Wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Adoption

There are many challenges in the successful adoption of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology. M2M is a modern term associated with the automated connectivity of remote machines with central management IT systems. Whilst IT systems conform to open standards that ease interoperability, this is largely not the case when communicating with machines.

The problem is further compounded because the infrastructure connecting remote machines with central computers was designed for human users capable of decision-making to recover from unexpected problems. But what happens when this human element is removed? Aside from the technical issues, projects often fail where the business case for adopting the technology is not fully understood.

In this article we provide an understanding of M2M, discuss the fundamental issues, and propose a strategic approach from early development to successful deployment of a resilient M2M solution.
