The Critical Role of IoT Service Providers

When consumers think about the Internet of Things, perhaps they think about a SmartHome, with all their appliances, lights and security tools embedded into a single application on their phone. Others imagine medical devices that help them stay in constant control of an elderly parent’s health situation, while some might envision a smart city that communicates where the nearest available parking spot is located.

This 1960’s cartoon featured many things we take for granted, including mobile phones, the Internet, video conferencing and even connected devices that are just hitting our radar, such as Home Health Monitoring and the Connected Home. Described as a phenomenon, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication is part of a larger initiative to create an “Internet of Things”; a global and ubiquitous network that extends smart connectivity to encompass everyday objects, such as […]  More >>
