Saudi Arabian operator, Mobily, has signed a five-year partnership agreement with Pacific Controls, a provider of ICT managed services, to jointly offer machine-to-machine (M2M) energy management solutions for industries in Saudi Arabia.

The two companies will launch M2M services for sectors including energy and utilities, government, healthcare, financial services, and retail.

As part of the agreement, Mobily and Pacific Controls will develop a command and control centre in Riyadh, which will use the latest M2M technology platform.
