This project is a new step forward in the market and will have an immense impact on industries that require to integrate connectivity into their systems. Going forward, Freeeway is expanding the service offering on IoT connectivity with Mobile Network Providers that want to sell their IoT products and services within the ALSO Cloud Marketplace.
Regarding the partnership with Freeeway, ALSO’s Director IoT Solutions Stefaan Top said: “Although network operators have successfully deployed LTE-M Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) in the past years, businesses wishing to adopt IoT solutions are confronted with a lack of transparency and manageability when subscribing to such network services. The integration of the Freeeway Connectivity Management Platform and the ALSO Cloud Market Place addresses this market need. Whoever wishes to use IoT connectivity in total transparency and manage all their IoT connectivity needs across borders can now subscribe to AllThingsTalk Connectivity+ through their preferred ALSO Managed Service Partner, even if they wish to start with just one SIM.”
