HCL Technologies and Tele 2, one of the leading European telecommunications operators, have entered into a strategic partnership to address the substantial market opportunities for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (loT) solutions in Europe. By focusing on the Healthcare segment in Europe, the two companies will jointly address one of the fastest growing areas of the M2M/loT market. For example, in healthcare the two companies are planning to develop remote patient monitoring systems that are enabled through smart phones.
HCL and Tele2 will work together in an effort to reduce transactional and operational costs for their partners, whilst tapping into the lucrative revenue opportunities that exist within the European loT/M2M market. HCL will be responsible for the implementation, integration, roll-out and ongoing support of M2M/loT solutions, in addition to device connectivity through its flagship Device Gateway product - Aegis. This becomes feasible through Tele2's Control Center, which is the market leading M2M/loT connectivity platform in the world.
