The article discusses some of the hurdles that wireless machine communications need to overcome. It is mentioned that machine-to-machine (M2M) communications brings the promise of a future in which machine maintenance will rarely require a human presence. The author points out that there is an abundance of hardware and services for this market but according to suppliers, there is a lack of public awareness of the market, dominant standards and trade groups to guide the M2M industry.
