Colombian mobile operator Tigo, part of the Millicom Group, has selected to deliver a suite of M2M solutions in Latin America. Starting in Colombia, Gemalto's Cinterion Machine Identification Modules (MIMs) and secure MIM services will be used to improve preventive maintenance with remote monitoring and management of MIMs in the field.
The solutions are designed to optimise performance of M2M applications for virtually any vertical market including fleet management, smart metering, remote asset management, surveillance and alarms, automotive and mHealth solutions.
The Cinterion MIM Services Platform monitors signal strength and network-based localisation events among other features such as tracking and tracing devices, enabling remote module configuration and seamlessly switching to other channels when needed.
In addition, audit services monitor MIMs over their entire lifespan and send alerts when predetermined usage thresholds are met. This allows updates before issues arise ensuring continuous service and strong revenue streams are maintained.
