Frost & Sullivan: Emergence of SmartFrost & Sullivan: Emergence of Smart Manufacturing will Drive Demand for M2M Communication PR Newswire LONDON, Feb. 18, 2014 - Telcos expected to play an important role in ensuring a fully connected plant floor The manufacturing sector has traditionally implemented a range of wired networks to automate plant floor operations. However, emerging machine- to-machine (M2M) systems such as short-range wireless and long-range cellular networks are evolving into choice solutions for factories of the future. M2M systems can supplement or replace wired networks to enable advanced robotics and enterprise mobility on the plant floor, enabling convenient connectivity in inaccessible areas, communication across barriers, and simplified installation based on wireless local area, wide area, and sensor networks. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.ict.frost.com), M2M Communication in Manufacturing, finds that telecommunication companies (telcos) will be an important stakeholder in the provision of M2M solutions and the growth of the Internet of Things in the manufacturing sector in Europe. "Telcos' ability to offer enterprise-grade communication services integrated with plant-level communications is critical to reliable plant-level operations," said Frost & Sullivan Information and Communication Technologies Research Analyst Shuba Ramkumar.
