M2M Applications
• Small But Growing: M2M only 2% of all data plans in 2010 (up 46%)
• Consumers Driving Demand: Consumer electronic devices account for most
M2M growth in North America and Europe, especially e-readers and personal
navigation devices
• Growth Varies by Industry:
- Transportation is the largest industry (and still growing)
- Healthcare and Security applications overcoming privacy concerns
- Emerging industries include Digital Signage and Metering
Cellular Connectivity
What’s fueling the growth?
• Government funding
• Dropping technology prices
• Reduced connectivity rates
from cellular carriers
• Increased availability of
cellular networks worldwide
• Regulatory compliance
