Acal BFi and Wireless Logic

Airtime_2Acal BFi and Wireless Logic GmbH will be working closely together in the M2M mobile network services and managed services areas in the future. As a pan-European system supplier for M2M solutions Acal BFi provides ready-for-use hardware for various vertical markets. Customers also receive active support from the Acal BFi Design Centre for the development of their specific solutions with integrated modules and components.

Now, thanks to the partnership with Wireless Logic, Acal BFi can also integrate mobile network services into the solution and as such offer their customers an array of added value services.

“Extremely reliable and secure communications across the mobile networks can be realised with SIM cards designed specifically for M2M applications and the respective infrastructure, “ explains Ulrich Kaindl, Managing Director of Wireless Logic GmbH. “The choice of the right SIM card should not be left to chance, because an M2M solution that works reliably depends on the SIM card used and the corresponding services. If the solution doesn’t work properly then this reflects predominantly on the solution provider. Acal BFi has recognised this and taken the logical step of providing the complete connectivity in order to offer its customers an added value.”

“With Wireless Logic we have found an experienced partner who can offer us tailor-made connectivity services, which we and our customers need for smooth and reliable operations.” adds Matthias Beuther, European Product Manager Wireless Products Acal BFi Germany GmbH. “We have to be able to react quickly to the differing customer requirements and provide the appropriate SIM card. Wireless Logic gives us the necessary flexibility in the choice of network with suitable local or global tariffs. Like our customers, we too need access to the SIM cards deployed in order to be able to take fast action during operations or service incidents as a system integrator. The SIMpro management platform by Wireless Logic provides us with precisely this flexibility and much more besides.”
