29 Feb 2016

Egyptian mobile operator Etisalat Misr, part of the UAE-based Etisalat group, is developing machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) services with Oberthur Technologies (OT), a global provider of embedded security software products, services and solutions. In a press release from OT, the company announced its M-Sense solution will enable Etisalat’s enterprise customers to quickly launch new M2M and IoT services, based on a new local partnership which resulted from a frame agreement signed between OT and the Etisalat group in July 2015. Khaled Rabie, CBO at Etisalat Misr, said: ‘OT has been a long-term partner for Etisalat, already supplying Etisalat with both SIM cards and secure mission-critical software platforms … Our IoT solutions will dramatically improve energy efficiency, security, logistics, education and many other aspects of everyday things. OT’s solution for IoT application enablement and M2M device management will help us to drive our IoT strategy, test innovative concepts and build the many value-added services the market is looking for.’
