- Case Studies
Imagine a world where everything just flows. Where machines, cars, appliances, meters or wind turbines communicate seamlessly. Machine to Machine (M2M) communication is building a network of connected devices. This will form a new network called the Internet of Things (IoT). Travelping is actively developing solutions for this new market.
M2M communication has many specific requirements towards the telecommunication networks. The whole industry is working on defining new standards for overarching M2M solutions. Travelping has chosen the state of the art OpenFlow technology to build Michronet, a global M2M platform.
OpenFlow is a core technology of so-called Software Defined Networking (SDN). This will change the way networks are built in the future. It enables network operators to quickly change and deploy network behavior. It also makes sure new standards and protocols can be easily implemented for already deployed equipment.
Travelping has delivered the world’s first OpenFlow and SDN based global M2M service network with a unique feature set. Michronet spans a fine granular switched M2M network capable of scaling up to millions of devices. It integrates different access and transport technologies including 2G, 3G and 4G mobile data, satellite communication, and legacy VPN services over DSL and fiber networks.
Travelping has delivered a turn-key solution for our M2M network needs. It convinced us to use their unique SDN approach to deliver the services. Today we are able to integrate data services from Vodafone, EverythingEverywhere, Iridium and Inmarsat into one global M2M offering. We are always excited about the capabilities Michronet can deliver. We can easily adapt to new requirements of our customers.
