What is M2M?

Machine-to-machine, or M2M, is a broad label that can be used to describe any technology that enables networked devices to exchange information and perform actions without the manual assistance of humans. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) facilitate the communication between systems, allowing them to make their own autonomous choice.

What is IoT?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

What are the differences between M2M and IoT?

There is a lot of confusion between IoT and M2M, as both refer to communicating and sharing data. M2M is about machines, smartphones and appliances, whereas the IoT is about sensors, cyber-based physical systems, Internet and so on.
