M2M Primed To Explode Say Nimans
Posted on September 18, 2014
Nimans is predicting an ‘explosion’ in Machine to Machine (M2M) sales and is urging resellers to ‘join the journey.’
“The key message around M2M is that we are seeing a shift from connecting people to
connecting things,” says Head of Network Services, Mark Curtis-Wood. “Our world is changing to a new digital revolution. There’s been a lot of talk about how the world is going to be connected and how the Internet of Things is going to explode. Away from the futuristic hype there is some real business substance behind some of these concepts.”
He continued: “Billions of devices are going to be connected – smart cities, homes, cars and lives. M2M is at the heart of this revolution. Solutions can be sold through many vertical markets and opportunities exist within pretty much all industries.”
Security, engineering, utilities and energy, vehicle fleets, vending machines and medicine are some of the many relevant sectors, according to Curtis-Wood.
He highlighted: “There are 7 billion people on the planet. In 2011 there were an estimated 9 billion connected devices with expected growth to reach at least 24 billion by 2020. That’s a $12 Trillion opportunity.
“90% of the world’s data was created in the last 2 years. There’s 25% year on year market growth and digital information, creation and sharing has grown 9 times in 5 years.
9,500,000 Trillion bytes are created every day. The figures are mindboggling and set to grow even more.”
He added: “The opportunity is huge and we want to enable our resellers to take advantage of this exciting new revenue stream. Our dedicated team of Account Managers are ready to show resellers how to register to start selling M2M and how we help them identify opportunities in their customer bases. They need to join us on the journey.”
