PARIS, FRANCE and NEEDHAM, MA, USA, March 22, 2016 - Altice N.V. (Euronext: ATC, ATCB), an international telecom and media group, its subsidiary SFR, the second French global telecommunications operator, and PTC (Nasdaq: PTC) today announced the deployment of PTC’s industry-leading ThingWorx® IoT platform across France (SFR) and Portugal (Portugal Telecom).    This agreement reflects the shared strategy between the two companies to facilitate IoT implementations across SMBs, and to offer a complete, secure, and scalable IoT platform for the rapid development of IoT applications.

Altice is a fast-growing global group with presence in Western Europe, the United States, Israel, and the French Overseas Territories.

With PTC ThingWorx technology, Altice will be able to offer a wide range of IoT applications to its customers.

ThingWorx is an innovative platform for rapidly developing and deploying applications that recognize and capitalize on the opportunity and value to be found in the emerging IoT market. The ThingWorx fast, simplified, and unified approach to develop IoT applications enables companies to iteratively innovate business processes significantly faster than conventional methods and tools, thus accelerating time to value, reducing cost and risk, and transforming how products, people, and systems connect and interact.

The ThingWorx platform makes it easy for partners, such as Altice, to deliver the most relevant solutions and provide access to a large number of devices, machines or natively compatible connected modules. Companies that require access to more specific business solutions can also rely on a set of certified technology partners in the ThingWorx ecosystem. The platform provides companies with a large variety of application program interfaces for ease in sharing data with third-party solutions.

“After a thorough review of IoT technology options, we selected the ThingWorx IoT platform to get us to market much faster and to reach a wider group of constituents – SMB to enterprise – in a secure and scalable manner,” said Michel Combes, COO Altice, Chairman and CEO SFR. “This is an important next step in driving our IoT strategy and the many innovative services and solutions that we are working to bring to market.”

“The launch of IoT services and solutions across SFR and Portugal Telecom opens up new areas of business, broadens our coverage, and gives us new reach in the European market,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “We are looking forward to working with Altice as they build their IoT footprint and bring exciting new value to customers around the globe.”
