floLIVE, a provider of Software-defined Connectivity (SDC) and network solutions for IoT devices, has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC), a trade group that acts as an IoT industry accelerator.
floLIVE has made a name for itself in providing seamless global connectivity solutions to adopters of IoT technology that eliminate concerns about high costs, privacy regulations and permanent roaming restrictions, or poor availability for global IoT projects. For its part, the IMC is a community of 25,000 product makers and enterprise users that buy IoT solutions that are spread out around the globe.
“Our global connectivity service and extensive IMSI library, the largest of its kind, allow for multi-carrier localised coverage” says Asaf Gigi, floLIVE’s head of marketing, who will take a seat on the IMC’s board of governors. “Our cloud management solutions are designed to ease global IoT deployments and make these cost-effective for the first time.
We think the IMC’s rank-and-file Adopter Membership tracks well with this. They’re IoT business users with problems to solve, with excellent representation in North America, Europe, and Asia.”
floLIVE has developed its own full suite of connectivity management solutions, including a dedicated 5G/LTE core network, robust platform for device, eSIM, and connectivity management, and a fully featured BSS. All of these solutions are infrastructure-agnostic and therefore applicable to a broad range of industries. “We like the fact that IMC’s Adopter membership covers 27 different vertical markets, which will help us with our reach” says Gigi.
“We welcome floLIVE to the IMC board. With their appeal to global customers, they will be a great fit with the demographics of our membership and we look forward to having them participate in our events,” says Kim Bybjerg, IMC chair and head of European business operations at Tata Communications. Since the pandemic, these IMC events routinely draw over 1,000 visitors, with ca. 70% of those identifying as buyers of IoT solutions.
