What is M2M?
Welcome to the Internet of Things (IoT)
M2M is driving the Internet of Things (IoT) by connecting machines, devices and objects to the internet, turning them into ‘intelligent’ assets that communicate with the world around them. M2M solutions opens up a new range of possibilities for businesses - how they operate, how they grow and how they keep customers happy.
Every day, thousands of forward-thinking companies are adopting this technology. They use it to gain immediate feedback on how a particular remote asset is being used. By capturing relevant data they can improve performance and reduce costs. M2M is the next technological revolution - and Vodafone can help you take full advantage.
Transformation right across your business
M2M solutions enable businesses to develop new services and revenue streams, operate more efficiently and increase customer satisfaction. M2M also helps you address increasingly stringent compliance and sustainability requirements.
