M2M (machine to machine) is the communication between machines that aims to structure processes faster, more efficiently and more securely, and open up new business segments.
IoT (Internet of Things) means that even simple, everyday objects are connected to the Internet so that data can be shared online.
Wireless communication is the key communication technology for transmitting data, remote control, remote diagnostics and remote maintenance from individual devices, plant or entire systems.
The data is acquired either using sensors attached to an M2M device or directly, using machine interfaces. Depending on the application, this M2M hardware will be a router, a gateway, a data logger, an automation or control unit, etc., with an integrated M2M SIM card. Once the data acquired has been sent via the mobile network, it is stored on a central server. The user either accesses the data via a web portal or using standard interfaces to then process it further in other systems, websites, smartphone apps, etc.
Depending on the requirements and application, different functions can be implemented in the M2M/IoT application concerned:
T-Mobile can give you all the data transmission components for M2M/IoT solutions from a single source. For you, this means controlling and organizing systems that are sometimes far apart, which enables reliable, cost-efficient solutions using the latest technology.
Machine to machine (M2M) can be used profitably in almost any area of the economy – from industry and transport, energy and security, through to retail and the public sector. In addition to extending business segments, the optimization of complex processes and the associated reduction in costs constitute the main customer benefits of machine to machine.
M2M makes workflows simpler, processes leaner, and enables entirely new business models. Typical advantages include remote administration, monitoring, optimization, and notification functions.
M2M communication gives you real-time data that provides the basis for new services, business models, target groups and markets. This is of particular interest to you if you want to develop your business from one-off sales to models with ongoing customer relationships.
Remote diagnostics and maintenance functions are essential for sustainable, inexpensive service structures. Many tasks can be completed remotely without having to be on-site.
M2M solutions can monitor the status of the connected devices and their environment in real time. This enables any faults or failures to be detected immediately and further harm can be avoided.
The automated sharing of information opens up a wide range of opportunities for optimizing processes. Automation can make manual activities, which may be error-prone, quicker, more efficient and more secure.
