Belgacom selects KORE Systems Group to power M2M services
Mobile World Congress 2013, Barcelona, Spain –KORE Systems Group, a leader in M2M-optimised OSS/BSS application software, today announced that Belgacom, the Belgian telecom operator, has selected the KORE Systems M2M Service Delivery Platform (M2M SDP) as part of its M2M deployment strategy.
The KORE Systems M2M SDP is completely tailored to meet Belgacom’s M2M business needs and is fully integrated directly inside the operator’s in-country mobile network and business systems.
This ensures a seamless experience for Belgacom customers and provides the operator with total security and control over its M2M offerings and services.
Belgacom will rely on the KORE Systems M2M SDP to power its M2M connectivity solutions including providing the operator’s M2M customers with complete control over their M2M device provisioning, lifecycle management, reporting and fault analytics via its Belgacom-branded web portal and API.
A Belgacom spokesperson said: “KORE Systems has provided us with a powerful platform for controlling all aspects of a connected device’s lifecycle and represents a significant step in our strategy to become the primary M2M operator in our market.”
The KORE Systems M2M SDP automates all major M2M business processes, reducing the overall cost of delivering and supporting M2M services.
In addition, Belgacom M2M customers, including service providers, enterprises and developers, will now benefit from self-service functionality that enables them to control and manage network usage, billing, activation/deactivation, troubleshooting, and reporting and analytics for all connected devices.
“KORE Systems enables our operator partners to provide ‘M2M their own way’ by helping accelerate time-to-market for M2M services with a fully customisable platform that puts control right in the hands of the operator,” said Pat Verrington, vice president, carrier services development, KORE Systems Group.
“Our goal is to enable operators to profitably scale their M2M business and monetise their network, while our comprehensive business system and process integration drives down the cost of delivering M2M services and supporting an M2M customer base, “added Verrington.
