A large European telecoms company has taken tracking technology from Ubisense, the Cambridge UK specialist, in a contract worth more than €1.7 million.
The orders are for software products and related services to facilitate the fibre planning and maintenance of the customer’s extensive network, according to CEO Richard Green.
He said: “This blue chip operator has selected our real time location intelligence software in order to significantly enhance the productivity of their fibre planning operation as they extend the broadband capacity of their network.
“The contract extensions exemplify the value of the group’s now converged product suite and the increasing momentum in our transition towards a solutions-based business model with greater scalability.”
Ubisense real time location intelligence solutions enable companies to optimise their business processes by keeping track of key assets.
Its software is used by a number of blue chip customers around the world, such as AGCO, Airbus, Aston Martin, BMW, Cablevision, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom, Duke Energy, John Deere, Hyundai, MINI and VW.
Rapidly-expanding Ubisense remains headquartered in Cambridge but now has offices in the US, Canada, Germany, France, Korea, Japan and Singapore.
