Introduction
This Frost & Sullivan research service on the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications market presents an analysis of the key market trends and opportunities in the connected machines space in the United States. It amends and updates the 2013 study on the same topic. M2M connections can be used across wireless and wireline domains, and connectivity for deployed endpoints can be provided via cellular or mobile, satellite, wireline or Internet, and other private and public telecommunication networks. Additionally, both short- and longrange access technologies can be leveraged to provide M2M connectivity.

This study focuses on the cellular M2M connectivity space in the United States and identifies the market opportunity from a cellular-enabled connected devices perspective only. Throughout this study, the terms "M2M" and "cellular M2M"; "cellular" and "mobile"; "operators", "mobile operators", "cellular operators", and "mobile network operators (MNOs)" are used interchangeably.
