Embedded communication technology that can communicate location, status, and other characteristics are already growing dramatically as businesses realize the effect that device connectivity can have on their bottom lines. Industry analysts confirm that the M2M industry will grow at phenomenal rates, but that the M2M eco-system is still confused. The M2M Zone cuts through this confusion, and provides you with the forum to meet and speak with your customers, not just other vendors.
