M2M (machine-to-machine) SIM cards per 100 inhabitants

Show all indicators of Access


Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications – which are composed of sensors for smart cities, agriculture, and manufacturing – are a part of the Internet of Things (IoT), which enables new business models, applications and services based on data collected from devices and objects. M2M penetration, measured as the number of M2M SIM cards on mobile networks per 100 inhabitants, provides a measure of this component of the IoT. The indicator reflects SIM cards assigned for use in machines and devices (e.g. cars, smart meters, consumer electronics) and that are not part of a consumer subscription.
