WebNMS, a division of Zoho Corporation, and a leading global provider of network and element management solutions, today announced its foray into the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions space with the launch of ATM Site Manager, a revolutionary product for ATMs, developed in Chennai for the global banking industry.

Addressing a press conference here Mr Sudhakar S Marthi, Vice President, Sales and Marketing - APAC, Zoho Corporation and Prabhu Ramachandran, Director-WebNMS, said M2M technologies promise a future where machines would be connected through the internet and actively communicate, transmitting vital data to a central location.

"Each device must be equipped with a communication module or a sensor for data collection. The data generated from this communication allow enterprises to gain actionable insights and the two-way communication between machines eliminates the need for human intervention in many routine service operations", they said.

They said according to 6Wresearch, in a report titled India M2M Modules Market (2011-2016), the Indian M2M solutions market was expected to reach 98.38 million USD by 2016 with a CAGR of 33.81 per cent from the present USD 28 billion.

They said the ATM Site Manager would remotely monitor passive infrastructure like Air conditioners, Camera, Lighting systems, Battery banks, Door lock systems, across thousands of ATM sites and would generate actionable information in real time.

"The product is built on the WebNMS Framework, which is a highly scalable network management product, deployed more than 25,000 times for telecom service providers across the globe", they added.
