Swedish Operator TeliaSonera Implements M2M Platform

By Ashok Bindra November 07, 2012

With machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity on the rise in Nordic and Baltic regions, Swedish operator group TeliaSonera has deployed a M2M platform to strengthen its M2M offering in the region.

The Swedish operator has deployed Swedish vendor Ericsson’s device connection platform. The M2M platform will enable TeliaSonera to manage large volumes of mobile subscriptions and provide flexibility to its M2M partners and customers.

TeliaSonera believes that Ericsson’s M2M platform will enable more efficient delivery of connectivity with improved cost efficiency. Thus, contributing to lowering costs for its partners and customers, said the operator.

The platform also offers the operator full control and vision of all of its M2M subscriptions through a Web portal. “This means that TeliaSonera is able to manage connectivity issues faster and more efficiently than it was previously, contributing to improved customer service to end users,” said the report.

Robert Puskaric, head of region for Northern Europe and Central Asia at Ericsson, said, “With this new contract we continue to build our global footprint as a leading vendor of machine-to-machine solutions.”

The operator estimates that there will be more than one billion connected devices in the Nordics and Baltics by 2020, of which 100 million will be connected to mobile networks.

On Tuesday, November 6th, TeliaSonera and 25 of its prime M2M business partners organized a M2M Symposium at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. The theme was “Evolution & Efficiency – Connecting, streamlining and energizing your business.”
