"M2M has exceptional potential and is continuing to grow as mobile operators recognize the value of M2M users, who tend to maintain loyalty to services over the long term," said Yutaka Inoue, Department Manager, NEC Corporation. "NEC understands that M2M users are not only in need of mobile network connectivity, but also devices, M2M service platforms and vertical applications as well. This partnership will help mobile network operators to concentrate core-competencies and to capture revenue from the M2M market."
