VDC Research Selects 1NCE as Winner of Embeddy Award

IoT Connectivity Service Awarded with Best of Show at Mobile World Congress 2018 

NATICK, MA | March 16, 2018 – VDC Research, the leading market intelligence and advisory firm for the connected world, announced that it selected 1NCE as the winner of the annual Embeddy Award for Best of Show at Mobile World Congress 2018.

The new company 1NCE backed by Deutsche Telekomn caused a stir at MWC when it announced its licensed spectrum IoT connectivity service at the price of 10 euros for 10 years of service including up to 500MB of data. That represents a radical price reduction relative to other comparable services on the market, said Steve Hoffenberg, Director of IoT & Embedded Technology at VDC Research. For its potential to bring connectivity to a much broader range of IoT devices than was previously economically feasible, VDC chose 1NCE as the winner of our Embeddy award for best of show at MWC.

We are very proud to receive this award from VDC research, proving the merit of 1NCE vision to enable billions of devices to enter the Internet of Things and to create social and business values, security, and innovation, said Alexander Bufalino, Chief Sales Officer of 1NCE. Our disruptive connectivity offering is not about spectacular use cases like autonomous vehicles or remote health control, but about tiny things driving fundamental change by operating through low bandwidth infrastructures.

VDC created and named the Embeddy Awards to highlight companies announcing important advances in the IoT and embedded software, hardware, and services industries. The Embeddy is awarded for the most cutting-edge product or service available to embedded software developers and system engineers.
