Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication company Telit Wireless Solutions has announced its partnership with telecommunications company Telefónica at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona.
M2M companies will gain access to Telefonica´s global wireless network, cross-border coverage and M2M core networks along with Telit´s hardware and software technology, M2M applications, and customer support.
The service aims to enable M2M service providers and applications developers to bring solutions instantly to market with technical support over the entire product lifecycle, enhanced monitoring capabilities, efficient real-time budget management, and lower tariffs for fixed mobile applications.
“This bundle from Telit and Telefónica signals a shift in the industry,” says Telit CEO Oozi Cats because “Any M2M service or solution provider of any size can now have the same quality of service, performance, pricing, and support as the large players.”
The new service is due to launch in EMEA, South America, and selected countries by Q3/2012.
