Telecommunication Engineering Centre has introduced its report on M2M

NEW DELHI, INDIA: The Government of India under the initiative of Department of Telecommunication(DoT) and TEC has created the guidelines of M2M Communications.

In the conference held in Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, Telecommunication Engineering Centre with contribution from Smart24x7, introduced its report on M2M communications and claimed that this innovation would certainly change the way humans live.

According to the report, DoT would contribute in policy making and setting up of safety standards in India. These guidelines are very much instrumental and are used in the smart cities where wearable and the others safety and security applications and appliances are getting used in homes to standardised the behaviour of the devices as well as the responses provided to the victims.

The devices and solutions to be used should be scalable and work on the pre-defined standards, so that new devices and solutions can be integrated with ease.

CP Singh, the Founder of Smart Group, “Safety and security is paramount, and the government has taken various initiatives to safeguard its citizens. Safety & surveillance ensures a safe and secure environment, not just limited to video surveillance, emergency response, and technology enabled smart premise. Safety and security M2M applications are relevant to all of the domains such as home, medical and industrial. M2M has dramatically expanded the scope of available home security and safety products”.

In order to understand the working of the platform, M2M these are certain understandings that have been provided by CP Singh that would no doubt enable us to know the platform better.

What is M2M Communication?

It refers to the technologies that allow wired / wireless system to communicate with the devices of same ability. M2M uses a device (sensor, meter etc.) to capture an ‘event’ (motion, video, meter reading, temperature etc.), which is relayed through a network (wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program), that translates the captured event into meaningful information.

What is the Need of M2M Communication in Safety & Surveillance?

India has 129 police officers for every 100000 citizens. According to a UN report, the worldwide average is close to 350 officers per 100,000 citizens. 1 This translates equipping officers with the right technology to manage the massive population of 1.2 billion of the country.

Where all this innovation can be used?

Safety and surveillance finds its application in the following verticals like vehicles with video surveillance and vehicle tracking systems. It can be used for women/citizen safety using smartphone/wearable devices. The user can be in city-wide video surveillance systems. One of the usages can be in Video surveillance for banks, ATM, jewellery stores, and other establishments. Local smart home wireless networks for home security. Citizen response management system (CRMS) can also take advantage of the communication.

Will it be helpful in decreasing the crime rates in India?

Smart phones and Cloud based M2M, if integrated with existing databases of safety & security agencies over the API’s, may help identify the suspect against the criminal or terrorist activity. The identification might be done by comparing the images of crime or the free flow text describing the crime scene.
