Telenor Connexion selects Asavie Technologies for smart SDN (Software Defined Network) solution to enhance its global M2M offering

Telenor Connexion selects Asavie Technologies for smart SDN (Software Defined Network) solution to enhance its global M2M offering. Customers will benefit from accelerated time to market and secure communication without using traditional VPN.

Barcelona, Spain – 24 February,
– Asavie Technologies today announced that Telenor
Connexion will use the M2M Connect solution to complement its M2M (machine-to-machine)
service offering. M2M Connect is a smart SDN (Software Defined Network)
solution that enables mobile carriers to rapidly roll out new service
offerings, reliably and securely. With M2M Connect M2M deployments can be
activated in hours even where complex, bi-directional routing or firewalling
are demanded. 

Connexion, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telenor Group, connects anything and
everything to a wireless network for a more secure, intelligent and efficient
world. Telenor Connexion enables market-leading customers like Volvo, Hitachi
Construction Machinery and Scania to wirelessly connect products and services,
so that they in turn can streamline processes, provide accurate real-time
information and enhance their customers’ experience.

global M2M market is widely predicted to grow to 50 billion SIM cards by 2020. Faced
with this demand for connectivity, carriers must provide their customers with rapid
access to a range of reliable, cost-effective connectivity solutions. To do so,
they will require a connectivity solution that is scalable to expected levels
of demand and supports innovation by enabling rapid roll-out of new services in
response to emerging customer requirements. Carriers will be required to roll
out services in new geographic and vertical markets, across businesses of all
sizes, without the lead-times involved in customisation or building dedicated
delivery capabilities. Carriers will also want to accelerate time-to-value for
new services by quickly monetising new service offerings.

smart M2M Connect solution complements our existing connectivity offering as it
provides us with increased flexibility and opportunities for new business
models. With it we can accelerate our customer’s time to market and set up a
dedicated and secure communication without using traditional VPN”, said Rickard
Widerberg, VP of Product Marketing at Telenor Connexion.

 “Demand for connected business processes that
shorten cycle times, increase quality and reduce costs requires a flexible,
scalable and reliable solution that is easy to deploy,” said Ralph Shaw, CEO
Asavie Technologies. “We are delighted that market-leading providers like
Telenor Connexion are choosing M2M Connect to enable a new connected world.”

our global carrier and M2M ecosystem partners Asavie’s M2M solution is targeted
at over 1 billion subscribers in the US, EMEA and Asian markets.
