Challenge: Keeping costs down and reliability up.
From automated transactions at DVD kiosks to remote energy-meter reading, success with M2M depends on easy low-cost installation and reliable day-to-day operations. The need for a wireless alternative. Sure, you can get a wired network into some M2M-IoT environments, but it’ll cost you, and in some places, like most retail kiosks, a wired connection isn’t even possible.
The need for a reliable solution: Just one incident of unreliability can undermine the whole cost advantage of M2M. Consider the cost to a retail installation if it goes offline and can’t process credit card transactions in real time.
The need to scale: 3G has its limits, especially as demand for M2M grows. To ensure long-term reliable service, carriers must be able to support more connections than 3G can currently handle.
