Webinar - A Quick Guide to Successful M2M Solutions Deployment
By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor
If there is one major buzz acronym in the tech sector that has sent SIP, VoIP, IVR and BPO to the backburner this year it would have to be M2M, or machine-to-machine. From the healthcare space to the transportation sector to the smart grid arena, M2M solutions – or solutions in which machines talk to machines – have taken the tech space by storm.
The benefits of M2M solutions are countless as they range from improving the safety and efficiency of fleet drivers to granting individuals peace of mind that their loved ones who are sick will be securely monitored to successfully monitoring electricity grids for capacity and outage conditions to enable isolation and repair of disruptions. More generally, M2M solutions are capable of augmenting business results through optimized assets utilization, improving performance and reducing costs, and bolstering processes and productivity through direct communication between remote machines and central management systems.
If done well, a successful M2M/connected product strategy can allow countless devices that are geographically separated to connect seamlessly. But that is just the beginning, according to industry experts. Comprehensive M2M solutions account for how the data will be analyzed, how it will be fed into legacy backend systems and how it will ultimately be stored.
Fortunately for those out there looking for a quick guide to successful M2M end-to-end solutions deployment, AT&T (News - Alert) and Axeda are teaming in a few days to host a free webinar event titled “The Connected Product Revolution (News - Alert): 5 Steps to M2M End-to-End Solutions.” Taking place Monday, May 14 at 2 p.m. EST/11 a.m. PT, the webinar will cover: the value of connected products; the role and advantages of an application development platform in an M2M project; how to get connected products to market fast; how to scale from hundreds to thousands to hundreds of thousands of connected devices; and best practices from customer case study examples.
