InterDigital is a leading developer of fundamental enabling technologies for standards-based wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, helping create a common framework and roadmap for cellular operators, service providers and device manufacturers.
The technology centers around a standardized service layer and application programming interfaces (APIs) that are independent and aware of both networks and applications, allowing cellular operators and service providers to fully enable the potential of M2M business applications – ranging from remote monitoring and control to e-health, smart transportation, and intelligent homes – changing the way people live, work and play.
Since the establishment of the ETSI TC M2M committee in January 2009, InterDigital has made numerous a contributions to the standardization process while building pioneering prototypes and demonstrations along the way. The company also played a central role in coordinating and integrating the hardware and software platforms for the multi-faceted demonstrations and field testing –critical milestones towards building an open and scalable M2M ecosystem across multiple vertical markets on a global scale.

Furthermore, operators can now play a key role in accelerating M2M growth through offering streamlined turnkey packages that leverage their strength and expertise in network management, customization, and billing and location services.
