The GSMA Connected Living programme is an initiative to help operators add value and accelerate the delivery of new connected devices and services in the Machine to Machine (M2M) market. This is to be achieved by industry collaboration, appropriate regulation, optimising networks as well as developing key enablers to support the growth of M2M in the immediate future and the Internet of Things (IoT) in the longer term.
Our vision is to enable the IoT, a world in which consumers and businesses enjoy rich new services, connected by an intelligent and secure mobile network.
