Orange Business Services and Ericsson announced that the companies have entered into a strategic agreement to better serve the growing global M2M market and to respond to multi-domestic needs. International companies often need global operations while addressing local requirements of end-users, such as high broadband usage. These needs are mainly driven by vertical industries such as automotive and consumer electronics.
Orange chose Ericsson’s Device Connection Platform delivered as a service to enrich its existing M2M products and solutions portfolio to support in particular international customers. This advanced solution enables Orange Business Services’ customers to benefit from state-of-the-art functionalities to deploy, scale and operate millions of M2M connections. Through a service portal, available at anytime from anywhere, customers can access self-service functionality to manage and control their installed SIM base, including real-time access to monitor operational levels, support management, and access statistics.
