Individual projects with large numbers of units cannot usually be covered with standard M2M tariffs. So, in the case of M2M solutions at an international level, it is essential that M2M/IoT tariffs are continually optimized for the requirements of the application concerned.
With the visibility required: because when a large number of devices and, thus, SIM cards, are involved, it is important that you maintain an overview of your mobile contracts and the connection status of your M2M SIM cards.
T-Mobile Austria offers an individual M2M tariff, based on your requirements, which takes into account the data volumes that you need, which M2M SIM cards will be used, the countries in which the application will run, what contract duration you want, etc. Entirely based on your individual needs.
And with the M2M Service Portal you also have all of your M2M SIM cards on your radar in real time, so that you can always work cost-efficiently and with as much automation as possible.
Our offering is tailored precisely to your needs. We offer you bespoke M2M tariffs based on SIM or SIM group for your individual requirements, based on your application scenario:
T-Mobile Austria, as part of Deutsche Telekom AG, one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies, offers reliable, cost-effective solutions on a global basis.

The M2M Service Portal is online worldwide and can be accessed via a secure Internet connection. Therefore you can monitor and administer your SIM cards from anywhere. So you have a centralized management point with a clear overview of your M2M application.
The M2M Service Portal ensures you always have all the important information about the card status at your fingertips in real time. The clear web interface gives you access to all the information and functions that are relevant to you. This enables you to manage the mobile services of your M2M products cost-effectively and securely:
Web-based portal for a holistic management of your M2M contracts.
From ordering your SIM cards, activation, changes in real time, through to assigning user- or application-specific information, you can control everything here yourself. The platform's bulk administration options enable you to administer your M2M lines, including user and role strategies, in a targeted way.
By assigning a "test status" to the M2M SIM card, the M2M Service Portal provides optimum possibilities for customer-specific logistics and fabrication tests.
From setting usage limits per SIM or SIM group, alerting or blocking when limits are exceeded, setting up permitted roaming countries, detecting/alerting if M2M SIM cards are used with devices that do not comply with the predefined device IMEI ID, through to alerting if unauthorized roaming networks are used, you have access to every option for transparently controlling your M2M contracts.
The M2M Service Portal offers not only a holistic overview of the M2M SIM cards and their respective status but also many options for accessing and processing various contract- and SIM-related values.
The M2M Service Portal application programming interface (API) can be used to administer all SIM cards managed in the M2M Service Portal and access information on these SIM cards via a web SOA / file transfer interface. There is nothing to prevent integration into customer systems and automation of processes.
The M2M Service Portal meets the requirements of disparate business models, enabling, among other things, complete hierarchies of resellers, solution providers and their customers to be mapped.
A compelling alternative for many businesses: you yourself invoice your customers for the mobile communications services. The "Wholesale" business model enables this. By providing detailed usage data, your customers can be billed directly. Compelling partner models and access to competitive prices make T-Mobile Austria an attractive partner in the M2M wholesale sector.

T-Mobile Austria offers you an M2M SIM card in the classic plug-in format for your individual M2M project, along with a solderable minimized MFF SIM card (MFF = M2M form factor). This is an M2M SIM chip which was developed specifically for industrial requirements.
The traditional plug-in-SIM card is mainly used in cell phones, but is also suitable for many M2M requirements under normal conditions of use.
The micro-SIM card (also known as 3FF SIM) is a smaller version of the plug-in M2M SIM card, which is used in special cell phones and tablet PCs.
The specially developed MFF M2M SIM card or the SIM chip meets particular requirements for industrial usage. Compared with the plug-in SIM card, it is smaller, sturdier and can be installed automatically.
The MFF SIM card is soldered and is more resistant against physical influences e.g. in the case of large temperature fluctuations. All of which gives it a much longer service life than the traditional SIM card. Fixed integration of the MFF SIM card also protects against theft. Of course, MFF SIM cards can be installed automatically using the pick-and-place process. The pick-and-place process involves an automated procedure where a machine selects a certain component (in this case the SIM chip) and places it in the device in the right place. SIM chips can be integrated in the designated devices using this process.
T-Mobile Austria has set itself the goal of meeting the quality requirements throughout the supply chain, i.e., from the customer, via T-Mobile Austria as the M2M SIM card supplier, through to the first- and second-level suppliers.
Against this background, T-Mobile Austria has installed an M2M SIM card quality management system whose task is to maintain the product and process quality of the entire supply chain at the highest level and to continually improve it.

Machine to machine (M2M) can be used profitably in almost any area of the economy – from industry and transport, energy and security, through to retail and the public sector. In addition to extending business segments, the optimization of complex processes and the associated reduction in costs constitute the main customer benefits of machine to machine.
M2M makes workflows simpler, processes leaner, and enables entirely new business models. Typical advantages include remote administration, monitoring, optimization, and notification functions.
M2M communication gives you real-time data that provides the basis for new services, business models, target groups and markets. This is of particular interest to you if you want to develop your business from one-off sales to models with ongoing customer relationships.
Remote diagnostics and maintenance functions are essential for sustainable, inexpensive service structures. Many tasks can be completed remotely without having to be on-site.
M2M solutions can monitor the status of the connected devices and their environment in real time. This enables any faults or failures to be detected immediately and further harm can be avoided.
The automated sharing of information opens up a wide range of opportunities for optimizing processes. Automation can make manual activities, which may be error-prone, quicker, more efficient and more secure.
