Embedded with chips and sensors, objects have started to ‘think’, ‘feel’ and ‘talk’. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers a myriad of possible applications. Huawei is eager to harness the potential of this new evolution. The Internet of Things involves multiple forms of M2M communications – Machine to Machine, machine to man, man to machine, and machine to mobile. Considered the next big IT wave following computers, the internet and mobile communications, M2M makes the idea of a ‘smart planet’ a reality. Huawei is at the forefront of efforts to drive forward this new trend and create the right conditions to unleash its potential. The first European projects in this field are already underway.
