Telefónica integrates its M2M offering of services for Smart Cities in a global solution

Tue, 13 Nov 2012 13:28:34 EST

- Based on its M2M solutions, the new offering will create an open ecosystem which will enable town councils, urban service providers and entrepreneurs to integrate all the technology required by this type of service in a single solution.
- As part of the services for Smart Cities, Telefónica Digital also announces two cooperation agreements with the companies Streetline, specialist in Smart Parking end-to-end solutions, and Libelium, developer of M2M Smart Cities sensors.

At the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona Telefónica Digital presents a Smart City solution based on the company's M2M capacities. It is an offering which will allow municipal corporations, urban service providers and entrepreneurs from worldwide to integrate in a single scalable, flexible and self-managing solution the complex environment of necessary sensors and technology, which are characteristic of the so-called 'Smart Cities'.

This integrated offering will provide professionals in the sector with access to Telefónica's M2M capabilities and services, capabilities which deliver added value to town councils and other bodies in the supervision and management of connected devices, their installation and maintenance, and the collection and analysis of data.

The solution presented today by Telefónica will allow the creation of an open ecosystem which will generate new business models, helping entrepreneurs to develop their own applications on top of it. For the cities, meanwhile, the fact that the solution is fully adaptable to their particular needs will allow them to improve management and optimise the services they offer to their citizens.

"With this offering, Telefónica is demonstrating its capacity to respond in an open and flexible manner to the needs of its customers in the increasingly important M2M sector. We are convinced that the solution we are presenting will allow us to deliver an integrated, quality solution which covers the whole value chain in Smart Cities", said Carlos Morales, Telefónica Digital's Global M2M Director.

As part of this offering, Telefónica Digital is also announcing today the signing of two important agreements. The first, with Streetline, the global leader in sensor enabled real-time vehicle detection and telematic services and applications designed for the optimisation and management of Smart Parking. Under the terms of the agreement, Telefónica will offer its Smart City customers the chance to enjoy Streetline's Smart Parking solution. Telefónica contributes with its M2M capabilities, financial services, sales network and customer support, while Streetline will provide the Smart Parking services, applications and technical support necessary. Streetline will be Telefónica's primary smart parking partner.

The second agreement reached by Telefónica Digital is with the developer of wireless sensor networks for Smart Cities, Libelium. This agreement enables Telefónica to integrate wireless sensors made by Libelium, which have been certified to operate with Telefónica's M2M technology, in its portfolio. This will allow integrators to create M2M applications based on real-time information flows quickly and at low cost.

Telefónica's Smart City offering currently has 27 different applications, including traffic management, Smart Parking and environmental and agricultural monitoring.
