Global networks for M2M eBook

Sunday, 24 March, 2013

M2M has a relatively short history, having been around since 2000 when it became apparent that communication between machines carrying out similar functions would be a good idea. Since the concept of the technology, it has broadened into communication between dissimilar devices, the outstanding example being the medical field where monitoring various conditions of patients has become an expanding use.

But outside medicine, M2M has expanding horizons. It has become a worldwide phenomenon with Europe and the US agreeing to support M2M devices and hopefully adopting global standards that will lead to universal acceptance. Improving efficiencies is one of the key goals as is preventing fraud through the use of smart meters that cannot be tampered with. Control and monitoring of processes in hazardous areas such as oil refineries and nuclear power stations, as well as labour-intensive tasks such as parking and utility meters, are obvious fields for this technology - especially with shrinking workforces and declining skills.
