AT&T, Axeda team up to offer comprehensive M2M platform

Carrier giant AT&T has settled on a preferred software solution for the management of embedded devices and development of M2M applications across a wide range of devices, in an effort to provide end-to-end solutions for M2M. An exclusive US reseller agreement was just announced at AT&T’s Developer Summit in Las Vegas that makes the company the only US carrier to offer the Axeda Platform from Axeda Corp (Foxboro, Mass., USA).


While the combination of the AT&T (Dallas, Texas, USA) network and Axeda Platform will be the preferred choice as a part of AT&T’s solutions stack, both companies made it clear that the Axeda’s software will still be available directly to companies deploying M2M technology but using other networks, and that other M2M platforms will continue to operate on AT&T’s cellular infrastructure.


"AT&T will be the only carrier to provide businesses with network connectivity and Axeda's application development platform along with AT&T professional services to help rapidly design, build and manage M2M applications," said Chris Hill, Vice President, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. The software will be re-branded as the “AT&T M2M Application Platform Powered by Axeda,” and AT&T personnel will begin training on the platform immediately.


The Axeda Platform allows for the development and management of applications for embedded devices in a secure environment, and can function with any number of communications environments, including cellular, WiFi, and Internet. Critically, the Platform also provides a framework for integration of M2M data with enterprise backbone software (ERP/CRM), and the Axeda offers cloud services which can greatly reduce the need for investment in back-end infrastructure.


“Our asset dashboard is designed for ERP integration, which turns M2M data into use-able management information. Customers can get vision all the way into the level of individual devices to do billing, plan for production runs, and more,” says Bill Zujewski, Axeda’s EVP for Product Strategy & Marketing.


Axeda joins another notable M2M solutions provider – Jasper Wireless (Mountain View, Calif., USA) – as a part of AT&T’s robust set of M2M solutions. Jasper software is offered through AT&T (and others) to provide data plan and SIM card management as before.
