(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Operator M2M Success Hinges on Flexible Pricing Global Telecom Insider / Vol. 4, No 3, Edition 3" report.
In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:
Operator M2M Success Hinges on Flexible Pricing looks at several operators' M2M commercial offerings, and analyzes pricing strategies of Tier 1 mobile operators across 14 markets. Pyramid Research presents the case study of U.S.-based MNO AT&T, an operator in the M2M sphere, and then takes a look at two additional operators in emerging markets: Movistar Mexico and MTS Russia.
At the moment, AT&T's view of the M2M market is driven by cost- reduction strategies in shipping and logistics, industrial automation, residential and commercial buildings, and fleet telematics - verticals characterized by low data usage consumption per device and lower ARPS levels, says Sylwia Boguszewska, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research. Now AT&T plans to take advantage of global roaming agreements; with this in mind, AT&T is expanding into new areas such as solar panel, smart grid monitoring and remote healthcare. In this vein, AT&T continues to expand its partnerships.
In February 2011, AT&T announced four partnerships: with cloud- based M2M platform provider Axeda, which has footing in the industrial, medical, retail, IT, banking and government sectors; with ILS Technology, providing monitoring and analytical maintenance applications in the building automation, energy management, data center and industrial markets; with SensorLogic, dedicated to fleet management; and with Sierra Wireless, developer of the AirVantage cloud-based service and development platform. AT&T's success through partnerships is evidenced in their customer list, which includes Hertz, BWM, Amazon, and USA Technologies, among others.
