Increased demand for M2M in consumer electronics
M2M systems were mainly used by businesses and public organizations, but now they are used more widely in smart homes, different fitness gadgets, for tracking goods and assets, and in the entertainment sector. As new technologies and IoT ecosystem evolve, gadgets and devices will be affordable for everyone.
“IoT allows entertainment gadgets to be constantly connected to the Internet, which means that the users can access all types of media and up-to-date content. Thus, a huge number of gadgets and devices being used in conjunction with the Internet for easy data transmission leads to more security breaches,” according to Amit.
Increase in the number of cyberattacks on M2M networks
With the expansion of digital lives and M2M solutions at a faster pace, an urgent need has emerged to secure these solutions and ensure the privacy and integrity of the data they communicate. Cyberattacks in the M2M space have been low because of the lack of intelligence about the networks.
The rise in end-to-end communication from modules to management platforms is increasing the probability of M2M networks being hacked. This increases the importance of network security products with customers becoming more aware and conscious of potential cyberattacks.
Enhanced healthcare facilities with introduction of M2M
M2M applications are being used extensively in the healthcare sector because they facilitate efficient management of patient information and provide improved medical facilities. In India, Bangalore-based Manipal Hospitals give pregnant women a wearable device that is paired with a cellphone application.
Frequent real-time monitoring offered by smart devices reduces the need for patients to visit clinics. Hospitals have central monitoring systems for nurses, which give them a real-time overview of patients and their health statistics. Regular use of wearable devices by patients enables early intervention by doctors.
