KDDI CORPORATION (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Takashi Tanaka; hereinafter referred to as "KDDI") has teamed up with Sweden-based M2M service provider Telenor Connexion AB (Headquarters: Stockholm, Sweden; CEO: Per Simonsen; hereinafter referred to as "Telenor Connexion") to provide a global M2M solution for KDDI's corporate customers.
The service, which will utilize Telenor Connexion's global M2M platform, is scheduled to launch on May 8, 2013.
Telenor Connexion provides its M2M platform, which enables remote monitoring and control of devices such as industrial machines via installed SIM cards, to approximately 200 countries and regions. In addition to a vast service area that spans the globe, Telenor Connexion has a broad and extensive track record of success in deploying the platform.
Utilizing this platform, KDDI's global M2M solution enables corporate customers in Japan to monitor and control devices such as industrial machines overseas in approximately 200 countries and regions, over a secure network. In addition, by using global M2M roaming SIM cards that do not need to be changed for each area, this service reduces the operational load on customers. KDDI offers the service in Japan as an all-inclusive one-stop solution covering all stages from contract to operation and maintenance, and in the remote event that trouble occurs abroad, KDDI's overseas subsidiaries are able to provide prompt and secure support.
"KDDI has a longstanding reputation for quality and reliability and a proven M2M track record in Japan," says Per Simonsen, CEO of Telenor Connexion. "Hence, the partnership with KDDI is a seal of approval of our end-to-end solution and comprehensive support. And it further strengthens our position on the important Japanese market."
Moving forward, KDDI will continue striving to provide one-stop global solutions that satisfy the diverse needs of corporate customers expanding their operations overseas.
