Telecom Operators Are Leaning Toward M2M Platform Control, Heavy Reading Finds

BOSTON, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Telecom operators can find opportunities in the machine-to-machine (M2M) platform market if they are able to lower costs, which many are finding they can do with in-house control of their M2M platforms, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Insider (, a subscription research service from Heavy Reading (

Managed M2M Platforms: Quick Fix vs. Long-Term Solution looks at the M2M platform providers that are developing (predominantly) managed propositions that support telecom operators to sell M2M services. It reviews the solutions they offer, their progress to-date and considers whether they are likely to be long-term partners for telecom operators. Finally, this report profiles 11 leading vendors in the market.

"Telecom operators have their eyes firmly set on winning M2M market share," says Simon Sherrington, research analyst with Heavy Reading Insider and author of the report. "While many telecom operators appear inclined to buy expertise from third parties in order to speed their market entry, there are some significant players not taking this path, and others may be planning to go it alone longer-term."

Telecom operators have the opportunity to grow new businesses in the M2M market; but to achieve this they must optimize and automate business processes to drive out cost, Sherrington says. "Managed, cloud-based M2M solutions offer telecom operators a swift means of entering the M2M market with services that cater for a wide range of different customers and industry sectors," he continues. "Ultimately, many of the biggest telecom operators will want end-to-end control of their M2M platforms, and we can expect to see more of them launching their own in-house platforms, despite their existing or imminent relationships with managed service providers."
