Key to the way mobile M2M will develop is the direction taken by the SIM. It’s played a key role in connecting people but it arguably needs to change if it’s really going to tackle ‘things’. How should the SIM evolve – should it become completely soft? How should it be regulated on a global basis? Should non-telcos continue to be admitted to the fold? What are the dangers inherent in moving away from the SIM model we have at the moment.

Completely agree with the panel. It is still early to push for standard M2M Protocols.
We have to solve the M2M puzzle first keeping 3Cs in mind:
- Creating solutions that make sense for Customers by Customizing them across verticals.
- Collaboration for partners and an evolved M2M Ecosystem
- Connectivity for the networked society of tomorrow
