It’s hard to believe that the social media hype could ever be matched. However, the ubiquity that social media has in today’s world could soon apply to M2M. The integration of social media and machine to machine technology is developing fast.
Much of M2M is about efficiency and savings. Today, to celebrate World Savings Day, we wanted to explain some of the actual cases that show that this technology stopped being the future to become the present. Smart systems can save gas, electricity, fuel, time, water, what at last is always also a money saving.
We spoke with Angel David García Barrio, Head of Alliances & New Business, Global M2M, Telefónica Digital, and David Vellender, Head of M2M Business Development UK & Ireland and Commercial Partnerships, to shed some light into Telefónica’s strategy when it comes to deal with partners and establish alliances.
Starting in 2015, all the europeans will be able to enjoy the benefits of M2M technology designed to take care of us on the road. According to the report of the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection, passed last june 19th, every new car sold in the EU, will be required to have the eCall emergency system installed.
