What is M2M?
Mobile to mobile solutions turns remote objects into intelligent assets. You may have heard of M2M referred to as the Internet of Things. But, M2M actually stands for machine to machine. M2M uses a variety of technologies to turn your everyday objects, like HVAC systems and alarm clocks, into smart tools by connecting those physical objects or machines to the internet. This means they can communicate and share information without the need for human intervention.
First, sensors or other electronic devices are attached to a remote object or machine. Then, depending on the object’s function, the sensors or other electronic devices will capture relevant data and will transmit that data wirelessly to a central server where it is translated into meaningful information. Consequently, information or messages can then be relayed the other way to alter or update the way the machine is behaving. For example, “the machine is running too slow; speed it up.”
How can M2M benefit my life or business?
There are a multitude of smart home and office services that can be enhanced with M2M solutions, including everything from remotely operated security alarms to remote health monitoring systems. For instance, M2M technology can monitor and analyze your business’ energy usage, which will give you access to the information you will need to save on utility costs and more.
Also, with asset tracking, you have the power to know the location of your assets, such as a fleet of delivery trucks or the products being transported in them, with all their status information instantly at your fingertips. Best of all, this can be achieved on a global scale.
Whatever industry your business is in, utilizing M2M services will allow your company to innovate and in turn grow. You will be able to do much more with much less. Just imagine what services you can offer your customers when you know what your machines are doing.
