Telecom gives Kiwi developers a leg up in M2M


Telecom gives Kiwi developers a leg up in M2M

Telecom is partnering with New Zealanders interested in creating ‘machine-to-machine’ (M2M) solutions by making available a free ‘Developer’s Pack’ with the resource, infrastructure and expert-advice needed to develop M2M applications.

Telecom Wholesale Labs Business Manager, Mark Moselen says this initiative is focussed on the Kiwi developer community, equipping them with the tools and expertise needed to enter the local M2M market in a bid to unlock new revenue streams.

“The rise of M2M connections globally has been phenomenal and we’ve already seen a number of large businesses integrate M2M solutions into what they do every day. However, this programme is about us partnering with grass-roots developers and small businesses to help them unlock their potential and create new and innovative M2M solutions in their own backyard.

“By giving developers access to the mobile infrastructure and expertise needed to create these solutions we believe they’ll stand the best chance of creating a unique M2M application that can be taken to market and will potentially create a new revenue stream.”

Telecom’s ‘Developer’s Pack’ comes with four Telecom M2M-specialist SIM cards, connected to a private Wide Area Network (WAN) within Telecom’s 3G Mobile Network, each with its own static IP address to support M2M communications.

The SIM cards will enable the wireless transfer of data between devices and allow users to capture vital information in real-time to drive productivity and efficiency without the hassle of dynamic IP addressing or malicious internet traffic.

Through Telecom’s partnership with New Zealand based M2M specialist–Advanced Portable Technologies (APT) not only will the ‘Developer’s Pack’ give the user complimentary access to Telecom’s Mobile Network but they’ll also have access to expert advice throughout the planning, implementation and go-to-market phases of development.

Developers interested in receiving a pack can register their interest by going to www.telecomwholesalelabs.co.nz and a representative from Telecom or APT will be in touch to discuss their idea.
