Unlocking the Machine to Machine ecosystem
|According to research unveiled by industry association GSMA, the number of mobile connected devices in the world is set to grow 100 per cent from more than 6 billion today to 12 billion in 2020. This trend will provide a significant growth potential for the entire M2M ecosystem. Mobile operators are uniquely placed to work in partnership with other industries to enable this opportunity.|
