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.
The two conference sessions addressed questions about enterprise applications in the exploding field of M2M, or the Internet of Things. Moderated by Beecham Research CEO Robin Duke-Woolley, the sessions covered topics such as Long Term Connectivity, Small Vs Large Deployments, and Customer Service.

Three of the UK’s mobile network operators have signed up to a government-brokered agreement to work towards scrapping the ‘roaming’ charges that customers pay when using their phones abroad.
Authorities say they will work with Ofcom, the UK telecoms regulatory, and the industry to develop a “UK government position for on-going negotiations in the EU that will help us achieve the goal of eliminating roaming charges within the EU by 2016”.
The M2M modules market is on the verge of a dramatic shift caused by the rising adoption and falling prices of LTE technology, according to a new study from Machina Research.
According to the research, LTE modules will account for more than two thirds of all modules shipped for use in wireless wide area networks in 2022, up from just 0.5% in 2013, as the initial wave of LTE migration transforms markets in the US, Japan, South Korea, China and parts of Europe.
Vodafone Qatar has become the latest operator to form a strategic partnership with M2M device maker NetComm Wireless.
The deal comes just weeks after NetComm (Sydney, Australia) announced partnerships with Verizon Wireless (New York City, NY) in the US and Etisalat (Abu Dhabi) in the United Arab Emirates, and is aimed at helping Vodafone Qatar (Doha, Qatar) develop a portfolio of smart-city applications, including security systems, intelligent transport systems, smart metering and smart medical devices.
M2M module maker Telit has said it will collaborate with France’s Sigfox on the development of a cellular network dedicated solely to ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) services.
Based in France, Sigfox (Toulouse, France) has patented a technology called Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) and is in the process of rolling out a global cellular network that uses this standard to support M2M services.
Sigfox relies on unlicensed spectrum and needs few antennas to provide coverage, allowing it to dramatically reduce power consumption and maintenance costs.
China's anti-trust investigation into Qualcomm, the world's biggest smartphone chip maker, is likely tied to the impending $16 billion rollout of commercial fourth-generation services by China's big telecoms carriers.
The probe by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), China's top economic planning body and price regulator, is a likely pre-emptive measure that will allow China's telecom providers to gain leverage in royalty negotiations ahead of the rollout of new high-speed mobile networks, analysts said.
Sweden-based Tele2 has announced its launch of a global M2M business, saying its aim is to become a competitive player in the international market.
The operator provided few details about the focus and features of its M2M offering but said it planned to concentrate on the markets of Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands in the first instance.
However, the operator was quick to point out that Tele2 (Stockholm, Sweden) M2M Global Solutions – as it brands the new business – is already able to serve customers globally.
