M2M Visions of 2020

Jeffrey O. Smith, Chief Technology Officer and EVP at Numerex, shares his vision of the connected world in 2020.

Ten years ago, while executing a keynote presentation at an M2M industry tradeshow, I showed a live demonstration of remote monitoring of a "real" system inside of a virtual world. I commanded my avatar to push a button in the then-popular Second Life and a video inside that virtual world showed a real-life robotic bunny's ears falling. We’ve come a long way since then but I still believe we will know M2M is successful...

Real-Time Cargo Monitoring helps reduce food wastage.

Four thousand tonnes is the weight of around 1,400 Range Rovers or 3,000 VW Golfs. It is also the amount of food that goes to waste year after year in the UK long before it ever reaches the large supermarket chains’ warehouses, let alone consumers’ refrigerators. There is no need for all that food to go to waste though, as real-time cargo monitoring is a solution that could help food...

White Paper: M2M Opportunities in Consumer Markets

Written by Jennifer Kent, Senior Analyst, and Harry Wang, Director, Health and Mobile Product Research, Parks Associates.

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications—essentially “smart” networked devices talking to each other—are undergoing a period of fundamental change and significant growth.
