Berg Insight says 186 million machines will be connected to mobile networks in 2012

Gothenburg, Sweden – May 06 2008: According to new a research report from
the analyst firm Berg Insight, the number of cellular network connections
used for machine-to-machine communication will grow from 37.5 million
connections in 2007 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 37.9 percent
to 186 million connections in 2012. GSM and legacy technologies currently
dominate the market and accounted for about 71 percent of the total number
of active connections at the end of 2007. CDMA was the second largest
technology with a strong foothold in North America and parts of
Asia-Pacific. WCDMA has so far primarily been adopted for machine-to-machine
applications in Japan. Elsewhere the adoption is held back by high component
costs and limited network coverage.
