1NCE Launches NB-IoT Roaming Offering Powered by China Telecom Global

China Telecom Global (CTG), provider of integrated telecommunications services and 1NCE, an international Tier-1 IoT network carrier, announced the commercial launch of a NB-IoT roaming product for China. The IoT Flat Rate with NB-IoT/4G coverage can now be ordered.
For 10 Euros for a lifetime of 10 years, clients will get 500 MB data volume and 250 SMS. The 1NCE IoT Flat Rate focuses on long-lasting B2B applications with low data volumes such as asset tracking, tank monitoring, vehicle telemetry, smart metering, and waste management. 1NCE’s flat-rate model, which is designed for the lifetime of IoT-enabled devices, ensures maximum price transparency and easily calculable costs. This will enable international companies to enter the Chinese market with their IoT products, as well as Chinese companies to expand their IoT business worldwide. Besides NB-IoT service for mainland China, the new China+ SIM card also provides regional 4G coverage for markets including Hong Kong and Macao. The SIM allows for smooth transitioning between different mobile communication standards, including 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT and LTE-M. 1NCE is covering more than 100 countries worldwide with reliable cellular connectivity for a single tariff. 1NCE has already sold more than 5 million SIM cards so far since the launch of its business in 2018.
China Telecom’s 4G and 5G network supports a wide variety of IoT use cases. The number of NB-connected devices has already exceeded 70 million, ranging from smart home appliances to smart city devices. The collaboration with China Telecom Global makes 1NCE one of the first IoT carriers to offer a high-quality solution for seamless NB-IoT and 4G connectivity across the world. Its scalable footprint provides benefits to multinational customers such as original equipment manufacturers.

By overcoming technical obstacles in the integration between both networks and supporting a new NB-IOT roaming model, we have successfully enabled 1NCE to launch its regional NB-IoT offering. We are proud to have reached this milestone with 1NCE as one of our first commercial NB-IoT carrier partners.,

says He An, Executive Vice President, CTG.

Not only for those international customers needing IoT connectivity services for China, China Telecom Global is also actively supporting domestic Chinese manufactures for overseas NB deployment. 1NCE as our partner will allow us to extend our offering to more parts of the world.

With the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate we create a new, unprecedented standard for IoT connectivity for the markets in Greater China,

adds Alexander P. Sator, CEO of 1NCE.

We are pleased to start our coverage expansion together with China Telecom Global now. The Covid-19 pandemic is keeping the world in suspense – but innovation must continue. And connectivity, communication and digitization have never been more important.
