Overview

Connecting Devices to the Internet

How It Works

Machine-to-machine or M2M connectivity allows for communication between machines and devices and enables the transmission of data, either between the devices or back to a central operator.

When machines are deployed with M2M capability, the benefits for operators to access real-time actionable data, creates huge opportunities to better engage and interact with not just a single machine but across an entire network.

Cellular: The Future of IoT Connectivity

In the past, equipment users and manufacturers have relied on the static collection and retention of data through manual memory transmission such as flash memory sticks. High value assets were often connected via expensive physical hard-wired connections. More recently, devices could transmit live-data over wireless networks but would need to be within proximity of a network and therefore not suitable for mobile or remotely located devices. Wireless networks are unstable and considered far less secure than an equivalent cellular solution.

The latest evolution of machine connectivity and data access, and the one considered likely to be the most pervasive, is the transmission of machine data over a cellular network. Cellular networks are considered the most stable, most secure and most easily scalable option for machine data transmission. Perhaps most importantly, cellular connections unlock the ability for M2M to function on mobile or remotely located devices.

ConnectedIO is a Foot in the Door for Cellular Carriers

Cellular carriers, faced with huge competition and minimal growth in a saturated mobile market were early to recognize the huge potential of IoT and more specifically M2M. M2M for cellular carriers means billions of new potential connections and has resulted in a fundamental shift by carriers from the consumer segment to M2M.

Cellular carriers, not traditionally hardware and software suppliers, are eager to establish relationships with partners who represent new activations in this interconnected, billion device, web of machines and devices.

First Mover in a Growing Internet Revolution

The M2M segment, is a sector its infancy. Organizations are only just beginning to understand and adapt to the capabilities of this new-found connectedness. Many large Enterprises are in the process of redesigning their overall organizational strategies to take advantage of the benefits of real-time granular feedback from their devices.

Device manufacturers and systems integrators – ConnectedIO’s main customer base –  are working with collaboratively with Enterprises and Small-Medium businesses to design solutions that can delivery tangible benefit for operations.
