So how do decide which one to choose? Here are some of the factors to keep in mind.
It is important that you get required support in the event of an issue with the solution. Be sure to check out whether they provide both customer and technical support when looking into providers. Be aware that some providers may charge extra for round-the-clock support.
M2M Management Platform

SLA’s & up-time
Make sure you have a high-level SLA (Service Level Agreement) in place if the data that you’ll be transferring between devices is sensitive (or critical to your business operation).
Transparency and trust are of utmost importance and something that you should be definitely looking for in an M2M service provider, after all, they’re going to be responsible for your devices’ connectivity.
