M2M communications create new business opportunities through automation and remote services. It gives businesses the tools to monitor, localize, control and maintain a superior standard of service so things can keep running smoothly remotely. Recently, Axesstel announced a partnership with Deutsche Telekom. It will give the company a platform in e-commerce in a rapidly growing M2M market. The partnership will give the company a global presence for the launch of its new line of Home Alert affordable Wireless Alert Systems.
With Deutsche Telekom’s global network, Axesstel will allow its network operators to introduce the new services to new subscribers as well as existing customers. The homeowner product brings together voice and broadband access with security functionality with wire-line replacement terminals and 4G gateways connected to home management applications.
"This agreement is a significant step in our efforts to grow our M2M platform business and establish firm relationships with integrators and telecommunications companies worldwide. This is a strategic move as we strive to become the device partner of choice for the connected home by offering simple scalable products that can be differentiated to each partner's needs and requirements," said Clark Hickock, CEO of Axesstel.
The solutions Axesstel provides in its line of home alert products are easy to install and configure connected home solutions at affordable prices. The simplicity of the installation doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with the latest technology. It provides wireless alert notifications using SMS with pre-assigned numbers if a sensor in the home is activated. The system can be armed and disarmed directly through a keypad, a remote-control or a smartphone application. It comes with a backup battery system to continually protect the property if there is a power outage.
Home Alert is available in different configurations to protect properties with more security demands. The advanced models can be configured with up to 200 sensors to control appliances, door locks, light control, smoke detection thermostat control and other equipment and parameters. The system can have broadband data access with Wi-Fi capability with personal cloud storage. The monitoring can be accomplished by third-party service providers or self-monitored using PC and mobile devices.
Deutsche Telekom will give Axesstel access to more than 33 million fixed network lines and more than 17 million broadband lines. This will give it the ability to monitor their customers with more reliability, because more networks will be available reducing the chance of complete downtime.
"For Deutsche Telekom partnerships in the M2M area are important to provide solutions in the many different industries. Therefore, we are happy to add Axesstel's products to our M2M Marketplace providing easy access globally," said Markus Breitbach, Head of Sales Deutsche Telekom M2M.
