Telna demos new IoT Connect eSIM router with out-of-box global connectivity

Telna, a vertically integrated Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider of global end-to-end connectivity solutions, demonstrated the latest IoT Connect, the first enterprise-grade, multi-modem, multi-IMSI eSIM router, at Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2018.

The IoT Connect is a truly end-to-end solution, complete with hardware, global network connectivity, and a management portal, for the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications.

Today’s global businesses are rapidly adopting IoT solutions that connect their equipment, transport, and people in order to increase efficiency, performance, and cost-savings. Yet for most enterprises, deploying the IoT solution leads to the burden of managing multiple vendors, long timelines for deployment, and high costs.

“Telna is the first fully integrated service provider to introduce an enterprise-grade, multi-channel eSIM router bundled out-of-the-box with global connectivity,” said Mathew Stein, Telna CTO. “We help enterprises drastically reduce deployment times, management overhead, and costs by providing a complete solution with one management portal, one invoice, and one direct line to 24/7 support.”

Telna offers competitive rates and all usage is consumption-based, so enterprises are billed only for data that is used. Plus, bandwidth can be pooled to further optimise costs.

Telna’s end-to-end solution includes:

Hardware

The IoT Connect provides high bandwidth 4G LTE connectivity without physical SIMs. The multi-channel device houses up to 4 multi-band modems (Cat 4, Cat 6, Cat 11, Cat 12, M1, etc.) which are field-upgradeable and 5G-ready. The modems can be custom-configured for maximum transfer rates and coverage requirements.

Network

The IoT Connect provides access to multiple top-tier networks in each country for complete redundancy—keeping mission critical operations online. Telna is a US-based, FCC-licensed, mobile network operator and GSMA member. With over 18 network partners and 300+ bilateral agreements, Telna has direct access to 2,000+ networks worldwide.

Management

All devices can be monitored and managed in real time through one user-friendly, cloud-based management portal. The SIM-free IoT Connect is managed remotely for over-the-air network diagnostics and configuration. Custom APIs allow for the acquisition of real-time network data such as CDRs, location updates, cell IDs, etc.

The customer has the option of enabling load balancing or channel bonding to leverage Telna’s global cloud footprint. In addition, customers can choose the firewall service of their choice as a cloud-hosted solution.
