M2M

M2M

M2M is an acronym for machine-to-machine communications but might be better described as device services, ie, management of devices for industrial applications such as one might imagine in manufacturing, mining and agriculture. Of course there are government and household applications as well. Another name is the Internet of things.

Machines might talk directly to each other through bluetooth or personal area networks but industrial applications would normally use cloud service platforms for data collection, device control and service management.
