Orange said it simplifies the provisioning process for IoT connectivity and improves user experience
Equipment manufacturer and software developer Embelin has signed a five-year deal with Orange Business Services to provide global network connectivity for its Internet of Things (IoT) products.
The contract will enable Embelin to expand in to new markets in Europe and thereafter on a global scale.
Orange Business Services is providing Embelin with global IoT connectivity, SIM cards, a management portal, as well as service and remote management. Embelin can provision IoT connections automatically with Orange’s IoT connectivity service portal and APIs. This simplifies deployment, invoicing, cuts costs for customers and reduces the need for extensive support.
Headquartered in Finland, Embelin specialises in the design of embedded systems, IT and data management, supporting companies’ digitalisation. Its flagship product is REMUC, a remote control and monitoring system which can be installed in any imaginable smart target.
In the car industry, for example, it allows users to track vehicle location and control in-vehicle heaters (essential for winter driving) remotely with mobile devices. The product is available for businesses and consumers, and comprises a controller installed in the vehicle, cloud processing and a mobile application for smartphones.
“We are using Orange SIM cards in all our current and upcoming products, and their IoT connectivity will help us expand internationally,” said Kai Simula, CEO, Embelin. “In addition, the automated connectivity activation Orange provides for our market-leading REMUC mobile technology creates an outstanding user experience, which will allow us to gain market share with our product.”
“Embelin has a clear vision for producing efficient solutions that meet customers’ requirements, and global IoT connectivity and reach are essential,” added Helmut Reisinger, executive vice president international at Orange Business Services.
“Embelin can enjoy tangible business benefits from having a single global provider for its IoT communication infrastructure, such as seamless SIM card ordering, activation and tracking through a dedicated portal.”
Orange Business Services’ IoT connectivity service is part of Datavenue, a modular IoT and analytics solution. To enable advanced analysis and decision-making, the Datavenue solution encompasses the selection of relevant data and objects, their reliable and secure connection, and their management in the customer information system environment, said Orange.
