Trade Association for the Internet of Things Gains Hundreds of Members in Just One Month
Source: "The International M2M Council – a new trade group for the Internet of Things, also called machine-to-machine communications – has gained over 500 new members in the last month, illustrating the need for industry leadership in the sector.
