Exactly a week is left before one of the main events in the world of M2M-technologies – M2M Evolution & Expo, which will be held from January 29 to February 1, 2013 in Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida. The conference has already become a leading educational event, meant to inform and educate the audience of the latest and greatest technologies, new vertical markets, new applications and other urgent issues of M2M technologies development. This year, after a huge success of a similar show in Austin, the conference will start with the second Battle of the Platforms, which represents an exciting opportunity to hear and see cutting edge platform solutions of leading software development companies from all over the world.
Machine-to-Machine technologies have changed greatly due to the common availability of wireless Internet technologies. In the result, currently, the network platforms are replacing stand alone vertical-specific solutions. In addition, due to the cloud technology, making possible to deliver solutions across international boundaries, M2M solutions need no longer be carrier specific or geographically dependent. That’s why we have seen the rise of platforms as a way to manage and deliver M2M solutions to a host of opportunities including transportation, logistics, telematics, medical, smart grid, cold chain, etc.
This pre-conference show, gathering independent M2M application developers, service providers, looking to support wholesale services, enterprise managers, trying to understand what solutions to deploy internally, as well as anyone who is interested in finding out what the current market can offer in the sphere of M2M network platforms, provides the access to an excellent cross section of solutions, in a short amount of time and all in one location.
M2M market leading platform developers, including Gurtam, will present their software solutions and emphasize the advantages and benefits they have in front of the audience and a panel of judges that includes such renowned names as James Brehm (Compass) and Carl Ford (Crossfire Media). Having observed all the presented solutions, the attendees then can take reasonable decision which solution meets their needs the best and which company to they should follow.
