Disaster situations often require additional emergency communications networks to be set up locally to enable responders (e.g. medical, rescue, care etc.) to coordinate their operations more effectively in the disaster area. To set up these networks efficiently, a standardized basis for estimating the capacity and other characteristics for communications by responders is highly desirable. This basis could then be used by many organizations including satellite network operators, equipment manufacturers and responders for design and development of systems, equipment and applications, not only for voice and data but also multimedia services.

As a result, the SDOs, meeting over the course of the past several months, have also identified the need for a cooperative M2M community standards activity, and have agreed to jointly address the challenge of common standardized solutions.

The Machine to Machine (M2M) market offers astonishing opportunities as well as unique challenges.  With over 3 billion mobile phone users across the world, the mobile telecoms industry can rightly be proud of its success. But this pales in significance next to the potential market of over 50 billion devices of all types to be connected, of which only 50 million are connected today.  These devices vary from highly-mobile vehicles communicating in real-time, to immobile meter-reading appliances that send small amounts of data sporadically. Today's telecoms networks have not been designed with these new types of ‘users' in mind.
