M2M companies form global alliance
M2M Group, an association of UK M2M companies, has announced its intent to provide complete end-to-end solutions for M2M projects on a global level. This alliance brings together specialists from diverse M2M sectors with knowledge and experience in delivery of Wireless Connectivity, Asset Management, Healthcare, Plant and Construction, Remote Monitoring of Oil & Gas, Digital Media, Smart Metering and key elements of Smart City infrastructure.
The increasing adoption of M2M services across these industries – the global M2M market is expected to grow 26.1% from 2012 to 2017 and be worth $85.96 billion by 2017* – means large corporate organisations, often spanning wide geographic regions, need reassurance that complex projects can be completed on time, on budget and to a high standard. The consolidation of ‘best in class’ M2M businesses from the UK offers customers this turnkey service.
Nigel Chadwick, Founding Director, M2M Group says, “Although the group is UK based our strategy is very much internationally focused. M2M companies from different sectors have often loosely collaborated together in the past but we realised this could be far more effective by combining resources and focusing on international market opportunities. By founding the M2M Group, and bringing a wide scope of proven expertise and services under one roof we can provide global customers with a seamless, high level M2M roll out, from concept through to implementation.”
Providing core network services to the M2M Group, Stream Communications is able to assist the delivery of a range of resilient and secure wireless network connectivity options across the globe, including private APN based infrastructures and management via OaSys, Stream’s leading network enablement platform.
