Mobily deploys M2M solution from Gemalto

14 Mar 2012

Saudi Arabian telco Mobily has signed a contract with digital security firm Gemalto for the provision of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology. Gemalto will deploy its Machine Identification Module (MIM) solution to support Mobily as it provides services such as smart grid metering, where utility companies collect and monitor electricity consumption data remotely and in real time, and fleet tracking, which enables logistics companies to monitor the flow of vehicles for route and delivery optimisation. The companies say that this represents the first deployment of dedicated M2M technology in the Middle East region.
