Telia Estonia starts testing new IoT platform for enterprises

News

Telia Estonia has started trialling a self-service platform for its IoT customers, allowing them to manage SIM cards and mobile data traffic.

The operator is using 1oT's management platform and has rolled it out to selected customers. It comprises a web interface and API that can be integrated with third party solutions.

The platform can help enterprises to get real-time data about SIM sessions, discover their location, impose data limits, alert them to unusual behaviour, and communicate with other platforms and services.

Operators can also use the platform to set up custom price plans and automate billing.

The trial is being carried out in partnership with Telia's start-up lab VUNK.

Toomas Kärner, IoT Business Area Manager at Telia Estonia, said: “Today’s innovative IoT and M2M device makers are not just buying internet access, they need to be in full control of their SIM cards and mobile data sessions.

"All this enables to build disruptive IoT and M2M services, seize big data opportunities and create autonomous and automatic services.

"We see 1oT’s connectivity platform fulfilling this gap at an affordable price, and as the leading mobile operator in the region, we hope to become the first to provide the necessary tools even to the smallest players on this booming market."

In September, Tele2 launched a new platform for IoT customers aimed at making data management simpler and more cost effective.

KPN also recently launched an IoT platform for its enterprise customers.
