M2M is the Next Technology Revolution!

April 23, 2013

The M2M SIG Presents…
 

The ability to remotely monitor and control machines from one end of the world to the other presents opportunities for unimaginable new applications. Beyond the popular M2M applications that we hear about today, there are other nascent applications that will drive the industry’s growth tomorrow.  These breakthrough applications will either enable new products that could not exist without M2M or will disrupt existing industries. Please join us on Tuesday, April 23rd as we hear from the leaders behind some of these new applications about how their products will drive the M2M industry forward.
