DOCOMO to launch global M2M platform

NTT DOCOMO, one of Japan’s mobile operators and provider of integrated services centred on mobility, announced that it will become Japan’s first mobile operator to offer a global enterprise platform for the communication lines of wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) systems beginning December 6.

The platform will manage communication lines via not only in DOCOMO’s mobile network, including through international roaming, but also those of operators outside of Japan.

The new service, “docomo M2M Platform,” will connect M2M communication lines in over 200 countries with a unified Web interface, which corporate customers will combine with M2M solutions for purposes such as the worldwide management of vehicle or construction machinery fleets.

Conventional M2M platforms must be customised to each local mobile operator’s communication line, thus requiring a separate platform in each country. With docomo M2M Platform, however, customers can eliminate the cost of operating multiple M2M platforms.

The new offering utilises the M2M platform of Jasper Wireless, Inc., a U.S.-based company with a proven track record of providing M2M infrastructure to telecommunications carriers worldwide.
