What is M2M? M2M is an acronym for the term "Machine-to-Machine" and the birth of a 4th generation of computing. M2M is a category of information and communication technology that combines communications, computer, and power technologies to enable remote human and machine interaction with physical, chemical, and biological systems and processes. M2M represents a new kind of application for computing where data are transmitted to and from physical and biological environments (Krishnamurthy, Laksham, 2003). In many ways, M2M represents a "Wireless Revolution," as all things are increasingly connected to the network via wireless telemetry. Analysts are optimistic that a spectrum of promising markets and opportunities abound with an established $100 billion market in 2005. The report provides an analysis of this technology and its markets, industries, and workforce needs in areas including critical infrastructure and heavy industry, transportation and logistics, structural health monitoring and environmental monitoring, retail and wholesale trade, healthcare and medical devices, home networking, and utilities.
