Comtech is one of only 41 companies that have made the M2M 100 directory every year it has been published.

With the help of its advisory board, M2M magazine has selected the companies that are taking a commanding role in leading the M2M charge in a host of industries by delivering best of class technology solutions. Companies were selected through an exhaustive selection process based on criteria including: strength and number of customer references; strength of product/service portfolio; strength of business model; establishment and active involvement in the M2M market; and growth potential. This year, more than 300 companies were considered.
