As the cellular Internet of Things market is maturing and evolving to deploy tailored IoT such as CAT-M and NB-IoT, the companies believe a different deployment approach will be required. The two companies are partnering to bring to market a next generation approach that will allow the digital distribution of mobile subscriptions on demand to IoT connectivity modules. The joint solution will enable global interoperability, reduced total cost of ownership for end-customers and improved time-to-market for enterprises and device makers looking to roll out large-scale IoT projects.
Together, Telit and OT-Morpho will leverage their combined technical expertise as well as their worldwide customer and carrier eco-systems to jumpstart the IoT narrowband cellular economy. The focus will be on streamlining the provisioning and subscription management process for next generation Cat-M and NB-IoT connectivity.
"We believe our new approach will also offer significant advantages to MNO partners – including but not limited to – new market opportunities for services, minimal impact on existing business processes, cost savings on SIMs logistics while maintaining the highest level of security and are working with some early adopters to fully leverage these," said Oozi Cats, CEO of Telit.
"Following the recently announced Telit simWISE offering, this new solution will further target the coming wave of NB-IoT and Low Cat devices enabling a global IoT centric subscription management service, reduce total cost of ownership for end-customers and improve time-to-market for IoT developers."
"OT-Morpho and Telit see the massive opportunity represented by the IoT market and believe that as key ecosystem players they have a vital role to fulfill in helping MNOs and enterprises roll out their IoT strategies. By streamlining subscription management and by bringing solutions that can enhance the security and integrity of connected devices, we are fulfilling critical industry needs in order for the IoT to reach its full potential," said Didier Lamouche, CEO of OT-Morpho.
