“We’ve been looking at an integrated partnership with a platform provider, so we can offer a service in the market that we feel is missing in Europe and on a global scale. We researched and talked to numerous companies around the world, where we put those platforms against each other. Simetric came out top based upon their superior technology, its capabilities & features but also because of how professional, comfortable, and honest the Simetric team was with us. We were promised lots of things by different companies and they all fell short compared to Simetric.” shared Richard Clayton, CEO M2M Data Connect.

M2M customers, of any size or vertical, can now take advantage of IoT deployments across wireless networks. Assembling close to 400 APIs for over 150 global carriers into one single management pane.

“The ability for M2M Data Connect to manage all of its customer’s carriers into a single, consolidated platform will enable them to drive business process optimization and automation to customers, while driving out unnecessary and hidden costs all the while meeting its customers’ evolving needs,” says Allen Boone, Simetric CEO.

The Simetric platform will heighten M2M’s ability to extend customers greater unified IoT management across connectivity and device performance. Customers can benefit from automation and data analytics, see devices in real-time and act on them in near real-time with the new service offerings provided by this partnership. The combined capabilities create predictable controls that finance and IT organizations have been seeking to expand IoT digitization efforts.

“Simetric will also allow us to help customers with their migration strategy extending to edge devices and the connectivity that we are managing on behalf of our customers. Companies are moving to 5G and they’re not only asking for that unification, but they’re really asking to tell us how, when and where I moved my devices towards 5G. All of that automation is what’s built into the Simetric platform that enables M2M to not only discover those devices with unified management, but also control and provide a seamless migration for our customers” shared Jess Wakefield, M2M Data Connect Global IoT Connectivity Specialist.

Simetric CEO concludes, “We are excited about the partnership opportunity with M2M. They are a team that emulates and echoes our commitment to customer success. It’s a powerful combination and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”

5G and Growth of IoT Bring Explosion of Information

By 2027, it has been projected that more than 41 billion IoT devices will be connected to the internet, generating 800 zettabytes of information. That amount of information is impossible to manage by humans alone. The rapid growth of 5G is requiring companies to invest in platforms that are highly extensible and analytical to help them manage their data and control their costs. Enterprises, IT VARs, System Integrators, Cellular Operators and Network Device providers all are actively responding to the immediate opportunities emerging with 5G and IoT.
