Award for outstanding commitment and successful cooperation

Planegg, March 12th, 2019

Atlantik Elektronik, provider of innovative cellular solutions, has been confirmed by Telekom Deutschland GmbH as a Basis Partner for 2018. This award is given by the Telekom, in recognition of their best-performing and most committed partners in the South / South West region, who have made the biggest contribution to accelerating the implementation of telecommunications solutions into new markets and applications.

The primary focus of this partnership is supporting joint projects for Machine-to-Machine communication (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), especially for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

Telekom Deutschland aims for the SME Partner Program to support new customers and product-developers by bundling the Telekom’s strengths in IT and telecommunications, together with the strengths of their partners. Competent solution partners with their own technical strengths are crucial to this goal. The overarching goal of the SME partner program is to support the entire value chain to win-win-win situations.

“With growing digitalization, especially within the German SME community, our partnerships are playing an ever-increasing role for us. The only way we will be able to make our customers quickly and professionally fit for the future, is with the support of partners, who offer their own expertise and technical specialism”, according to Stefan Flory, Partner Manager South/Southwest at Telekom Deutschland.

The SME partner program is split into three levels. Partners are assigned points according to their revenue and quality performance, with the number of points deciding which level the partner reaches.

“We are delighted with this award. Our IoT and M2M know-how forms a strong basis for “win-win” situations from which our customers and the Telekom will benefit. We are looking forward to working closely with Telekom Deutschland GmbH during 2019 to achieve even bigger successes”, commented Ottmar Flach, CEO of Atlantik Elektronik.

Last year Atlantik Elektronik and Telekom Deutschland jointly organized a seminar about Narrow-Band IoT, the Telekom’s licensed and powerful solution for low-energy M2M cellular communication. On the 2nd April 2019 another workshop will take place with the support of the Telekom, this time on the subject of LPWAN technologies. Anybody who is interested in LPWAN wireless technologies will benefit from applied examples of the technology in practice.

The award “Telekom Basis Partner” was given to Atlantik Elektronik during the Embedded World trade show in Nuremberg, February 2019.
