Partnership Focuses on M2M Innovation

Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile and Telit Communications have signed a strategic collaboration agreement which will see the three companies working together, worldwide. The companies say they plan to identify relevant target markets in the telematics, fleet management, navigation, smart metering (remote metering), vending machine and security segments.
Telit is a leading provider of technologies for mobile machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. The partners in the venture will be working closely together on sales and marketing in their target markets and plan to jointly develop innovative M2M products and services. They say that customers will benefit from integrated solutions for the networking of vehicles, machines, measurement and control modules and other objects, as well as a comprehensive range of customised services.
As the operator of an extensive, mature mobile phone network, the M2M market offers us enormous potential for growth, says Mark Bsgen, Head of Business Development for Corporate Clients at T-Mobile Deutschland. Partnering with Telit will enable us to exploit this potential even further and lastingly expand our customer base. Telit understands what users need and therefore represents an important partner for us.”
