M2M Evolution will explore the role of M2M technology in four main verticals: transportation, supply chain, proactive response and automotive. The conference will delve into ways that M2M technology helps the flow of information between millions of connected devices over a network.

At M2M Evolution, our goal is to create a conference that brings together M2M technology with the business needs of the deploying enterprise.”
