M2M-This application or system is surely to bring in benefits to both the network operators and vendors. Vendors make the profit from developer kits, by selling m2m capable devices and the network expansion brought about by increased throughput.

However all these come in a change in the value chain and business model. The role of operators is questioned due to this. There might also be services which have specific characteristics than others which may include human intervention. However standardization of these services will lead for a better m2m communications.
