Embelin brings new solutions to Europe in five-year deal with Orange Business Services IoT connectivity

Equipment manufacturer and software developer, Embelin has signed a contract with Orange Business Services to provide global connectivity for its Internet of Things (IoT) products.

The deal will enable Embelin to expand in Europe and subsequently on a global scale. It also simplifies the provisioning process for IoT connectivity and significantly improves the user experience.

Headquartered in Finland, Embelin specialises in the design of embedded systems, IT and data management, supporting companies’ digitalisation. Its flagship product is REMUC, an advanced and versatile 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. REMUC is available for businesses and consumers, and comprises a controller installed in the vehicle, cloud processing and a mobile application for smartphones.

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 the Orange IoT connectivity service portal and APIs. This simplifies deployment, invoicing, cuts costs for customers and reduces the need for extensive support.

“We are using Orange SIM cards in all our current and upcoming products, and their IoT connectivity will help us expand internationally. In addition, the automated connectivity activation Orange provides for our market-leading REMUC mobile technology creates an outstanding user experience, which will allows us to gain market share with our product,” said Kai Simula, CEO, Embelin.

“Embelin has a clear vision for producing efficient solutions that meet customers’ requirements, and global IoT connectivity and reach are essential. 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. Together this provides Embelin’s customers with an easy-to-use solution and outcome that delivers confidence and peace of mind,” said Helmut Reisinger, executive vice president International at Orange Business Services.

The 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.

A global team of more than 700 Orange data-scientists and engineers design and develop these innovative services. Orange already supports over 12 million active objects across a variety of sectors, including Smart Cities, Healthcare, Automotive and Industry. The recent launch of Datavenue reaffirms the Orange commitment to supporting businesses with their digital transformation.
