The Netherlands, Oct 4, 2017. ASPIDER-NGI, provider of independent solutions for managing IoT connectivity, announced availability of IoT eConnect. IoT eConnect is an integrated IoT solution providing instant global connectivity, without the contractual and technical lock-ins.
CEO: “Removing Lock-ins”
“We have taken a new approach to disrupt the connectivity market.” says Jan Mooijman, CEO ASPIDER-NGI. “Companies face huge barriers in getting the IoT connectivity they need. “It is common to see 2 year lock-ins, unchangeable price plans, minimum monthly fees, contract penalties. “The industry is still following the old lock-in of voice-based sales models.” Jan continued “Our goal therefore is to allow companies to change operators without a SIM swap. “This reduces the high cost of switching and removes a major obstacle to large-scale projects.”
“As a trade association for business consumers, we are very interested in these new developments.” stated Jan van Alphen, Chairman from BTG and Board Member of the INTUG. “As part of the current digital transformation, the number of application capabilities on eSIM will increase significantly. From our user perspective, it is therefore an important added value that the many current eSIM restrictions be eliminated. Therefore we think it’s good that the market is orienting itself on new kind of services and solutions. For this reason it’s very important that new business cases be developed in collaboration.”
Control and Flexibility
IoT eConnect removes these barriers with online access and the simple controls to activate, control and analyse, built on decades of experience delivering connectivity solutions to the big operators and integrators. But the key value is in the open, transparent way that IoT eConnect breaks the traditional commercial lock-ins.
- Activate and deactivate SIMs when you want.
- Pay only for what you use only on active SIMs.
- Flexibility on price plans and bundle sharing, change price plans when you want.
- Optimal coverage means that you can use and choose the coverage per country.
- And it is your SIM. You keep it and you select the operator you want, when you want.
IoT eConnect includes eSIM technologies from partnership between ASPIDER-NGI and OT Morpho. “We are seeing more companies taking control over their connectivity using standard eSIM technology.” said Michel Zwijnenberg, VP of IoT at ASPIDER-NGI . “Removing the need for SIM swaps is a big step forward. Therefore we decided that every SIM we ship will be an eSIM. The eSIM creates some great partnership plays for SIs, app devs and resellers.”
