Charging and policy solutions provider Volubill has been chosen to support an unnamed, 3G and next-generation wireless developer and innovator with advanced machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions and services.
London-based Volubill’s technology says its support will help the company give its customers the means to provide employees with Internet access and usage control, regardless of their location.
M2M offers significant new revenue opportunities for communications service providers (CSPs) in solutions addressing verticals such as automotive, transportation, logistics, smart energy, security, industrial automation and health care.
Volubill says its VBS Policy Manager and VNS Core Controller allow this global semiconductor company to provide its M2M automotive, transportation and logistics customers with unprecedented connectivity, communications and managerial control that yield significant efficiency improvements and cost savings. For example, transportation customers are now offered the ability to provide continuous connectivity to drivers, control the amount of bandwidth they can use and the sites they are able to access. In the future this might extend to offering drivers the ability to purchase their own data plan to use for personal and non-business related functions, Volubill added.
“This customer win is a good example of how policy control and M2M can open up new revenue streams for service providers by enabling them to offer innovative services with significant upside for customers," said John Aalbers, CEO of Volubill.
