Brazilian mobile carrier TIM Brasil plans to launch a machine-to-machine (M2M) network operations center (NOC), according to M2M director Gilberto Miyahara.
The facility, scheduled to be opened by year-end, should deliver scalability and reliability to the operator’s M2M services.
A TIM executive, speaking at a M2M conference on Tuesday in São Paulo, said:
“It makes sense to have infrastructure that gives operational support, ensuring scalability and security when facing technical issues, for example. We need to have such a network – operating 24/7.”
The M2M NOC will be installed in São Paulo, next to the company’s current NOC.
In addition, TIM is working on the expansion of its M2M portfolio, the executive said, with the launch of new solutions expected in the coming weeks.
The company is not only focused on the corporate segment but on the consumer sector as well, he added.
On Monday, Brazil put into effect tax cuts for the M2M segment signed into law by President Dilma Rousseff in 2012.
