IoT Portal: Telia Launches Hyperscale Solution

“Telia Global IoT Connectivity” is the name of a new solution from Swedish telecom-provider Telia that is available immediately. It contains integrated security features and enables businesses and organizations to control and manage all their global IoT data and connectivity through single IoT portal.

The solution consists of four main parts:

  • Telia eSIM powered by eUICC,
  • a global ecosystem of pre-integrated operators
  • a unique programmable network
  • a cloud platform to manage it all.

The analyst firm Transforma Insights estimates that the global IoT market will grow to 24.1 billion devices by 2030, generating $ 1.5 trillion in annual revenue. Still, companies that purchase and use IoT connectivity globally face several commercial and technical pitfalls in their global deployments – and they also face the growing challenge of managing their network of operators and IoT data as the number of connected devices grows.

Telia Global IoT Connectivity hopes to bring businesses and organizations simplicity and a new layer of control of their data and connectivity on top of pre-existing connectivity-management platforms.

This is a true game changer for IoT connectivity,

says Björn Hansen, Head of IoT at Telia.

Customers that need to deploy their solutions globally have to deal with multiple operators and a number of regulatory and taxation issues to stay compliant. When needed, our solution goes beyond roaming and provides local subscriptions in highly regulated markets. Customers can now instantly control what their devices can or cannot access with a network that dynamically adapts to connectivity needs.

IoT network access through local profiles is currently available in over ten countries on four continents. With an ecosystem of over 400 roaming partners and a cloud-native platform, the solution enables a secure way of connecting products on a global scale. Transforma Insights estimates that the new approach can save companies on average 28 percent of the cost involved in global IoT deployments. A report on this research by Transforma Insights on behalf of Telia will be released in February 2021.
