Tele2 has boosted its M2M offering by signing a partnership with UK-based Telit that is designed to develop solutions for smaller enterprises.

Sweden-based Tele2 said it would cooperate with Telit’s Wireless Solutions branch, which specialises in IoT enablement, to launch “premium” value added services and solutions that improve serviceability and network QoS.

The aim is to provide end-users with access to a portfolio of M2M/ IoT connectivity and services out-of-the-box, something Tele 2 said has until now been available to large enterprises only.

Tele2 has made a concerted effort to grow its M2M business after its launch last year. Speaking to European Communications in September, Rami Avidan, Head of M2M Global Solutions at Tele2, explained that partnering was a key focus for the group for securing a foothold in the M2M market.

Since then, the operator has penned two new partnerships with Cubic Telecom and engineering firm L&T Technology Services.

Commenting on the latest collaboration, Avidan said: “I am really excited about the partnership with Telit Wireless Solutions. Together we are able to take a larger share of the growing global M2M/IoT market by offering solutions that makes life simpler, more secure and above all more efficient for our customers.”

Earlier in the year, Tele2 bagged a major M2M contract with the Vattenfall Group, one of the continent’s largest suppliers of energy and utilities, as well as a partnership with NetComm wireless to develop M2M solutions for vertical markets.
