China Telecom partners Bridge Alliance to offer M2M/IoT services

Monday 30 October 2017 | 15:43 CET | News

China Telecom has signed an IoT business partnership agreement with Bridge Alliance, enabling China Telecom to provide Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) services to multinational enterprise customers across Bridge Alliance's footprint. The agreement leverages Bridge Alliance's technical and commercial capabilities to provide homogenous systems across its footprint. 

The agreement will enable China Telecom customers to apply a 'glocalised' approach tapping on the simplicity of one single integration with China Telecom and the full support and service quality of local networks in Bridge Alliance. The partnership comes at an opportune moment, where Asia Pacific is riding high on the IoT momentum. The region, excluding Japan, is forecasted to be the IoT investment leader, with an expected spend reaching USD 455 billion in 2021. 

Bridge Alliance members can now extend their IoT services to China through China Telecom. As both China Telecom and Bridge Alliance operators have deployed common connectivity platforms, international enterprise customers can have the same experience when deploying their solutions across the footprint of China Telecom and Bridge Alliance. China Telecom will support different collaboration models with Bridge Alliance members for such connectivity requirements into China.
