Here’s why: It is relevant to nearly every sector and used by everyone from the oil and gas industry to private home owners.

And it’s about to get bigger because 1) the cost of sensors used to make M2M possible has fallen so much that they are BEYOND commercially viable; and 2) wireless networks are now cheap and everywhere.
