Directory: M2M vendors in Asia

ZDNet's Asia directory of M2M vendors has market, product and contact information on companies that provide machine-to-machine (M2M) communication products and services.
Written by Jamie Yap, Contributor

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication can deliver remote monitoring and control in many areas, including buildings, the healthcare system, utility grids, supply chain logistics, the automotive industry, agriculture and more. This makes it a huge commercial opportunity for a variety of businesses, including mobile network operators, sensor makers and systems integrators.

This is not a paid listing, nor is it anything like an exhaustive list. It covers a number of leading vendors in the EMEA region that provide M2M services — ranging from devices to connectivity to full-scale systems integration.
