More importantly, he considers developments in machine-to-machine (M2M) central to this innovation.
We wholeheartedly agree. We have developed a dedicated SIM platform specifically for M2M applications to ensure that mobile operators (who, as Rob Conway says, are ‘a huge enabling force behind the connected lifestyle’) can be involved and lead the market.
M2M is also part of our offering, having acquired specialist in cellular M2M communication modules Cinterion, with the launch of the world’s smallest LGA (Land Grid Array) module for M2M solutions for use in small M2M devices such as personal tracking units and portable medical devices in the health sector.
Here’s to more innovation and more connected lifestyles. Who knows what else is yet to be announced in this field…
