Number of Embedded Mobile & M2M Connected Devices to rise to 412 million globally by 2014

POSTED BY Global Administrator
In our latest research on Embedded Mobile & M2M Strategies, the number of embedded mobile & M2M connected devices is expected to rise to 412 million globally by 2014, with connected utility metering expected to be the single largest device area of the five key markets within the burgeoning M2M industry. The markets covered include: Utility metering, Mobile Connected Buildings, Consumer & Commercial Telematics and Retail & Banking Connections. These areas will all show substantial growth in the service revenues they represent, while Healthcare monitoring applications will begin to reach the commercial roll out stage from 2012.  Further findings from the Embedded Mobile and M2M research include: ·  Saturation in operators’ core businesses is leading mobile operators to re-evaluate and invest in the potential of M2M ·  Operators and M2M specialists recognise that scale is key, since ARPU for M2M and embedded devices is lower than for standard mobile services ·  Regulatory initiatives in different geographical areas will provide an important fillip for the M2M market such as European Directives on smart metering ·  With the exception of certain consumer applications such as mobile gaming and eReaders, 3G’s use for M2M applications will be limited for the immediate future as M2M usually does not require the high bandwidth 3G affords That's all for now, you can download your M2M Whitepaper by clicking here...
