M2M Project:

As traditional cellular accesses (i.e. one wireless handset per customer) approaches saturation, a new wave of wireless connections is emerging that will push device penetration well beyond 100%.  Emerging device types vary widely, including meters, sensors, modems, PC tablets, GPS receivers, cars and household appliances.

Machine to machine (M2M) refers to technologies that allow both wireless and wired systems to communicate with other devices of the same type. M2M can include the case of industrial instrumentation – where a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event (such as temperature, inventory level, etc.), which is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program), that translates the captured event into meaningful information (for example, items need to be restocked). Modern M2M communication has expanded beyond a one-to-one connection and changed into a system of networks that transmits data to personal appliances.

The M2M project will establish a machine to machine product offering with the required sale, provisioning, fulfillment, billing and assurance delivery systems and processes, to enable seamless delivery of the product to SaskTel Telecommunication customers.
