Stockholm, December 20, 2013: With CNet, B3IT and FYM now joining the Swedish M2M Service Enabler alliance (SMSE) it now counts 19 members and 5 sponsors.

"Our M2M alliance and its members are continuously gaining momentum in the rapidly developing world of connected things", says Magnus Melander, CEO at WBIRD and founder of SMSE. "It is exciting to see how sharp focus is enabling fruitful partnerships and international growth for our members", continues Mr Melander. 

Swedish M2M Service Enablers was founded in March 2012 to educate the market of the importance of M2M Service Enablement, to promote Sweden as the place to look for M2M Service Enablement solutions and to promote the members of the alliance. 

The message promoted by SMSE is that M2M Service Enablement is the key to a prospering M2M industry and that Service Enablers need to be specialized in the increasingly competitive and international market. 

A new M2M category for the Golden Mobile Award was initiated at the Swedish annual Mobile Industry Gala Event last year. The SMSE member Connode just won the Best M2M Company Award 2013 with their recent partnership with Telefonica in the UK Smart Meter deal as the key argument. The SMSE member Springworks won the M2M award 2012 with Volvo On Call as key argument.  

"Connode and Springworks are two examples of world class M2M companies in Sweden. Our alliance stands stronger than ever and we continue our mission to make Sweden the obvious place to go to for specialized M2M Service Enablement", concludes Melander.
