M2 M Transaction Gateway

  1. 1. Comarch M2M Transaction Gateway Introduction to M2M Machine-to-machine (M2M) traffic can provide additional revenue sources for operators struggling against reduced revenues from voice services. When compared to human-initiated traffic, individual M2M events contain a lesser amount of data, lower ARPU and reduced bandwidth requirements. The number of connectable machines is 5 times greater than the amount of humans (source: ETSI), and the number of machines currently connected is extremely low. Gartner predicts that the level of mobile M2M modules is growing at a rate of 28% CAGR up until 2011. As the level of M2M traffic grows and M2M devices become more common, the prices of individual M2M hardware components fall, boosting M2M popularity even further. An additional bonus for the M2M business originates from the falling prices of data services. Together these two issues render an increasing amount of M2M business cases viable – scenarios that a couple of years ago were deemed useless, due to the higher costs related to them. Comarch is able to offer support to companies looking to enter the M2M business, through providing the Comarch M2M Transaction Gateway, a tool capable of processing high amounts of data for charging and rating purposes, and which is suitable for multiple types of industries and business models.
