Everything Everywhere strikes new US M2M deal


Everything Everywhere has announced its second M2M agreement with a US company, which will see it provide RACO Wireless with access to its European network 

Everything Everywhere (EE) has announced its second M2M partnership in a month, teaming up with US based M2M partner and enabler RACO Wireless.

It follows a partnership the the operator struck in September with another US based M2M specialist Redtail Telematics.  

RACO Wireless specialises in providing wireless data solutions to the M2M industry specialising and the agreement will see EE provide RACO Wireless customers with access to its network for their international operations.

In addition, to the RACO Wireless deal EE has joined a Service Alliance with its parent companies France Telecom and Deutsche Telekom “guaranteeing” its M2M customers network access and “high standards” of service across Europe.

EE vice president of wholesale and M2M Marc Overton said both deals were further part of its strategy to become the partner of choice in the international M2M space.

“Our ambition to become the partner of choice in the M2M space is underlined by our international partnership with RACO Wireless and the addition of T-Mobile and France Telecom’s Service Alliance,” Overton said.

“By working in partnership we are able to provide businesses with a one stop shop for international M2M capabilities.”

RACO Wireless president John Horn added: “This program – in addition to our multi-IMSI SIM project which we announced earlier this year – will allow EE and RACO Wireless to lead the M2M industry to new heights.

“Our agreement with Everything Everywhere will provide our customers and partners with a solution for M2M connectivity across Europe that offers them the best roaming rates and the most advanced M2M management tools.”
