In the context of this white paper from Informa Telecoms & Media, telematics, telemetry and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and systems are all considered to form part of wireless automation. This paper addresses applications of wireless technologies for telemetry and machine-to-machine-to-machine communications. This paper describes many of the new narrowband and wideband technologies and how each of them can be competitive and complementary, depending on needs and requirements of groups of end users. Each can be used alone or in combination with others to produce the desired end results, and each will offer special advantages in different circumstances.
