MTC - Machine Type Communication

Also termed M2M (Machine to Machine), MTC describes data communication between two entities without the involvement of a human. This communication is typically between an MTC device and an MTC server, with a prime example being Smart Metering for utility services such as gas, water and electricity. MTC communication could also potentially be between MTC Devices, without the involvement of an MTC Server; in the case, a use application would be IoT (Internet of Things).
