Cloud-connected Vending Machines Coming from Everything Everywhere and NSN

Everything Everywhere, the joint venture that operates the networks for T-Mobile (UK) and Orange (UK), is working with Nokia Siemens Networks to provide vending machine owners with remote stock monitoring, increased customer interaction and multiple payment methods. Through the international partnership, vending machines will be linked to Nokia Siemens Networks’ VendMe application and installed with Everything Everywhere SIM cards, connecting them to both the UK’s largest 3G network and France Telecom and Deutsche Telekom’s international footprint.

Nokia Siemens Networks’ VendMe application is a vending management tool hosted in the cloud, and managed and integrated through a coupling of the company’s Machine to Machine (M2M) platform, Cumulocity, and Everything Everywhere’s M2M Management Platform.
