The Big Conversation: M2M and Internet of things – do we need a catch-all?
TelecomTV asks “What’s the difference between M2M and the Internet of Things?” Digi’s CTO, Joel Young and other experts help answer the question.
Joel Young explains how “M2M” and the “Internet of Things” do not acuurately describe the mission of improving the way businesses operate. “We’re not trying to create a new market, we’re just trying to solve business problems and make all of our businesses operate better. You have to start off with a real compelling business reason to deploy a connectivity solution. Once that solution is deployed and you have the connectivity in place, then you can look at other opportunities and other ways to leverage that connectivity for new exciting applications and solutions.”
