Telefonica targets local markets with M2M

The GSMA hopes to boost the M2M market

Telefónica Digital has its eye on the M2M sector, this week unveiling a web-based platform for the connectivity, management and control of M2M communications.

Smart M2M features real time monitoring of traffic type, volume and current consumption, technical supervision of lines including maps of connected devices, diagnostics and localisation. It also offers fraud detection functionalities, including the ability to restrict communications between a list of given devices or the possibility to establish traffic caps.

Telefónica said the offering is targeted at local operations, offering customers a service adapted to their needs with customer support in their local language and over a locally maintained network. Local SIMS can be used and data can be confined to the country allowing compliance with local regulation.

“The visibility and management of machine-to-machine communications is a vital component of any successful deployment,” said Carlos Morales, director of M2M & Cloud at Telefónica Digital. “By matching our technical expertise and experience in M2M with our local knowledge, we have been able to develop a simple and flexible platform that can give our customers a complete and precise view of their business processes.”
