IoT M2M Council (IMC)
2014 United Kingdom Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) 18,000+ Open Membership Open website
The IMC is the largest and fastest-growing trade organisation in the IoT/M2M sector, with over 25,000 OEMs, enterprise users, and apps developers as members, and an average of 300 new members joining weekly. The IMC brings a new approach – it will increase deployments of IoT/M2M solutions by proving the business case of the technology to those that would adopter it. It will stand for connectivity as its own global industry, and will not see IoT/M2M technology through the narrow lens of technical standards or a single vertical industry. The IMC will support industry efforts to increase deployment volumes by offering members services that connect Solutions Providers with Adopters of IoT/M2M technology and meeting their evolving needs.
The IMC is comprised of companies providing solutions from all parts of the global Iot/M2M ecosystem as Sustaining Members. The organisation has brought together large-scale connectivity providers, more dedicated network operators, systems integrators, equipment manufacturers, and chipware maker giants.
IMC Adopter Members are qualified individuals that deploy IoT/M2M technology at companies as diverse as Fedex, Hyundai, Siemens Medical, Tata Group, Saudi Aramco, and the US Department of Defense. As of this writing, the IMC can claim to be the largest and fastest-growing IoT/M2M organisation in the world, with over 25,000 Adopter Members on four continents, and growing at a rate of 300 Adopters per week.
Says IMC Chairman Emeritus and Board Director at KORE Wireless, Alex Brisbourne, “The IMC serves a critical role in the IoT/M2M ecosystem. Never before has a group of M2M professionals spanning these disparate markets been assembled.”
