Everything Everywhere Announces Key Alliance with U.S. M2M Enabler RACO Wireless

Partnership enables RACO Wireless’ U.S.-based customers looking to transform their businesses through mobility to quickly and easily launch throughout Europe

London, UK – 11th October 2011: Everything Everywhere, the U.K.’s biggest communications company, today revealed a partnership with RACO Wireless, a leading machine-to-machine (M2M) partner and enabler in the USA. The agreement will provide RACO Wireless’ customers with access to Everything Everywhere’s network for their international operations, allowing them to quickly and easily launch M2M applications throughout Europe.

The move is the first of a number of partnerships which underline Everything Everywhere’s intent to be the partner of choice for companies looking to extend their M2M services internationally.

In addition, Everything Everywhere has joined a Service Alliance with France Telecom and Deutsche Telekom. The Service Alliance will guarantee Everything Everywhere’s M2M customers, including RACO Wireless customers, network access and high standards of service right across Europe.

Marc Overton, Vice President Wholesale and M2M, Everything Everywhere said:
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. By working in partnership we are able to provide businesses with a one stop shop for international M2M capabilities.

The partnership builds on a long-term relationship between T-Mobile USA and RACO Wireless, and will allow RACO Wireless and Everything Everywhere to offer their customers a one-stop shop for connectivity solutions in the U.S., U.K. and European markets.

In March 2011, Everything Everywhere announced that its partnership with RACO Wireless will, in the near future, allow Everything Everywhere’s and RACO Wireless’ M2M customers to take advantage of a new multi-IMSI capability designed for cost-effective international M2M deployment. The multi-IMSI solution will act as a local SIM when deployed in the U.S. and U.K., enabling M2M application providers to avoid high roaming charges and benefit from improved coverage. The solution will be available in early 2012.

John Horn, President of RACO Wireless said: This program – in addition to our multi-IMSI SIM project which we announced earlier this year – will allow Everything Everywhere 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.

This partnership follows the recent launch of the Everything Everywhere M2M Management Platform, as well as the announcement of a partnership with Redtail Telematics Ltd, to expand Everything Everywhere’s M2M capabilities into new and innovative markets.
