Amdocs joins IMC to drive M2M profitability

Software player Amdocs has become the latest member of the International M2M Council (IMC) – a trade group that defines its mission as proving there is a compelling business case for investing in M2M technologies.

The membership deal will see Yuval Mayron, the general manager for Amdocs (Chesterfield, MO, USA) Product Group, join the IMC’s board of governors.

“Amdocs is an important software provider in the M2M space, and we welcome them into our Board of Governors,” said Juergen Hase, the vice president of the M2M Competence Center for German telecoms incumbent Deutsche Telekom (Bonn, Germany), one of the IMC’s founder members.

The IMC’s other members include AT&T (Dallas, TX, USA), B&B Electronics (Ottawa, IL, USA), Digi (Minnetonka, MN, USA), Iridium (McLean, VA, USA), Inmarsat (London, UK), Kore (Alpharetta, GA, USA), Numerex (Atlanta, GA, USA), Oracle (Redwood City, CA, USA), Orbcomm (Rochelle Park, NJ, USA), Synapse Wireless (Huntsville, AL, USA), Telecom Italia (Milan, Italy), Telit (London, UK), Verizon (New York City, NY, USA) and Wyless (Lawrence, MA, USA).

Amdocs is expected to play a significant role in the IMC’s initiatives, said the organization in a statement.

“The M2M ecosystem has become considerably crowded and fragmented over the past few years,” said Mayron. “We recognize that there is much communality between all verticals’ needs and the market hunger for a simple, horizontal enablement platform which can serve as M2M backbone for providing end-to-end solutions.”

“We are proud to join with a high-quality, diverse group of providers to help adopters achieve quicker time to services and profitability,” he added.

The IMC says it is working to promote the business value of M2M across various industries, including automotive, logistics, energy, healthcare and public infrastructure.

With that in mind, the organization has developed a library of M2M case studies and is also publishing newsletters and quantitative research for these vertical markets.

It has also signed up more than 1,500 adopter members – associates interested in deploying M2M solutions – including ABB (Zurich, Switzerland), BMW (Munich, Germany), Coca-Cola (Atlanta, GA, USA), DHL (Bonn, Germany), Itron (Liberty Lake, WA, USA), RWE (Essen, Germany), Saudi Aramco (Dhahran, Saudi Arabia), Tata Group (Mumbai, India) and the US Department of Defense.
