source of growth for mobile operators and network service providers. It is allowing operators, service providers, and M2M end users to offset slowing growth, and increase productivity and efficiency. The aim of this study is to understand the future impact of M2M on the industrial and the manufacturing environment. The study provides analysis of global industrial M2M connections under four different functional layers—sensing layer, device layer, network layer, and software and application development layer. Furthermore, it provides an outlook of the key challenges, opportunities, and strategies for M2M value chain participants and solution providers.
