Telecom launches pack for M2M app development

The pack comes with four Telecom M2M-specialist SIM cards, connected to a private WAN within Telecom’s 3G mobile network, each with its own static IP address to support M2M communications.

Telecom has made available a free developer’s pack with the resources needed to develop machine-to-machine (M2M) applications. The pack is meant for New Zealanders interested in working on M2M solutions.

The pack comes with four Telecom M2M-specialist SIM cards, connected to a private WAN within Telecom’s 3G mobile network, each with its own static IP address to support M2M communications.

The SIM cards will enable the wireless transfer of data between devices and allow users to capture vital information to drive productivity and efficiency.

Telecom wholesale labs business manager, Mark Moselen said this initiative is focussed on equipping the Kiwi developer community with the tools and expertise needed to enter the local M2M market, in a bid to unlock new revenue streams.

“The rise of M2M connections globally has been phenomenal and we’ve already seen a number of large businesses integrate M2M solutions into what they do every day. However, this programme is about us partnering with grass-roots developers and small businesses to help them unlock their potential and create new and innovative M2M solutions in their own backyard.

“By giving developers access to the mobile infrastructure and expertise needed to create these solutions we believe they’ll stand the best chance of creating a unique M2M application that can be taken to market and will potentially create a new revenue stream,” he said.

Developers using the pack will also have access to advice through the planning, implementation and go-to-market phases of development, through Telecom’s partnership with New Zealand based M2M specialist, Advanced Portable Technologies (APT)/

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
