Keeping in view the exponential evolution in the digital space and the growing importance of machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity, TRAI has issued a consultation paper on the matter inviting views from stakeholders.Written comments on the consultation paper - Spectrum, Roaming and QoS (quality of services) related requirements in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications - are invited from the stakeholders by November 15 and counter-comments by November 29, 2016.

DoT sought the recommendations of TRAI on three aspects related to M2M communications: M2M spectrum requirements; M2M roaming requirements; and quality of service in M2M services. Apart from the specific issues referred by DoT through the reference, the authority realized that certain other regulatory aspects, including policy and licensing framework for M2M service providers, various technical challenges in implementation, allocation and utilization of various network codes, data protection, and privacy issues also need to be deliberated. Therefore, these issues have also been included in this consultation paper for comments/inputs of the stakeholders.
