Operators need to implant themselves in the emerging embedded device market

Mention machine to machine (M2M) communication to most people in the telecoms industry and the most likely first example they’ll give you is vending machines ordering their own supplies, or automated gas and electricity meters. But what is rarely discussed is the global nature of many M2M solutions and the impact that has on operators.

Global logistics, asset and cargo tracking and particular industries (for example, automotive) are looking to connected embedded devices to monitor across borders and networks. As the need for more connections increases, global manufacturers with global support centers embedding M2M capability into their products want a SIM that is provisionable across all possible geographies that the product is sold to.

Therefore innovative new roaming agreements and tariffs will need to be developed and deployed to accommodate these evolving patterns of behaviour, where SIMs may communicate frequently regardless of borders and distance.
