TNS and Telstra partner for wireless SIM management for payment devices

Telstra M2M Wireless Control Centre

Telecommunications company, Telstra, is partnering with data communications and interoperability solutions provider, Transaction Network Services, to deliver wireless SIM management for payment devices in Australia (press release). TNS is introducing the Telstra M2M Wireless Control Centre to provide a managed wireless service. The solution aims to double TNS’ network reach in Australia and streamline operations through a web-based interface for SIM card ordering, provisioning, activation and management, and will also help with fraud management via its alerts engine and real time reporting. In addition, the solution aims to minimise the cost of provisioning, logistics, data usage fees and fraudulent use of M2M assets in the Australian eftpos and ATM market.

“Telstra is pleased to partner with global payments expert TNS as it seeks to better connect its customers to payments services,” said Mike Cihra, Director M2M and Partners at Telstra. “Using our new M2M Control Centre gives TNS more control and flexibility so it can provide Telstra M2M SIM cards to Australian payment device owners when they need them. In turn, TNS customers can now tap into Telstra’s Mobile Network, powered by Next G, which is Australia’s largest mobile network, providing them with better indoor coverage and allowing them to use their devices in more places.”
