Singapore based Bridge Alliance will deploy Ericsson’s Device Connectivity Platform (DCP) multi-domestic solution for the management of its Internet of Things (IoT) services.
Bridge Alliance consists of 36 mobile and telecommunications companies across Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Middle East.
The company provides service connectivity, along with a suite of integrated value-added services, for the subscribers of the alliance members while roaming on one-another’s network.
By deploying the Swedish kit vendor’s DCP on a global scale, Bridge Alliance will facilitate a unified experience for operators and their customers including a single global SIM card.
Operators are also expected to get access to DCP consumer services, to manage new B2B and B2C business models.
Bridge Alliance CEO Alessandro Adriani said: "The combination of Ericsson`s technology leadership in IoT connectivity and Bridge Alliance`s geographical coverage is an unmatched vehicle for any device original equipment manufacturer or enterprise looking to propel its business.
"Offering this unified experience requires more than just harmonizing interfaces across mobile operators. We have done more with Ericsson, including standardizing our footprint on a common core network.
"This will truly guarantee harmonised sets of features and service levels within the footprint to our customers."
The solution is also expected to reduce obstructions that comes in the way of deployment for the enterprises, and is expected to help keep total cost of ownership low without compromising on the quality of service.
