ConnectedYou and Truphone announce partnership to deliver a unique and global IoT service ecosystem
ConnectedYou (CY) welcomes Truphone on board the ConnectedYou ecosystem as an "IoT Accelerator" partner.
London and Copenhagen—25th July 2018
The partnership allows customers to connect their devices globally to Truphone's robust and trusted network. As part of the deal, enterprises will also be able to adopt Truphone's full suite of IoT solutions: global connectivity, remote sim provisioning and an integrated device management platform through the ConnectedYou IoT Service Platform.
This represents a major step for enterprises who have, or seek to procure, multiple service providers, granting them full independence to expand their services after rollout.
Access is enabled using ConnectedYou eSIMs in both plugin and embedded formats and is managed through a single ConnectedYou web console and unified APIs.
Velipekka Kuoppala, Chief Business Officer, ConnectedYou said:
"This is a key milestone in the history of IoT. Truphone is not only a major player in global connectivity but also a technology partner to us.
"This announcement speaks to Truphone's quality of service, our companies' mutual values and our ongoing mission to grow a network of partners we believe will accelerate IoT. Ultimately, though, Truphone is simply one of very few IoT businesses with the capability to provide what enterprises will demand tomorrow, today. More of such trusted and fearless innovators like Truphone are needed to take IoT where it should be.
"ConnectedYou welcomes Truphone and in partnership enables simplified onboarding and management of IoT devices and shorter time to market with freedom to switch services.
"Together, we are stronger, and we enable enterprises to build products today with flexibility to evolve in future, which is most important for IoT devices."
Steve Alder, Chief Business Development Officer at Truphone added:
"The Internet of Things carries tremendous potential—potential that has been promised to enterprises for many years now and not delivered. At Truphone, we're working towards a future where IoT is both an open platform and an open architecture that allows companies to get their devices connected in a simple and efficient way.
"This partnership with ConnectedYou is an important step along that journey. CY has shown that it is possible, through the right collaboration of the best minds and the best technology, to join up platforms, break down silos and truly create an internet of everything. We share that ambition, and I am personally delighted to work with ConnectedYou in making it a reality."
