New platform streamlines M2M for Malaysia's DiGi

Malaysian operator DiGi Telecommunications is implementing Ericsson’s Device Connection Platform to provide its customers with everything they need to deploy, manage and monetize millions of machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer-electronics devices.

The Platform will allow DiGi to increase revenue and cut both operational costs and time-to-market, as well as enabling DiGi's enterprise customers to monitor devices anytime and anywhere and integrate into existing systems over the complete device life cycle.

For a mobile operator, M2M business means deploying and managing large numbers of mobile subscriptions on an industrial scale. The new platform will provide flexibility to DiGi's partners and customers in deploying and managing mobile subscriptions for solutions that include M2M functionality.

Akash Das, DiGi's Head of M2M Strategy, said: "This strategic development will allow us to strengthen our M2M offerings to our growing customer base, and it will ready our customers for new business strategies that rely on a broad spectrum of devices as data services become more mature in Malaysia."

Todd Ashton, President of Ericsson Malaysia and Sri Lanka, says:  “Enterprises often have to address multiple challenges that hinder them from launching services using connected devices. This platform removes those barriers, so an M2M business can scale up quickly."
