Definition Edit

M2M devices (machine-to-machine devices) are devices that are

in constant communication with each other (using wired and wireless networks) without human intervention.[1]

Overview Edit

"By 2020, the connected device market is expected to be dominated not by mobile phones, as it is today, but by machine to machine (M2M) devices — as many as 50 billion of them, by some estimates."[2] A recent study claimed that M2M will generate new revenues and business models as well as enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of current services, leading to a global business impact worth up to $4.5 trillion.[3] "Examples of the economic impact include expected savings of $1 trillion by replacing manual meter readings with smart meters and another $1 trillion from service improvements such as providing clinical remote monitoring for patients with chronic illnesses."[4]
