Dialog selects Ericsson’s M2M platform

22 Jan 2014

Sri Lanka’s largest mobile operator by subscribers Dialog Axiata has selected Sweden’s Ericsson for the provision of its Device Connection Platform to develop existing machine-to-machine (M2M) products and services aimed at enterprise customers in diverse sectors such as utilities, finance, telematics and transport. Ericsson’s M2M platform enables enterprise users to monitor devices, access information, and integrate devices into existing systems, whilst the solution promises Dialog new opportunities to increase revenue while cutting both operational costs and time-to-market. In addition to supplying the Device Connection Platform, Ericsson has been recruited for consulting and systems integration to accelerate Dialog’s M2M go-to-market plans, according to the vendor’s release. Jeremy Huxtable, head of Dialog’s enterprise division, said: ‘M2M allows for simplified and improved processes, and this brings us a step forward in capitalising on existing assets to drive market leadership of M2M in Sri Lanka.’
