M2M solution providers invited to demonstrate best-in-class platforms at event on January 29 in Miami Beach
Norwalk, CT - November 20, 2012 - TMC (News - Alert) and Crossfire Media today announced the second Battle of the Platforms will take place at M2M Evolution Conference & Expo on January 29, aiming to bring together an exciting cross section of cutting-edge machine-to-machine (M2M) platforms. Vendors with solutions designed to improve business processes, minimize risk, spur innovation and drive revenue within the M2M ecosystem are urged to participate in the demonstrations. M2M Evolution Miami is collocated with ITEXPO Miami 2013, the world's largest and best-attended communications and technology trade show, and is held January 29 - February 1, 2013, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla.

The 2013 Battle of the Platforms is an opportunity for M2M application developers, wholesale service providers, enterprise IT managers and more to evaluate market-leading M2M solutions and determine which platforms are the best option for their own M2M projects.
M2M Evolution Miami is currently accepting participants to demonstrate solutions within the following categories:

  • Platforms for the Independent Applications Developer: Third parties utilizing APIs to manage information flow and connect to existing systems.
  • Platforms for Business Intelligence: Delivery of threshold and performance criteria in a manner that makes business decisions logical and simple.
  • Platforms for Wholesale Service Providers: Streamlined provisioning for rapid deployment.
  • Platforms for Enterprises: Enabling efficiency when management functions are separated from the physical location of equipment.
"Many network platforms claim to deliver best-in-class development and deployment times, scalability, reliability and more, but how often do buyers get the chance to evaluate these solutions head to head? Battle of the Platforms provides this valuable opportunity, and we look forward to working with the many innovative vendors leading the M2M industry," said Carl Ford (News - Alert), CEO at Crossfire Media and Demo Judge. "This event enables buyers to become more knowledgeable about implementation options and make intelligent purchases that are best for their specific business needs and goals."
