New research from Berg Insight states that the global number of mobile network connections used for wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication will increase by 21% in 2014 to reach 213.9 million at the year-end. Over the next five years, the global number of wireless M2M connections is forecasted to grow 22.9% each year to reach 599.7 million connections in 2019. The big trend driving technology adoption is what Berg calls the concept of connected management, or remote device connection to applications for the purpose of managing assets and products, costs and revenues, and relationships and behavior.
On this episode of Engineering Live, ECN’s expert panel will discuss:
- What it will take to reach 600 million connections by 2019.
- Connected cars and other areas in which connected management has not only proven applicable, but profitable.
- What a drastically more connected world will look like.
- Why (and if) every asset and product should be directly linked to the enterprise network, feeding data in real-time to relevant IT-systems.
We’ll ask the panel.
