A global IoT solution for monitoring indoor air quality

Poor indoor air quality is detrimental to our health, economy and workplace productivity, especially in an environment dominated by COVID-19. Real-time airborne monitoring can help prevent the spread of airborne disease, including COVID-19 pathogens. Now, more than ever, businesses need measures in place to protect their workforce and customers from potential airborne hazards and disruptions. Download as a PDF

Why enterprises are choosing eSIM for simple and flexible global IoT connectivity

The pace of cellular connections is poised to accelerate radically as 5G and massive IoT become mainstream when the number of connections is expected to exceed 10 billion by 2030. This era will see smart cities, logistics and advanced automotive applications become routine and the sheer volume of connections means today’s approaches to connecting devices will be inefficient and impractical. Instead of millions of devices, there will be billions, and so the traditional SIM card that is slotted into a device when deployed will not be sustainable for many IoT business cases. This report explores how eSIM will play a fundamental role in massive and global IoT and is the ideal solution for Enterprises and OEMs looking to build new, value-added, connected applications for their customers.
