Telit’s simWISE solution avoids the cost, complexity and time to market limitations of physical SIMs
As a leading Brazilian MVNO, Porto Seguro Conecta’s offering gives their customers new ways to reduce their IoT device footprint and streamline ongoing operations
London, June 12, 2018 – Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced Porto Seguro Conecta has begun offering Telit’s simWISE solution to its IoT customers across Brazil in verticals including agrobusiness, fleet management and utilities. With simWISE, Porto Seguro Conecta customers now can create lower cost IoT devices, and provision and maintain them remotely without costly truck rolls.
Telit simWISE replaces the traditional SIM card and tray with a module-embedded SIM technology. This architecture significantly reduces the cost of manufacturing and owning connected products—major benefits in the highly cost-sensitive IoT market.
“With over 700,000 connected devices across Brazil, Porto Seguro Conecta was looking for a local partner in the Brazilian IoT market, Telit was a natural choice,“ said Mario Calcagnini, Telit LATAM IoT Solution Director. “This partnership is the latest example of how Telit is a global company with a local footprint.“
“Telit’s simWISE solution gives fleet owners, agricultural companies and other businesses unprecedented flexibility and savings,“ said Jeferson Baggio, Porto Seguro Conecta Head of Sales. “We’re excited to offer this industry-first technology, which will revolutionize the Brazilian IoT market by slashing the hardware and operational costs that make traditional SIM designs a major barrier to deployment.“
