Telstra M2M - Machine-2-Machine

What is M2M?

Machine-2-Machine (M2M) data transfer can make your business far more efficient. M2M is about sending business-critical information from sensors, meters or cameras in realtime to the business programs that need it. M2M allows you to send all kinds of condition or event data (such as temperature, inventory level, etc.), via a wireless network to a central business application (software program). Your application then translates the captured event information into meaningful information and action (for example, items need to be restocked).

With M2M solutions, you can make your organisation leaner and reduce inventories. And because the information is passed in realtime into your ERP software, your processes become faster and more intelligent.

Benefits include:

  • Cost and Service Time Reduction
  • Customer Relationship Building
  • Increased Sales
  • Differential Product Offerings
  • Better Customer Experiences
  • Improved Information
  • Additional revenues from value-based services and new business.
