O2 mobile telephony enables Machine to Machine communications

Using its mobile technology to communicate with robots has helped O2 Ireland scoop an international innovation award.



O2 Ireland won the ‘Machine-to-Machine Services Innovation Award’ at the Global Telecoms Business awards in London recently following a partnership between ABB Robotics, a global leader in power and automation technologies and Wyless UK, a company providing Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions.



The company has installed O2 Ireland SIM cards at manufacturing level to identify and predict problems with robots remotely and dispatch help automatically. Once the SIM cards are installed the management of the connection platform through fixed IP is controlled by Wyless UK by combining the hardware, application and network solution.



The award ceremony, which was hosted by Global Telecoms Business (GTB), a magazine aimed at the communications sector worldwide,  ABB, with sales of $29 billion, is  and supplies industrial robots to sectors such as car manufacturers.



Commenting on the award, Mark Finlay, Wholesale Data Account Manager at O2 Ireland said, "Our partnership with Wyless and ABB Robotics is an example of how cellular connectivity is being used to drive further efficiencies in business and change the way people run their operations.  We won this business as a result of our global roaming partner network, commercial focus and the strength of the Telefónica name.”

Paul Smith, CEO Wyless PLC added, “This award is recognition of what can be achieved when all the interested parties work closely together.”
