31 May 2012 Deutsche Telekom launches M2M Marketplace An online global platform and distribution channel has been created by Deutsche Telekom for manufacturers of M2M hardware, software, apps and full package solutions. The company claims the M2M Marketplace will make it easy for vendors to market offers beyond regular sales channels and allow customers to compare products. It also plans to use the website to sell its own sim cards and chips. "The Marketplace brings together global supply and demand for M2M solutions in a straightforward way, thereby lending greater dynamism to M2M business," said Thomas Kiessling, chief product and innovation officer at Deutsche Telekom. The idea is that vendors put details and images of their products on the portal and allocate their offers to nine industry segments. There is also the option to include technical documentation for download.
