Updated: Dec 14, 2023

Hasselt / Dubai, 08/12/2023 — WMW, a leading IoT platform technology provider, proudly announces a strategic collaboration with Etisalat UAE by e& , a trailblazing telecommunications company in the UAE. This partnership is centered around the deployment of WMW technology for Etisalat's internal IoT projects, specifically focused on monitoring critical infrastructure elements within Etisalat's telecommunications network

The Collaboration: Internal IoT Projects

This collaboration heralds a transformative era in internal IoT projects as WMW's state-of-the-art technology seamlessly integrates into Etisalat's infrastructure. What sets the WMW platform apart is its device and communication technology agnosticism, going beyond just cellular connectivity. This adaptability not only future-proofs Etisalat's IoT initiatives but also opens the door to a plethora of use cases without being limited to a specific communication standard.

Agnostic to Devices and Communication Technologies:

WMW's platform exhibits unparalleled flexibility by accommodating various devices and communication protocols. It is not confined to cellular connections alone, offering a versatile solution that integrates with a wide array of IoT devices and communication technologies. This agnostic approach ensures that Etisalat can leverage the platform's capabilities across different IoT scenarios, fostering innovation and adaptability.

Optimized Architecture for Server Resources:

Beyond its device agnosticism, the WMW platform boasts an optimized architecture tailored for efficient utilization of server resources. The architecture is engineered to dynamically scale up or down based on both southbound and northbound traffic, ensuring optimal performance in handling incoming data from devices (southbound) and efficiently processing and transmitting relevant information to external systems and users (northbound), if required. This adaptive scalability guarantees that server resources are utilized in the most efficient manner, aligning with the demands of the IoT ecosystem and offering a robust, future-ready solution for Etisalat.

This dual emphasis on device and communication technology agnosticism, coupled with an optimized server architecture, positions the WMW platform as a pioneering force in the realm of internal IoT projects, empowering Etisalat to navigate the evolving landscape of telecommunications infrastructure with unparalleled agility and efficiency.

"At Etisalat, we prioritize innovation to enhance our services and fortify our infrastructure. Maintaining peak operational efficiency is crucial for us, and effective monitoring is key to achieving that objective. With a diverse array of systems and an extensive network of IoT devices, we sought a unified solution capable of seamlessly processing all generated data and delivering it through applications and dashboards for real-time visibility and actionable insights into our assets. In our evaluation of various options, WMW stood out for its unparalleled agility coupled with a robust backend technology that meets industry standards."Etisalat by e& team said.

"We are deeply honored to have been chosen as their partner for the pivotal roles of data collection from sensors, and the visualization of insights. As a frontrunner in the telecommunications industry, Etisalat manages an extensive portfolio of infrastructure that extends far beyond typical operator duties. Aligning all processes into a single 'Centralized IoT Platform', as they call it, makes us proud to be the partner for such a visionary Telco", said Bert Vanaken, CEO @ WMW
