In August 2014, Anatel started to classify M2M terminals into two accesses categories:

 

Special M2M and Standard M2M
  • Special M2M are devices used in machine to machine communication systems which, without human intervention, use telecommunication networks in order to transmit data to remote applications aiming to monitore, measure and control the device itself, the environment around or data systems connected to it through these networks, according to what was stablished by the Decree 8.234/2014;
  • Standard M2M are devices machine to machine in operation that don't match the definition of Special M2M.

Special M2M terminals pay reduced Fistel tax. Standard M2M terminals pay the regular value.

 

 

GSM participation in the total of accesses reached the maximum of 90.16% in Nov/09 and, after that, it started fo fall. The drop in the participation happens because the number of GSM cell phones is increasing less then the number of WCDMA. WCDMA overtook CDMA in Feb/10.
