In addition, the 1NCE connectivity service is backed by advanced cloud technology which makes commissioning of a device’s SIM, centralized control of connected devices, and network configuration quick and easy to implement. A sophisticated API allows direct implementation of 1NCE’s SIM card management functions into customers’ own applications. The 1NCE IoT Connectivity Suite, already included in the price, also provides deep integration with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud service, providing for easy management of telematics devices operating via the AWS cloud.
Arne Assmann, Head of Strategy and Development at 1NCE, said: “Fleet managers are looking for predictable pricing and reliable service from providers of telematics services such as asset tracking and consignment data logging. The IoT Flat Rate service from 1NCE provides the surest way to achieve reliability and predictability when connecting telematics black boxes. It gives gold-standard connectivity thanks to the coverage provided by Tier One companies such as Deutsche Telekom, and the one-time €10 fee gives telematics companies certainty about the cost of connectivity for the device’s lifetime.”
The 1NCE IoT Flat Rate is endorsed by Italy-based Targa Telematics, which uses the service to connect fleets operated by car rental or leasing companies, car manufacturers and large companies, as well as to provide services to insurance companies and airport service operators.
“When monitoring over 500,000 connected systems, mostly vehicles from the major car rental and leasing companies as well as shared fleets and airport handlers, data availability is crucial to guarantee the best service to our customers,” says Alberto Falcione, Vice President Sales of Targa Telematics. “1NCE has been proven to provide IoT connectivity that meets our high expectations in terms of flexibility, reliability and worldwide coverage.”
