Krakow, 20th August 2015 – The report IoT Platforms and Software - M2M Research Series 2015 analyzes how Communication Service Providers unlock new M2M revenue streams. Berg Insight emphasizes the pressing need for more sophisticated communication platforms and middleware, capable of bridging the gap between applications, networks and devices as well as bundling them with vertical enablers, while maintaining quality of service and providing SLAs, telecom service and Cloud offers. The report corroborates the Comarch Telecommunications white paper “How to differentiate your M2M offering to ensure a competitive edge?”.
André Malm, the author of the report, points out the continuously growing number of devices connected in the IoT which is forecasted to rise to 6.6 billion in 2020 from 1.7 billion at the end of 2014. This growth is constantly stimulated by decreasing costs of hardware, communication, data processing and system integration.
The report lists several leading mobile operators in Europe that have chosen the Comarch M2M Platform and its flexible modules for rating, billing, mediation, provisioning, SIM management, monitoring, AAA, self-service, B2B gateway and CRM. Comarch’s licensing model gives CSPs full control over the platform and allows to differentiate and customize offers. The report emphasizes Comarch’s competency to provide vertical M2M platforms for specific industries, such as healthcare and utilities, where it has a lot of experience, in addition to providing M2M platforms for the telecommunications industry.
M2M is addressed comprehensively by Comarch M2M, one of the leading platforms in the industry – says Comarch BSS Solution Manager, Bartłomiej Kordas – The platform consists of various BSS modules such as CRM, billing, PCRF, AAA, BPM, integration framework, mediation, service controller, and contains M2M-specific processes, dashboards and API's. What differentiates Comarch from other M2M suppliers are strong credentials not only in the M2M business, but also in other vertical industries including healthcare, automotive, public services or transport and logistics. Its extensive experience allows Comarch to provide a flexible, powerful and complete product portfolio to respond to the growing demands of digital services & IoT markets as a multi service provider
