“Machine to Machine Communication (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly becoming an important market segment that can entail additional revenues for communication service providers and attract new types of customers – users of future telecom services. We believe that new business models like B2B and B2B2C ecosystems with multi-partner value chains and all-IP services can’t be managed in the old-fashioned style, typical for OSS/BSS silos. We invest a lot in R&D in the IoT domain, so it’s very important that our innovative approach to M2M connectivity management receives recognition from such a distinguished analyst company as Gartner.” – says Piotr Machnik, EVP, Product Management & Marketing, Telecommunications Business Unit.
