The machine-to-machine business is gaining attention as more and more enterprises see the benefits of incorporating wireless connectivity into their solutions. M2M customers are appealing to carriers because they are unlikely to churn and bring in a steady amount of revenue, even if they aren’t necessarily high-ARPU customers.
The time is right for competitive carriers to invest and grow their M2M business as many of the larger Tier 1 carriers have announced plans to sunset their 2G networks, leaving M2M customers looking for alternative operators to handle their business.
In this session, you’ll hear how competitive carriers can benefit from M2M, how M2M can strengthen the bottom line and what new opportunities are on the horizon.
