Internet of Things (IoT)
By combining these connected devices with automated systems, it is possible to gather information, analyse it and create an action to help someone with a particular task, or learn from a process.
The IoT allows devices on closed private internet connections to communicate with others and bring those networks together. It allows devices to communicate not only within closed silos, but across different networking types, creating a more connected world.
Machine to Machine (M2M)
Machine to Machine (M2M) communication enables the flow of data between multiple machines and ultimately, machines and people. In addition to data plans for mobile devices, V12 can provide plans for M2M devices, such as vending machines, vehicles or even heating units.
This technology allows both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same ability and it’s abundant in everyday life. For example, through this technology, a vending machine can connect to a route drive to notify it when it’s running low on supplies. Likewise, a car can remotely heat the interior 5 minutes before you leave to go to work in the morning.
Predating mobile voice communication, M2M technology is escalating in the business environment. By the end of 2018 there were an estimated 22 billion IoT connected devices in the world, forecasts predict that this is set to rise to an estimated 50 billion by 2030.
