Title: The impact of the machine-to-machine revolution

Abstract: Over the next 10 years there will be an explosion in the number of machine-to-machine (M2M) connected devices. Embedded connectivity will start to permeate more and more of our lives, from smart meters and pay-as-you-drive insurance to connected heart rate monitors and digital billboards. Jim's presentation will examine the opportunity for M2M, the barriers that it faces and the impact that 24 billion connected devices will have on the way we live and do business.
