NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications Test and Monitoring Equipment Market
http://www.reportlinker.com/p01936266/Global-Machine-to-Machine-M2M-Communications-Test-and-Monitoring-Equipment-Market.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Electronic_Component_and_Semiconductor

Smart Homes, Telematics, and Healthcare Drive Demand for M2M Testing

M2M is a technology that allows 2 or more intelligent machines to communicate with each other without human intervention via a communication network. Once data is transmitted over the network, it is collected for analysis and assessed properly to extract essential information. M2M technology has been predominantly used in telematics applications. More recently, it has become important in applications such as smart grids, industrial automation, retail, healthcare, and consumer electronics. This research service provides the total global revenue forecast for the M2M test and monitoring equipment market, end-user analysis, geographic analysis, competitor profiles, and market share analysis for the key industry participants.

Key Findings

1. New, market-specific standards for M2M communications will require the test equipment manufacturers to all conform to the same regulations.
2. Test equipment manufacturers will gain more from M2M communications over cellular/wireless network, as there will be more applications that could be addressed through these networks, which leads to a boost in demand.
3. A new set of standards will lead to more conformance testing; meanwhile, functional testing and one-box testing will be required for M2M-capable devices. New nodes will be attached in the existing networks to enable M2M communications, which will lead to demand for installation and maintenance (I&M) segment.
4. Monitoring of the network for M2M communications is dependent on the type of end-user application.

CEO's Perspective

1. Scoring high on the price-performance front remains the key to a test equipment provider's growth.
2. North America is becoming an increasingly important market as it utilizes new technology. An increase in demand for test equipment is expected.
3. Test equipment vendors will have to maintain a rapid pace of product innovation and enhancement for increased success.
4. Test equipment needs to be customized to meet end-user needs.

Growth Factors for M2M Communications

1. Faster Decisions
In M2M communications, real-time flow of data helps to make decisions faster. The collected data is converted into useful information and then used for consequential actions.

2. Reduction in Service Times
The data from the machine or device can be accessed instantly; therefore, necessary service can be provided instantly.

3. New Usage-based Business Models
M2M technology is enabling a new business model wherein the user can be charged based on data usage volume.

4. Enhanced Operational Efficiency
M2M technology enables quick access to an asset. Alarms can be generated by the system during emergency situations or impending hazards.

5. Resource Saving
Proper use can be ensured by streamlining energy monitoring processes. An appropriate example of such an M2M application is in smart grids, where wastage of energy can be avoided.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
