Bridge Alliance partners Ericsson for Internet of Things

24 Feb 2015

Bridge Alliance, composed of 36 Asia-Pacific, Middle East and African mobile operators, has chosen to deploy the Ericsson Device Connectivity Platform (DCP) multi-domestic solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). A press release states: ‘This development means that any original equipment manufacturer (OEM), enterprise or service provider can deploy IoT solutions across multiple countries. With Ericsson DCP deployed on a global scale, operators and their customers will enjoy a unified experience. This includes a single global SIM card, harmonised service levels and business processes. They can also leverage access to DCP consumer services to manage new B2B2C business models … The solution significantly reduces barriers to deployment for these enterprises, keeping total cost of ownership low while maximising quality of service.’ Anders Lindblad, Senior Vice President, Business Unit Cloud & IP, Ericsson, said: ‘The partnership with the Bridge Alliance members to deploy the Ericsson DCP is a critical milestone to make the adoption of cellular services in IoT devices economically viable for device OEM and enterprises.’
