AT&T forms M2M partnership with India's Wipro

US telecoms operator AT&T is to collaborate with Indian IT company Wipro on the development of M2M services for a variety of major industries.

Solutions developed by the two partners will use an M2M application platform from Axeda (Foxboro, MA, USA), with which AT&T (Dallas, TX, USA) already has a relationship.

“Customers are turning to us to make their M2M connectivity easy to manage and monitor in virtual real-time,” said Mike Troiano, the vice president of advanced mobility solutions for AT&T Business Solutions.

“Our relationship with Axeda has fueled customer interest globally, and with the addition of Wipro’s Axeda-trained engineers, we’re poised to help even more businesses implement highly secure and reliable M2M solutions,” he said.

The companies say their combined expertise will help customers to get machines “talking” more quickly, claiming that Axeda’s application platform has been shown to speed up delivery time and reduce the cost of application and development for M2M applications.

“Wipro [Bangalore, India] has deep systems integration skills, vertical industry expertise, IPs based on enhanced analytics, and the largest team of Axeda-ready consultants in the world,” said Steve Snyder, the vice president and head of Wipro’s media and telecom business innovation team.

“Our relationship with AT&T will provide our shared customers with a compelling, end-to-end M2M services and business solution,” he added.

News of the deal follows AT&T’s high-profile launch in late April of a home-monitoring and security service, ultimately expected to generate $1 billion in annual revenues for the operator.

With more than 14 million AT&T recently topped a ranking of global M2M service providers published by market-research company Current Analysis.

“AT&T continues to receive excellent traction for its M2M initiatives as evidenced by its more than 14 million connections and growing set of reference customers across diverse verticals,” said Kathryn Weldon, an analyst with Current Analysis.

“AT&T is clearly positioning itself for even more complex deals that may require end-to-end solutions, and which take advantage of its strong alliance with Axeda,” she said.
