Tele2’s M2M business is targeting PC manufacturers and automotive companies as part of a newly announced partnership with Cubic Telecom.

Ireland-based Cubic, which provides over-the-air mobile connectivity solutions and is backed by Qualcomm and Sierra Wireless, will provide its end-to-end cloud platform as part of the agreement.

The platform features real-time billing, rating and provisioning, customized retail rate sheets and supports 3G, UMTS, CDMA & Wi-Fi connectivity on a single device with seamless handover between 3G & Wi-Fi networks.

Tele2 has been making a concerted effort to expand its M2M business following its launch last year.

Rami Avidan, Head of Tele2 M2M Global Solutions told European Communications last month that the only way to be successful in M2M is to have a partner play.

In July, the operator signed an agreement with NetComm wireless to develop M2M solutions for vertical markets in areas including security, smart cities and healthcare.

Commenting on the Cubic deal, Avidan said: “We see great opportunity in the M2M/IoT space and we are delighted to be working with Cubic Telecom to bring the benefits of M2M/IoT to their markets and provide solutions for some of the largest brands in the world.”

Cubic says its technology is used by a number of well known companies, including HP and Lenovo.

Cubic CEO Barry Napier commented: “We want to make it as easy as possible for enterprises to run their businesses. By expanding our footprint through partnering with Tele2 we not only meet the needs of our expanding customer base by allowing them to grow internationally with proven tools, but we provide them with a clear advantage over their competition.”
