LONDON, July 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Intent on boosting revenue growth potential, telecommunication companies are tapping into Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications services. The upcoming Frost Sullivan's analyst briefing aims to place Telcos within the context of the M2M eco-system, and identify their unique role in the current M2M set-up and future Internet of Things evolution.

During the briefing, Yiru Zhong, Frost Sullivan Analyst for ICT in Europe, will look at M2M services from the Telco perspective, identifying some key potential opportunities. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, 28 July 2010, at 16.00 BST.

It has been a year since the flurry of Tier 1 M2M market entries were announced. In early 2009, Orange announced that it had acquired Mobile and Data as part of its M2M capabilities. In April, T-mobile revealed plans for smart metering services with Echelon, and in July, Vodafone unveiled its global M2M platform, says Yiru Zhong. Vodafone has revealed that, as of May 2010, they have installed 1m M2M devices in the UK. As so many Telcos have entered the fray over the course of the year, providing M2M services with different approaches and target markets, we believe there are enough examples to support analysis of some trends in the Telco approach towards enabling M2M operations.

The briefing will benefit telecommunication companies, M2M service technology providers, software application providers, device manufacturers, and also smartcard vendors.
