Enrique Monsalve, Technology Manager at ABB explained: "The problems of risk control in farming are very specific because, even though the functions required are simple (e.g pulse count, open/close electro-valves), the rural environment is such that we do not have all the elements needed to guarantee a continuous electricity supply. This means that whenever we want to install equipment we have to achieve minimum energy consumption".

A strong relationship with worldwide opportunities

Enrique Monsalve shared the reasons why Telefónica had been chosen: "The operator approached the relationship as a mid-term strategic positioning and a long-term positioning in the M2M market, in which both would contribute their experience and knowledge to grow together, which was extremely important to ABB. Both companies have the same focus on sustainability and business ethics, vital to be able to establish a long-term relationship. ABB España is responsible for supervising this solution in the ABB Group Worldwide, and Telefónica has created an international M2M unit, led from Spain, which has made relationships easier, not only in terms of engineering but also in marketing and sales.
