M2M (Machine to Machine)

Machine to machine (M2M) refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same type.

M2M can include the case of industrial instrumentation - comprising a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event (such as temperature, inventory level, etc.) that is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program) that translates the captured event into meaningful information (for example, items need to be restocked). Such communication was originally accomplished by having a remote network of machines relay information back to a central hub for analysis, which would then be rerouted into a system like a personal computer.

The industry has recognized that M2M imposes new demands.

The classical SIM card does not meet the requirements and a standard SIM card is not perfectly optimized for most of the applications.

There is a new requirement increasing the levels of: Vibration, temperature, humidity, corrosion, shock, longer life spans...

Also together with these new requirements theft becomes a major issue which calls for new form factors, and its standardization.
