M2M is dead!

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication refers to the ability of devices and machines to communicate with one another without the need for human intervention. While M2M technology has been around for several decades, there is a growing belief among some experts that it is no longer a viable or relevant concept. Some of the reasons for this include the emergence of more advanced technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G networks, that have made M2M communication obsolete, as well as the lack of standardization and security concerns that have plagued M2M systems. Additionally, the cost of implementing M2M systems can be prohibitively high, making it a less attractive option for many businesses and organizations. Overall, while M2M communication has been an important step in the evolution of connected devices, it is now considered to be an outdated concept that has been surpassed by newer and more advanced technologies.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G networks are two technologies that have largely replaced M2M communication.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices, vehicles, buildings, and other objects embedded with sensors, software, and connectivity, which enables these physical objects to collect and exchange data. IoT enables a wide range of applications and services that would be difficult or impossible to achieve using M2M alone, such as smart home automation, connected cars, remote medical monitoring, and industrial automation. IoT devices can be connected to the internet, allowing them to communicate with other devices and systems, and can also be controlled remotely, making it possible to automate many tasks.

5G networks, the fifth-generation cellular network technology, is designed to provide faster internet speeds, lower latency, and more efficient data transfer. 5G networks can support more devices and handle more data traffic than previous generations, making it possible to connect more devices and systems to the internet. Additionally, 5G networks are designed to support new use cases, such as connected vehicles and remote surgery, which would not be possible with 4G or earlier networks.

Both IoT and 5G networks have expanded the capabilities of connected devices and systems, making M2M communication less relevant. The increased connectivity and processing power provided by these technologies have enabled new applications and services that would be difficult or impossible to achieve using M2M alone.
