Brighter has selected Ericsson Device Connection Platform (DCP) as its connectivity management platform for m-health solutions.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Brighter will standardize its solutions using the cloud-based DCP and leverage the platform for lifecycle management, control and distribution of the Brighter One, a connected device for diabetes treatment.

Through DCP, telecom operators will be able to connect their subscribers to The Benefit Loop, which creates the potential for new and innovative service offerings. Brighter aims to secure contracts with operators that offer connectivity management services through DCP.

DCP, an Internet of Things (IoT) / machine-to-machine (M2M) platform, is designed to handle connectivity management, subscription management and OSS/BSS, enabling automation of business processes between operators and enterprises.

“IoT is a key competence area for Ericsson and we see m-health as a sector with strong market potential,” said Anders Olin, vice president, Product Area Network Functions, Business Unit Cloud & IP, Ericsson.

Truls Sjostedt, CEO of Brighter, said that its cooperation with Ericsson gives access both to the DCP platform and telecom operators.

Connected solutions such as Brighter One can be integrated into Brighter’s platform The Benefit Loop, in which patient data is continuously combined with additional relevant data to improve treatment and quality of life, said Ericsson in a statement.
