TELUS Selects Sierra's Services Platform

By Bob Emmerson, TMC European Editor

Sierra Wireless announced a strategic agreement to provide M2M services management for TELUS, a leading Canadian carrier.

TELUS (News - Alert) will integrate the Sierra Wireless AirVantage platform into their network operations. The objective is to provide M2M customers with online access to a suite of service creation, delivery and management capabilities, making it simpler and faster to bring M2M services to market and opening new service opportunities for TELUS and its partners.

ABI Research (News - Alert) forecasts M2M connection revenue in Canada to grow at a rate of 26 percent per year from 2010 to 2015, to a total of $575 million. This figure covers a wide range of applications, including remotely collecting vehicle data, remote monitoring equipment such as pipelines and wind turbines, wireless point-of-sale devices, and connecting innovative consumer devices such as e-book readers, personal navigation devices, and cameras.

The TELUS M2M Platform will integrate AirVantage Services to offer its M2M partners access and control over nearly every aspect of their device connectivity: provisioning and subscription management, device monitoring and remote updating and control for M2M services.

"The M2M market represents an increasingly important opportunity for TELUS,” said Ibrahim Gedeon (News - Alert), CTO. “By collaborating with Sierra Wireless on this powerful set of service delivery tools, we'll be better positioned to help our customers get to market faster with innovative new services, including intelligent remote monitoring for fleets and other assets, automated power management for smart grids, or connecting to almost any consumer electronics device over the TELUS network."

For more, check out the M2M Evolution Conference. To be held Oct. 4 to 6 in Los Angeles and collocated with ITEXPO West 2010, the M2M Evolution Conference will focus on how telemetry has been changing to take advantage of the Internet, where WAN and LAN systems were points of aggregation in the past today’s machines benefit from the ability to connect worldwide. And as the machines continue to look to network the wireless world represents a large growth opportunity for data communication. Don’t wait. Register now.
