Mobile network operators are still in the early stages of exploiting the cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) market opportunity, and there is still a great deal of on-going experimentation with platforms, pricing, partnerships and overall go-to-market strategies. Still, IHS is projecting revenue from cellular M2M connectivity services to grow by nearly 13 percent a year to reach $17.0 billion by 2017 as mobile network operators (MNOs) develop new business models and introduce new services and infrastructure for this burgeoning market. Join IHS Senior Principal Analyst Sam Lucero for a presentation and discussion around the cellular M2M market drivers and challenges and the organizational changes and platform strategies being developed by MNOs. Lucero will provide detailed forecasts for both services and equipment and address the opportunities and challenges MNOs and their value-chain partners face as they evolve solutions to meet the explosive demand for M2M connectivity. Wherever your company sits in the M2M value chain-from component maker to OEM to MNO-this webinar will provide valuable insight into the trends that are impacting your business and shaping the future of the cellular M2M market. The presentations will be followed by a live audience discussion with Lucero led by Moderator Bruce Rayner, editorial director of Electronics360. The discussion offers an opportunity for the audience to engage directly with the presenter. Please join us live for this important and timely webinar.
