iMetrik M2M and Monnit Corporation announced today a partnership that will enable them to offer the Machine-To-Machine (M2M) market a plug-and-play, end-to-end, cellular enabled wireless sensing solution.
Using Monnit’s wireless sensors and iMonnit web application, and iMetrik’s M2M Cellular Gateway with global connectivity, users will benefit from a system that eliminates development time and reduces installation to an absolute minimum.
