Last week, Lauri wrote a good piece about keeping things real, because businesses have simple business models at their core. As one of our values, simplicity has led Messente to build a reliable and powerful SMS API and user authentication API for businesses and brands to communicate with their customers globally.

While we pride ourselves in doing global A2P SMS and 2FA very well, one of our sister companies, 1oT, uses a similar methodology of simplicity to do global internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity really well.

Solving the challenge of connectivity for IoT

Connecting devices to networks, and ultimately the internet, is not a new concept. A few years ago, before an IoT talk in Portland, Oregon, Rob Tiffany gave me a brief synopsis of the evolution of IoT and how technologists have been connecting devices to networks for decades. Vending machines, for example, have been connected to networks and the internet before the term “internet of things” became a buzzword.

Concepts around IoT became more fathomable as mobile wireless networks progressed. However, connectivity has been one of the biggest challenges for IoT hardware and software companies. There are thousands of use cases around IoT –from healthcare devices to agriculture –and some connected devices need low-frequency connections that travel far, while others need fast connections and a large pipe to send a lot of data to the cloud.

Mobile network operators can provide such connectivity through the integration of SIM cards into devices, which is a solution to the connectivity problem, yet creates another complexity: mobile network operators themselves. There are hundreds of them across the globe.

1oT tackles that complexity with a simple approach, allowing those in the IoT business –startups or enterprises –to focus on their business models.

With 1oT’s multi-carrier SIM and online terminal, those in the IoT industry can connect their devices to mobile networks across the world using SIM cards from a single company that has brokered relationships with hundreds of mobile network operators.

Whether it’s a startup focusing on IoT or an enterprise dabbling in connected devices, they only need a single partner for IoT data connectivity –a partner that keeps it real and makes things simple.

Learn more about 1oT by visiting their website. And if you’re our client and you’re dabbling in IoT, send a note to your account manager to connect you with the right person at 1oT.
