ENABLING SMART SERVICES:
The challenge of the M2M community

Ken,

CatNet Systems How are you? As promised, here is a description of our most recent white paper. In an attempt to create awareness about M2M in the North American market we have highlighted 40 small innovators working to further M2M technologies and services. The link below takes you to a page we have built on a new portal. The page has the FocalPoint 40 list of companies and a link to a 26 page primer in which we discuss M2M, cite some recent research, and share profiles on 15 of the 40 companies. The primer is big (1MB) so I thought it best not to attach it to this e-mail. Please let me know if you have any trouble downloading it.
