Telia claims IoT gamechanger offers 28% cheaper connectivity


Telia Global IoT Connectivity means "hyperscale" global IoT deployments can be controlled from one portal.

Telia says its new IoT solution is available now and can save companies on average 28% for IoT connectivity. Also, due to "a combination of innovative technologies and features the solution enables businesses and organizations to control and manage all their global IoT data and connectivity from one single portal".

Björn Hansen, Head of IoT at Telia, explained, “Customers that need to deploy their solutions globally have to deal with multiple operators and a number of regulatory and taxation issues to stay compliant.

"When needed, our solution goes beyond roaming and provides local subscriptions in highly regulated markets. Customers can now instantly control what their devices can or cannot access with a network that dynamically adapts to connectivity needs.”

The solution has four elements:

• Telia eSIM powered by eUICC,

• a global ecosystem of pre-integrated operators

• a programmable network and

• a cloud platform to manage it all.

“Enabled by our innovative solution architecture that brings connectivity and data to the cloud, customers will now be able to control and manage the global network of partners and orchestrate data and SMS flows in near real time. It sets the foundation for scaling in hyper speed,” Hansen adds.

Transforma Insights estimates that the global IoT market will grow to 24.1 billion devices in 2030, generating $1.5 trillion in annual revenue. The analyst house estimates that this new approach of providing global IoT connectivity can save companies on average 28 percent of the cost involved in global IoT deployments. A report on this research by Transforma Insights on behalf of Telia, will be released in February 2021.
