This acquisition enables us to continue to deliver on our promise to support customers and ensure they derive the maximum benefits from their IoT initiatives.”

M2M will continue to operate under the M2M DataGlobal name and utilise their office in Santiago, Chile for LATAM headquarters. Elionae Silva will continue to serve as general manager of the M2M business unit. Felix Lluberes and Rob Adams, who have advised M2M previously, will continue to serve as advisors to the company.

“Since our inception, we have been uniquely focused on our customers and providing specialised support for their needs as we constantly innovate,” said Elionae Silva, a general manager of M2M. “This opportunity with OptConnect will allow us as an organisation to continue to be the IoT solution of the future as we continue to grow and scale.”
