M2M – The Next Generation

M2M – The Next Generation

While mobile phones allow people to communicate with other people and/or computer systems while on the move, machine to machine (M2M) technology lets machines transfer information between one another using the same underlying mobile networks. This blog will have series of posts covering aspects of M2M in terms of M2M and the need for M2M now Global M2M Market opportunity M2M value chain and M2M business models M2M Enablers Representative Use Cases In this post, aspects of what M2M is, the need for M2M now and its market opportunity will be covered. M2M more broadly refers to the concept, which is best brought to life by the following paraphrased Wikipedia description. The M2M concept comprises a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event (such as temperature, inventory level, etc.) that is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program) that translates the captured event into meaningful information (for example, items need to be restocked) that causes relevant action to be...

Internet of things

Internet of things

Due to increased number of gadgets, appliances, equipment around us everywhere, for safety purposes, to minimize the cost in energy consumption and the desire for smart environment (smart life, smart home, smart office), it has become essential to connect all the devices and control them manually or automatically from a centralized location based on the data generated from them. This is achievable by Internet-of-Things concept. This blog explains Internet-of-Things concept, factors enabling it to be widely adapted and what Sasken is doing in this area. Internet-of-Things is a concept that tries to connect various devices/objects around us in residential, commercial and office buildings. This provides a platform for generating, transmitting, analyzing data from these devices/objects. This analysis helps in inferring some insights and taking decisions based on which the devices are configured/controlled automatically or manually. Though this concept has been in existence from around 1990s, this is being widely adapted recently due to the following factors Availability of miniature chipsets/SoCs like Intel Quark, Marvel MW300 Wi-Fi microcontroller, the MB300...
