Internet of Things (IoT)

For Mobile Operators

With the advent of machine-to-machine networks and the Internet of Things (IoT), many multinational enterprises are seeking to deploy services across countries in a seamless, efficient manner.

As part of the Bridge Alliance, a member operator can be a vital cog of the project by providing the necessary local access to mobile networks, subscriptions and services that are needed for such deployments.




Mobile operators know their local markets well, but often have to rely on the expertise and resources of regional alliances and partnerships when it comes to working with large enterprise customers whose products and services cross borders and operate in multiple geographies. 

These companies could be looking at M2M/IoT deployments in areas such as tracking devices in goods vehicles across a few countries. A single operator would have to develop separate, individual partnerships with telcos in other markets to address the cross-border needs of the customer. 


As a Bridge Alliance member operator, a telco becomes part of a leading alliance of operators in Asia-Pacific, newly empowered by a collective depth of experience and unrivalled reach across the region to connect customers better. 

Bridge Alliance is the first-of-its kind in Asia-Pacific to address the challenges of IoT and M2M by offering unified integration. We deliver a similar service across member operators in multiple countries, reducing complexity. A single global SIM card, made possible through Ericsson’s award-winning IoT Accelerator platform, helps keep ownership costs low while maximising quality of service. 

Benefits for Mobile Operators

Member operators of Bridge Alliance are able to tap on the vast experience of other fellow members in deploying IoT and M2M services. They are able to sidestep issues encountered by other members through learning from their deployments and sharing. 

By being part of a system that offers a centralised management of such networks, an operator also gains access to larger projects from multinational companies seeking regional deployments when they engage Bridge Alliance seeking a solution. 

Research firm Ovum pointed to our strong mobile alliance across the region, adding that Bridge Alliance should be “seriously considered by enterprises and governments for cross-border deployments within the Asia-Pacific region”.
