As wireless devices such as smartphones proliferate, and as the technologies that deliver wireless Internet services such as LTE and WiMAX - see network roll-outs on a larger scale, a business deployment model known as "Machine to Machine," or "M2M," is gaining traction. Generally speaking, M2M technology brings public wireless data networks to more and more consumers and businesses, so the concept refers to deployments involving back-end servers and wireless carrier networks, as well as wireless devices. It's a complicated picture that calls for carriers to accommodate emerging business needs as they sell new data plans, yet IP communications insiders say M2M's has a huge upside in terms of market penetration.

Each day, you will find the latest news, articles, interviews, white papers, videos and other featured content here on the TMCnet-hosted M2M industry site. This site is your resource for the rapidly developing technologies that surround Machine to Machine technology, federal regulators' and carriers' approval of M2M devices, how carriers are meeting the challenge of providing second- and third-tier support for M2M and how M2M device, software, service and network markets are growing in the public and private sectors.
