What is M2M?

M2M (Machine-to-Machine) communication enables remote monitoring and management of installations, equipment, and sensors. In order to communicate, these ‘devices’ are provided with an M2M simcard. The data is then read through 4/3/2 G and routed to the cloud. With M2M simcards you can make business processes and services more efficient, save costs and create new business models.

How exactly does it work?

With M2M communication, data is accessed from a ‘device’. A secure M2M simcard is placed in a ‘device’. The APN provided by us must be configured in the settings of the ‘device’. The intelligent M2M simcard then has access to the 4/3/2 G radio network of multiple networks. The ‘device’ can then establish a successful connection and is assigned an IP address.

What can I do with an M2M simcard management system?

A sim management system is a web-based environment in which all M2M simcards are clearly arranged together. M2M applications often involve monitoring and managing a few dozen to thousands of M2M simcards. Specific management platforms have been designed for this, which offer our customers the possibility to apply stock management, real-time insight and lifecycle management.

M2M Examples

Practical examples of customers who implement M2M simcards from Thingsdata for: remote reading of drinking water facilities worldwide, unlocking valuable data from energy monitoring systems in the Benelux, a 4G backup so that shops of retail organizations can continue in the event of a fixed internet connection failure, guaranteeing internet access for payments through vending machines.
