KORE M2M Systems Group, a leader in M2M optimized OSS/BSS application software, has deployed an M2M service management platform for Singapore’s StarHub, which in turn provides M2M services to enterprises, service providers and developers.
The feature-rich platform from KORE will be locally hosted and fully integrated with StarHub’s mobile network and business systems that ensures StarHub customer’s data privacy is fully protected.
The introduction of the customised StarHub branded M2M portal is one of a series of initiatives undertaken by StarHub to advance its M2M solutions and to offer creative pricing packages designed specifically to meet the needs of various M2M applications and business models. Through the platform, StarHub also offer end-to-end solutions such as fleet and asset management and IP surveillance solutions, and starter kits to developers to test new devices and build new applications.
“We are pleased to have chosen KORE for our M2M service management platform.” said Michael Ng, Vice President of Managed Services & Solutions at StarHub.
“StarHub is driving M2M awareness, adoption and innovation in Singapore by collaborating with partners in our M2M ecosystem. The platform is the first step towards enabling us to offer valuable, differentiated and complete M2M services to our M2M partners and customers.”
KORE is providing StarHub with a robust business management platform for controlling all aspects of a connected device’s lifecycle from StarHub’s M2M SIM ordering to SIM provisioning and SIM states to network usage, billing and troubleshooting. Through tight integration with existing mobile network elements and business systems, StarHub is able to provide differentiated services to service providers, enterprises and developers while at the same time, automating major business processes in order to speed up and minimize the cost of delivering and supporting M2M services.
Pat Verrington, Vice President at KORE, said:
“Leading operators like StarHub have identified the growth that M2M markets can provide and the revenue opportunities it represents particularly in the face of slowing growth in traditional business lines.”
“KORE has delivered a complete service platform with the applications required for operators to monetize their networks, control costs, optimize M2M services delivery and provide an ideal end-user experience.”
