O2 launches UK M2M network
May 31, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Telefonica UK is working with Jasper Wireless to deploy a new automated platform for the management of machine-to-machine (M2M) connections on the O2 cellular network.
The partnership combines Jasper Wireless experience of working with global device manufacturers with Telefonica UKs expertise in communications and a leading market position and heritage in the M2M market. This new capability will allow both organisations to bring to market powerful and innovative M2M applications and services - including vehicle telematics and smart metering - in a robust and secure way; and also to help create a strong foundation stone for Telefonica UK M2M partners to grow their businesses. The partnership is part of a global strategy, started in Spain, where Telefnica already provides global M2M connectivity thanks to this agreement.
