With the explosion of M2M and Internet of Things communications over the next 5–7 years, the opportunity for operators will be enormous. In seeking to take advantage of these opportunities, operators should exercise caution when running M2M services over their current data service platforms. Adapting existing consumer handset optimized systems for M2M services will likely result in sub-optimal business results and limit an operator’s appetite for addressing the whole M2M opportunity on the cusp of explosive growth opportunity. With low average revenue per unit (ARPU) contracts, widely varying rate plan needs, and deep support demands, all but the highest paying M2M solutions can be a difficult fit for the network systems and processes of today’s consumer handset voice and data service providers.
