M2M Application Enablement Platforms (AEPs)

Purchase

The cumulative global connections in the cellular M2M market will rise significantly from 2011 to 2017. Some important industry players have published their own forecasts of 20 billion to 50 billion total connected devices by 2020 for the broader "Internet of Things." Nevertheless, a key challenge for the industry remains the complexity of developing, deploying, and managing M2M applications over the cellular network. This is a challenge both for mobile network operators that are trying to offer profitable services tailored to the M2M market, as well as for application developers and service providers that are trying to reduce costs, reduce speed time to market, and simplify robust application deployments.
