EE launches 4G-enabled M2M platform
EE has launched what it claims is the UK’s first 4G-enabled M2M platform.
EE Connect is said to offer M2M customers real-time monitoring of devices, remote monitoring, automation and reporting for efficient business operations. The platform is supported by a dedicated M2M service team.
EE estimates it has two million machines communicating to each other over its 2G and 3G network, predicting that to double to more than four million by 2017.
The platform’s ability to leverage 4G will support higher bandwidth devices, such as remote video distribution, in-car diagnostics and entertainment.
