Vending machines are now enjoying a major renaissance in design, functionality and acceptance. Digital vending machines with interactive touchscreens are generating more than $40 billion in annual U.S. sales of everything from cosmetics and gift cards to clothing, phones and jewelry. And you can find them everywhere, in fast-food outlets, hospitals, airports, fitness clubs, and even in factories where they provide personnel with ready access to commonly used tools, personal protective equipment, fasteners and sealants.
Manufacturers of vending machines are making them smarter, and are connecting them to the Internet using cellular connections. Skywire cellular modems are enabling advancements in machine intelligence by providing secure and reliable Internet connectivity, enabling credit card transactions and providing data such as inventory, location, movement and status of the machine.
