Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest M2M
Connections and Services by Vertical report, which
provides market size, analysis, and forecasts for machine-to-machine
(M2M) connections and services by technology, vertical, and geographic
M2M ANALYST NOTE
continues to gather momentum as enterprises, in the never-ending pursuit
of competitive advantage, seek to find new ways of using connected
technologies to improve business agility and lower operational costs,”
Chua, directing analyst for M2M and The Internet of Things at Infonetics
adds: “For service providers, there are significant and fast-growing
opportunities ahead. Specifically, cellular technologies are playing an
increasingly important role in enabling M2M services, comprising the
vast majority of WAN wireless M2M connections today, over 220 million,
and nearly tripling to just over 630 million connections by 2018.”
“Among the cellular generations, 2G and 3G are the majority currently,
but it’s LTE that will grow the fastest, starting from a small base and
then expanding rapidly, supported by efforts like AT&T/GM/OnStar
and other connected car initiatives, as well as China Mobile’s
massive LTE-TDD network rollout,” continues Chua.
M2M MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
The global market for M2M
services reached just over $16 billion in 2013, and there were nearly
1.7 billion M2M connections worldwide
A growing list of global tier 1 players are supporting more than 10
million M2M connections each
M2M “access” services—where operators’ broadband services function as
M2M access solutions—make up over 16% of M2M service revenue, around
80% of M2M devices in 2013 were connected via personal area network
(PAN) technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee
Global revenue from M2M services is forecast by Infonetics to grow at
an 18% CAGR
from 2013 to 2018
For technology vendors, it is increasingly important to build
networking solutions that take into consideration the architectural
requirements of the various M2M use cases that are proliferating, as
well as the portfolio of emerging connection technologies

Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
