This special report is dedicated to discussing some of the common barriers to entry and challenges that companies like yours face when beginning to research, evaluate, and deploy an M2M (machine-to-machine) solution. The reason I chose to discuss the obstacles here instead of the benefits is twofold — first, we’ve done a lot of coverage on the benefits of M2M, and you can find a lot of M2M success stories at www.FieldTechnologiesOnline.com. But more importantly, I wanted to dive into some of the hurdles that come along with the technology because when I talk to members of our audience, they often tell me that learning what challenges they’ll face or mistakes to avoid is especially valuable information. So the idea here is to give you some insight on common M2M barriers and challenges so that you can work through those issues toward M2M success.
