Next steps for telcos in the connected devices ecosystem.

The rapid growth of connected devices represents a significant opportunity for telecom operators, and many are already making Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications a key focus of their future strategies. But there are significant challenges ahead. Mobile operators will need to adapt their pricing models in order to drive uptake of connected devices; and they will need to carefully manage multiple connection models as well as identifying their optimal role in a fragmented value chain, partnering with appropriate players.
