TeliaSonera has made two key announcements at its M2M symposium in Stockholm.
First, it unveiled “M2M-in-a-box”, a new product featuring sensors that collect data such as temperature, humidity, movement and position for use in anything from offices to vehicles.
TeliaSonera said the cloud-based solution is managed through a web interface and is designed to simplify the “complex and resource demanding process” required to deploy M2M solutions.
It is scheduled for launch early next year in the Nordic and Baltic markets.
Hans Dahlberg, VP and Head of TeliaSonera Global M2M Services commented: “M2M-in-a-box is a horizontal service that includes everything businesses and organisations need, regardless of which industry they’re in and what size they are, to start exploring the opportunities of M2M and IoT.
“The service offers a transparent and predictable business model and is easy to set up and use, whether you are a grocery store that wants to keep food fresh by making sure refrigerators are sufficiently cool or if you’re a municipality making sure all roads get plowed during winter by equipping the snowplows with sensors that track their movement.”

Second, TeliaSonera announced that Finnish wearable tech and smart clothing app developer Yepzon Group has signed up to use its M2M platform.
The start-up, which is launching a wearable device for children that tracks where they go in a bid to improve safety, will deploy the platform to manage subscriptions via single a interface.
The platform also enables Yepzon to provide one connected device that works in all European countries, the US and Russia.
Dahlberg said: “Connecting people through wearable technology like Yepzon Group’s wearable application to keep children safe represents a fast growing market segment of IoT that is expected grow 47 percent annually in the Nordics alone. There are already close to 270,000 connected things in this segment today in our region.”
