This partnership will further extend Telefonica’s UK capabilities in the energy sector which is experiencing growth both in the UK and worldwide.  Under the agreement, the M2M platform will deliver up to 1.4m SIMs and, at its peak, Telefonica UK will be rolling out 70k SIM's per month to meet G4S Utility Services required roll out plans underpinning the delivery of a managed service from G4S.

 

Kim Challis, Managing Director of G4S Utility Services, said “G4S Utility Services is committed to the Telefonica UK partnership, and this is another great example of our successful work together. Telefonica UK provides G4S with the partnership and strategic relationship we require to continue to be successful in the Utility Services sector.”

The extension of the contract follows the announcement of the G4S Utility Services contract awarded to Telefonica UK in March 2011 for a range of services including areas such as data transfer and security.

“The energy sector is a key area of focus for our M2M team and I am delighted that we have been able to extend our partnership with G4S Utility Services.  This agreement truly takes the M2M market and in particular our offering to another level,” said Gilli Coston, Head of M2M at Telefónica UK.  “We are constantly evolving our offering into the market with an ambition of providing a whole new range of services which changes what our customers and partners are able to leverage in terms of technologies and what they in turn can offer to the market.”
