The M2M Zone Pavilion at CeBIT is a single space in which network operators, application designers, hardware manufacturers, and end-users of Machine-to-Machine communication technology congregate to make a dynamic presence. By working and showcasing in one designated area, people most interested in your products and services can find you easily and conveniently. This is especially critical at a massive trade event like CeBIT, which draws audience from important-but-disparate M2M vertical markets like automotive, energy, and healthcare.
Join the M2M Zone in Las Vegas, at CTIA, September 9-11, 2014. TheM2M Zone Pavilion at CTIA is the catalyst to the embedded systems community to gather knowledgeable and up-to-date information. From telematics to smart grid to telehealth, the M2M Zone understands that machine-to-machine technologies stretch across multiple industries to create a dynamic M2M eco-system.

Backaul of 3G and LTE macrocell traffic is one of the largest problems--and opportunities--in telecom. The world has gone mobile and is “going video”, and the future presents major obstacles. Demands of traffic growth, video applications, and mobility for workplace applications must be fit into limited, finite spectrum—the only viable solution is to multiply the use of that spectrum by introducing outdoor and in-building small cells, for 3G and LTE.
This conference briefed telecom and enterprise executives on current trends revolving around the explosive growth in machine-to-machine communications (M2M). Three panel sessions explored major current issues, including security for embedded devices, M2M in social networks, and the integration of M2M deployments with backbone ERP software.

Some of the same elements that have given rise to the M2M industry boom have also enabled a variety of new security threats. In this webinar we will discuss the latest security solutions in M2M. Case studies and trends for the future in M2M Security will be presented as well.
France’s Bouygues Telecom has responded to pricing pressure from rival Iliad by saying that its 4G services will be available to existing customers at no extra cost.
The announcement comes just days after Iliad (Paris, France) upped the competitive stakes by publishing details of new low-cost 4G services, revealing that customers would be able to make use of the super-fast technology for as little €19.99 ($27.15) a month.
Existing Bouygues (Paris, France) subscribers will be able to use 4G services without signing up to a new minimum term contract, says the operator.
Huawei held on to its number-one spot in the global market for radio access networks in the third quarter of 2013, with Alcatel-Lucent overtaking Nokia Siemens Networks to claim third place in the rankings, according to ABI Research.

France’s Iliad has made clear that it plans to continue being a thorn in the side of the country’s incumbent operators by unveiling a range of low-cost tariffs for its new 4G service.
The operator says a 4G service will now be available to consumers for as little as €19.99 ($27.15) a month, or €15.99 for customers who already subscribe to its internet services.
The tariff includes 20GB of monthly data usage and Iliad claims its price is just a fifth of fees being charged by rivals for a comparable service.
