Portable Design;Feb2006, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p22
The article focuses on the difficulties of obtaining certifications by design teams that permit deployments relevant to the use of portable machine-to-machine (M2M) application and attaching them to a radio modem in place of a cable. Key developments in M2M communications include radio frequency identification systems and wide-are networking for personal computers. M2M technology is applicable for transferring data, typically business information between a central network and human-operated computer systems. INSET: M2M connection options.
