But their enthusiasm isn't just wishful thinking. Without exception market forecasts show incredible growth. But "M2M" isn't a product or even a service that channel partners can sell. It's a combination of sensors and devices, connectivity, management platforms, analytics and vertical applications from disparate sources – all requiring professional services to design and deliver. This Pulse Digital Issue will take a look at the M2M ecosystem and the opportunities for solutions providers to play a role.
