M2M/IoT implies that machines send information to one another using SIM cards and without the direct involvement of human interaction. These signals aim to control a process or tell a machine to perform a certain action. M2M/IoT is currently one of the fastest-growing business segment in technology.

The partnership between L&T Technology Services, an engineering services major and Tele2 holds a great potential for the transportation market including Auto, Aero, Rail, Shipping and Off Highway and specialized vehicles. For example, it offers solutions that would allow passengers to keep updated regarding departures and arrival times as well as delays. Another area include remote monitoring of engine performance. Data can be collected automatically and show when it is time for maintenance and thereby reduce the risk of damage to the engines.
