IOT vs M2M – What’s good for your Business?
There is a lot of buzz and confusion in the market with IOT & machine-to-machine (M2M) being used interchangeably in common discourse. This confusion is created because both IOT and M2M solutions have ‘remote device access’ in common. However, the difference lies in the manner IOT and M2M approach remote devices. Conventionally, M2M solutions rely on point-to-point (P2P) communications with embedded hardware modules (added cost) to communicate with remote devices. Whereas, IoT solutions are built on IP-based networks which ensure easy integration of device data to a cloud or middleware platform. As IOT by definition is reliant more on Software than Hardware, it is seen as a universal enabler and a preferred choice for enterprises.
