Infonetics: Oct. 22 M2M and Internet of Things Event Examines Businesses Using and Benefiting From M2M

Infonetics Research is hosting a free, live webinar today for telecom operators, Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), M2M startups, networking vendors, device and component manufacturers, journalists and analysts looking for real-world use cases of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology.

Hosted by Infonetics’ Directing Analyst for M2M and Connected World Godfrey Chua, The Business Rationale for M2M webcast is presented Tuesday, October 22 at 11 a.m. Eastern.

Infonetics’ October 22 M2M webinar is co-produced with M2M service provider Aeris and M2M cloud app provider SeeControl, presenting real-world M2M use cases of GTX, which provides GPS devices for wearable technology, and Deconstruction, which monitors environmental conditions in real-time at construction sites.

The interactive event takes a look at M2M market drivers, key verticals, applications, challenges and real-world examples demonstrating how M2M is being used to improve efficiency, create new revenue streams, and increase employee and customer satisfaction.

Chua explains: “The M2M industry is caught up in discussions about how many tens of billions of M2M connections there will be by 2020. The ‘how many’ discussions are important, but right now the critical conversations we want to have are around how we will actually get to tens of billions of M2M connections, and why it matters to businesses today. What are the real-world use cases and business models that will provide the foundations for growth? What is the business rationale for M2M?”

Including a 45-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes for audience Q&A, The Business Rationale for M2M is complimentary to all attendees and can be joined Oct. 22 at 11:00 EDT or viewed on-demand following the live event. To register for the free event, visit:

The webcast will be available on-demand for 90 days following the live event.
