Growth in Indian m2m communication market – Telit

Posted on: November 14, 2011

  • It’s the latest buzz word in mobile communications. Machine-to-Machine or M2M is referred to as a technology that enables both wireless and wired systems to communicate with a host of devices and applications, thereby making sense of the information relayed. This is accomplished through the use of telemetry, which is the language machines use when communicating with each other.
  • With a 850 million cellphone customer-base and home to some of the largest telcos in the world, new areas are opening up in the Indian telecom sector. Telit Communications, recently made its foray in the country by opening its India operations. The company is betting on the Indian M2M market and will market M2M modules which enable machines, devices and vehicles to communicate via wireless networks. Apart from telecom, M2M is expected to impact various verticals like automotive telematics, healthcare, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, point of sale, retail and other vertical. However, in the medium term beyond utilities and finance verticals, it is expected to grow in the tracking and security segments. A main draw in the M2M space is the 25 billion IP-connected devices by 2015, which has made companies like Cisco to jump into the M2M fray.
  • According to the independent wireless analyst firm Berg Insight, the number of M2M connections will grow to 187 million by 2014. Additionally, a study from the E-Plus Group showed that in 2010, 2.3 million M2M SIM-cards were available in the German market and this is slated to reach over 5 million SIM-cards in 2013.
