Spark Digital has kick-started the new year by securing a new Machine to Machine (M2M) agreement with ADT Security, the world’s largest electronic security company.
The five-year agreement provides ADT with access to Spark Digital’s Connected Mobility service, powered by Jasper.
This M2M solution will be deployed across the company's alarm and medical monitoring systems, allowing ADT to expand into regions and developments where analogue is no longer available.
Gerhard Venter, Consumer Manager, ADT Security says that the agreement helps provide the company with a new and improved level of safety and security for their customers.
“Our medical monitoring service allows people the choice of being cared for in their own homes 24/7 when someone cannot be there in person," Venter says.
"The new solution running over 3G cellular networks will help remove our reliance on traditional analogue technology and enable us to monitor our customer’s connections in real time.
“The M2M contract was awarded after a lengthy tender process that included our own testing of all the local mobile networks. Spark Digital has the best coverage for our needs.”
Spark Digital’s General Manager of Corporate Clients, Simon Gillespie, says ADT chose Spark Digital on the strength of the company’s network coverage and reliability, and largely because Spark New Zealand are the only provider able to offer a real-time M2M dashboard.
“Connected Mobility helps our clients unleash the power of big data by enabling them to simultaneously monitor and manage multiple devices in any location and provide real-time information that they can use to create a competitive edge,” Gillespie adds.
“In ADT’s case the Connected Mobility dashboard, powered by Jasper, will allow them to self-manage their mobile connections in the field, including self-provisioning, diagnosis of faults, and tracking.
“Jasper is already the platform of choice for the most enterprises worldwide, so we are delighted to offer the award winning technology to Spark Digital customers in New Zealand.”
