ECHING, Germany -- Kontron today announced its cooperation with Deutsche Telekom. The goal of this partnership is the promotion of Kontron's M2M solutions. The M2M partnership with one of the world's leading network operators and service providers extends Kontron's marketing and distribution channels, and underlines its strategic investment to provide embedded computer-based solutions for the huge multiplicity of industrial grade M2M applications.
Fleet management and video surveillance, as well as distributed outdoor digital signage systems and NFC advertising boards, are only a few of the numerous vertical markets towards which our industrial grade M2M solutions are targeted. Being a cooperation partner of the Deutsche Telekom will help us to get accelerated access to OEMs from these various vertical markets," said Claus Giebert, Kontron's Product Manager for M2M solutions in Europe. "A close partnership with the network operators is also important for improving our own M2M services: The 'Internet-of-Things'- or telemetry in other words - needs a high-availability infrastructure and an appropriate quality of services. Think about distributed energy management systems, for example. Only in partnership with worldwide leading network operators and service providers for telecommunication such as Deutsche Telekom we can ensure this for our customers.
