Declining APRU and increasing customer demands for real-time access to services have prompted service providers to venture into new areas with new underlying revenue models. One of the most prominent is the machine-to-machine (M2M) market. This rapidly expanding market presents a great opportunity for CSPs to increase their revenues.
As CSPs expand their businesses into the M2M territory, they are also exposed to various new fraud threats. Since M2M is a relatively new and dynamic environment, CSPs and vendors will have to work together to stay on top of new fraud trends, which if not properly addressed could lead to substantial exposure and revenue loss.
