Axeda Connexion 2013, Boston, MA, USA. May 7, 2013: AT&T is expanding its M2M relationship with Wipro Ltd., a global IT, consulting and outsourcing company. The agreement, announced today at the Axeda Connexion conference, is designed to make it easier for businesses globally to implement machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions.

The two companies will work together to offer M2M development services and systems integration across all major industries. “Customers are turning to us to make their M2M connectivity easy to manage and monitor in virtual real time,” said Mike Troiano, Vice President, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. “Our relationship with Axeda has fuelled 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.”

AT&T and Wipro are combining efforts to provide customers with the expertise and technical support they need to get machines “talking,” using the AT&T M2M Application Platform Powered by Axeda, which the companies say can dramatically speed the delivery time and lower the cost of application development and maintenance for M2M applications.

“Wipro 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, VP 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.”

“Organisations are searching to find simpler and more cost-effective ways to integrate connected machines into the enterprise,” said Todd DeSisto, President, Axeda. “Together, AT&T, Wipro and Axeda are creating innovative global solutions that will enable companies to harness the power of M2M technology with rapid solution delivery and higher value.”

 

Current Analysis named AT&T as the leader in the global M2M market in its April 16 report ranking global M2M service providers. According to principal analyst, Kathryn Weldon, “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. 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. The expanded relationship with Wipro will further enhance AT&T’s ability to provide custom industry specific solutions that leverage Axeda’s application platform providing greater benefits to clients.”
