What is M2M technology?
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology allows your machines and devices to communicate directly with one another, eliminating the need for human intervention. And it's not new: from caller ID to microchips, M2M has been streamlining our lives and businesses for decades. But now, we're taking it to the next level.
With wide-reaching modern systems like wireless networks and the cloud, M2M is smarter than ever. Cutting-edge M2M technology allows us to capture events like temperature, inventory level, or status, then relays and translates this data into meaningful, actionable information: telling you that you need to order more inventory, or that your gas tank is low.
And that's just the beginning. M2M applications are increasingly diverse, flexible, and customizable, helping your business boost productivity, efficiency, and growth in everything from asset management to remote monitoring, and more.
Here are just a few ways your business can benefit from M2M technology:
- Seamless device-to-device communication
- Connectivity to the best wireless networks in Saskatchewan
- Transmit your data safely and effectively no matter where you are
- Option to use a private, dedicated network or static IP
- Save on costs
- Generate new revenue
Create competitive differentiation
Improve or introduce automation
Extend device lifespan
Lower your data usage
Advance service quality by minimizing failures
Help prevent outages and theft, and more
