Telit and Tele2 Expand Collaboration on Pan-European Broadband IoT Services
Both companies will present new Pan-European LTE offering at Telit booth at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona
London and Barcelona, February 24, 2016 – Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it is expanding the collaboration with Tele2 on Pan-European LTE IoT connectivity services. Telit and Tele2 now offer custom data plans with predictable pricing, no hidden fees or roaming charges for high bandwidth IoT applications, such as video monitoring, digital signage or real-time asset tracking – with LTE connectivity across the entire EU. These new high data roaming packages range from 50MB to 2GB per month and include a 100MB free trial.
“Telit Pan EU proved to be the most comprehensive offering for IoT Connectivity in the market, thanks to superior roaming performance with tier 1 MNOs, simple pricing and with unmatched connectivity management tools,” said Sammy Yahiaoui, Vice President IoT Services Sales EMEA at Telit. “With extended LTE coverage, we are enabling new types of applications and assisting customers that need to migrate their current design from 2G to 4G.”
Customers can manage their entire IoT deployment via the easy-to-use Telit IoT Portal, which includes comprehensive connectivity management tools for connection provisioning, operation and analysis across wireless networks – increasing performance and reducing cost. The new Pan-European broadband offering supports Optimus, Telit’s retroactive billing optimization engine. With Optimus, customers can automatically have their SIMs retroactively assigned to the best monthly broadband subscription (for example 50MB, 100MB, 250MB), thereby saving operation cost and avoiding bill shock.
Roar Bolt-Hansen, Sales Director at Tele2 IoT comments, “With more and more applications requiring a higher bandwidth, in all different verticals, we strongly believe in these LTE roaming plans that we are now offering in partnership with Telit. The customer need is there and this is yet another example on how we can create great value together with our partners.”
Tele2 will co-exhibit at Telit’s booth at Mobile World Congress, taking place February 27 – March 2, 2017. The booth is in Hall 5, booth 5E61.
