  7. 7. 7 M2M Communications – Market Forecasts (U.S.) M2M connections on cellular networks in the United States to approach 70 million in 2018. These figures do not include laptops, netbooks, notebooks and tablets, which would be in tens of millions as well . Top three categories by connections will likely be Transportation and Telematics, Utilities and Industrial, and Consumer M2M. In many cases, a single endpoint (such as a rugged router) will support a large number of other connected devices. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis

  9. 9. 9 M2M Communications – Other Key Highlights 5 6 2 Tiered pricing for high-bandwidth M2M applications to become prevalent Greater focus on M2M security Increasing importance of M2M cloud platforms 1 Faster transition of M2M to LTE – primarily due to closure of 2G networks 3 Convergence of M2M, MDM, BYOD, Mobile Computing, and Remote Access 4 Data access pricing techniques used to promote network adoption Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis
  10. 10. 10 M2M Communications – Push to a “Social” Enterprise •Frost & Sullivan‟s research indicates that businesses prefer integrated enterprise software applications that provide a unified view of their entire connected base – including connected employees, connected customers, connected partners, and connected products. •From a customer experience perspective, helping organizations migrate from “reactive” customer care (which is the case currently) to “proactive” and “preventative” customer care is the ultimate goal of such converged deployments. •With so much “big data” generated by connected machines, using proper data management platforms to help with data analysis and data sharing is important. •Real-time decision making based on machine data can help with new product innovation, and deliver better up-sell and cross-sell opportunities. The M2M industry is poised to support innovative applications that can be plugged into various enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.
  11. 11. 11 M2M Communications – Market Forecasts for Europe(continued…) M2M connections on cellular networks in Europe to approach 280 million in 2018. These figures do not include laptops, netbooks, notebooks and tablets, which would be in tens of millions as well . Top three categories by connections will likely be Automotive & Telematics, Utilities and Industrial, and Consumer M2M. In many cases, a single endpoint (such as a rugged router) will support a large number of other connected devices. Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis
  12. 12. 12 M2M Communications – Market Forecasts for Europe At the end 2012, these top three by volumes are : 1. Automotive & Telematics 2. Utilities 3. Security/Surveillance By 2018, these top three by volumes are : 1. Automotive & Telematics 2. Utilities 3. Industrial Automation Verticals targeted for the next growth phase: 1. Industrial automation 2. Consumer electronics 3. Healthcare Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis Automotive & Telematics Utilities Industrial Automation
  13. 13. 13 M2M Communications – Market Progress from Europe’s Perspectives 5 6 2 Holistic views on M2M security across a “connected” community mindset Applications enablement as one of several key differentiators for M2M service providers Product horizontalization continues with a watchful eye on margins 1 Strategy refinement to present a credible client facing front to capture the next level of M2M opportunities 3 Moving from proof of concepts to deployments 4 Rise of the “alliances” ala global roaming alliances Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis
  14. 14. 14 M2M Communications – Outlook from Europe’s Perspectives • Frost & Sullivan‟s research indicates that there is currently significant interest among European M2M service providers in acquiring the capabilities around applications or service enablement. They recognize this as the important next step to widen their in-house capability to meet their enterprise customers‟ requirements. • Security around applications design, deployment and integration will also become a differentiating feature for M2M service providers. • Extensions into “smart cities” projects will create clusters of industry knowhow and deployment best practices. These in turn will be strong accelerators for the next phase of market growth The M2M Market in Europe is still in the growth phase on the product life cycle but some market leaders can already be identified as key enablers in the sector
