Etisalat goes green with M2M
Etisalat and Pacific Controls to offer sustainable development apps
Etisalat Group and Pacific Controls, a global automation specialist, this week signed an agreement to offer Machine-to-Machine based sustainable development applications to clients across Etisalat's footprint in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
Khalifa Al Shamsi, chief digital services officer, Etisalat Group, said that the partnership would help the telco to offer managed energy services capable of reducing customers' carbon footprints.
"Energy consumption today is at an all-time high, leading to increased ecological and environmental pressure to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. Etisalat is well positioned to spearhead this initiative in alliance with Pacific Controls, leveraging technologies like M2M to reduce the carbon footprint of the UAE," he said.
Dilip Rahulan, executive chairman of Pacific Controls added that the company's technology and programme were able to help businesses reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint by up to 30%.
The agreement was signed in Dubai by Khalifa Al Shamsi and Dilip Rahulan.
