Talk:Machine to machine
I would like to add all or part of the following to the article:
"The term "M2M" was used by a development team at MCI in 1993. This may be the first use of the term under the specific meaning of "Machine to Machine". The team was responsible for developing the architecture, design, and deployment of the first IP routed Operations Administration Maintenance and Provisioning (OAMP) data network for a telecommunications transmission network in the world. The network was called SONET Optical Network Monitoring (SONM). The SONM team was made up of Ross Harden, Roy Bynum, Stayton Swanberg, and others. The term "M2M' was used to distinguish the type of data traffic that the SONM network was to be restricted to as Machine to Machine. No "people" (P2P, P2M, M2P) type of traffic was to be allowed on the SONM network. The SONM network was "6 9's", meaning that it achieved a reliability of 99.9999% over a year's time, which was one of, if not the best record of any data network in 1994/5."
Not all of this material is directly related to the term "M2M" but it does provide a context for the origin of the term.

The site is open for your discussion. Very good article and lots of potintial ideas can be manufactored in here
I would like to know if I can add a section on the page for suppliers. I would also like to know how to go about putting an entry in the wikipedia for a supplier company the way Allen Bradley has a supplier page on Programmable Logic controllers. I don't want to be labeled as spam. I would like to know how to go about this. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MariaSantella (talk • contribs) 18:00, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

This page needs a lot of work: 1) I worked on M2M systems in the 1980's, we didn't call it M2M back then but the systems were Machines (remotely) communicating with/controlling other machines so the idea that this started around 2000 is absurd. Also, I'm sure it predates my work in the 80's. 2) There is a lot of advertising on the page. I am still in the business and don't appreciate my competitors using wikipedia as an advertising platform. Can we get a neutral party to remove all company names - if somebody is interested in finding them a quick internet search will quickly find all the players. 3) After number 2 there isn't any real content left on the page, so maybe it should just be deleted. ny4jb (talk) 21:50, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
Agreed! There are a lot of disjointed references to various companies and partnerships that don't seem to add any value. In fact, some of the biggest players in the cellular M2M industry today aren't even mentioned at all. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:03, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
