What is M2M?
M2M, or Machine to Machine, refers to the technologies making communication between industrial machinery, sensors, assets and us humans possible.
M2M communications are made possible using an intelligent sensor device embedded in a machine which captures data and transmits it wirelessly (or wired) to the CDLSmartHub application and your management systems.
