Vodafone M2M has extended its lead in M2M according to a recent Research Note by Machina Research. The note examines the impact of the last few months’ developments in M2M on the likely success of individual MNOs.
According to Machina Research Vodafone has been setting the pace in M2M in the last few months, with several announcements that either directly, or indirectly, impact its capabilities in the M2M space.
Jim Morrish, Director, Machina Research, said; ‘Vodafone has opened up its lead over other MNOs, due mainly to its alliance with Datora Mobile in Brazil. Brazil represents a very significant opportunity for M2M due to its absolute size and potential economic growth rate.’
According to Machina Research, Vodafone’s entrance into the domestic Korean M2M market is also a sensible and pragmatic move, and one that underlines its global ambitions.
Gartner has positioned Vodafone as a "Leader" in its Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, Worldwide report 2017, for the fourth consecutive year
