In an interview with Telecoms.com’s Mobile Communications International magazine, Jean-Rene Bouvier, head of Buzzinbees, explains the risks involved in machine-to-machine (M₂M) as the connected world concept becomes a reality.
With the number of connections increasing exponentially, the M₂M market looks promising. Nevertheless, operators face several hurdles to turn this opportunity into a profitable market.
Mobile operators now provide the most ubiquitous connectivity, but their networks are already saturated by mobile penetration rates often in excess of 100% and they are not ready to cope with the additional M₂M connectivity burden. Additionally, with M₂M ARPU being a fraction of that of mobile subscribers, operators have limited motivation to improve their infrastructure.
To remain a key player in the M₂M communication space, operators need to reduce costs and better manage device connectivity. Unless they do so, M₂M communication could shift to less-convenient but more-affordable means of communication. Therefore, the operators must build a successful ecosystem that helps reduce costs. Buzzinbees offers a key play in that ecosystem.

Buzzinbees’s network elements provide or enhance 2.5G, 3G, and 4G networks with critical capabilities.
