PodM2M Consolidates its Footprint in South America through Agreement with Satelicar
Announces Agreement to Include Best Signal SIMs in Satelicar GPS solutions
Mobile World Congress, Barcelona – PodM2M, the expert in connectivity for the M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) industries and Bolivian-based Satelicar which produces GPS solutions for the logistics, oil and gas and industrial machinery sectors have today announced that PodM2M’s Best Signal SIMs have been integrated into Satelicar solutions across all sectors.
PodM2M will provide its Best Signal SIMs based on its proprietary SIM solution which enables customers to take control of the SIM card when required to ensure maximum uptime and avoid points of failure on the network. In addition to its Best Signal SIMs, PodM2M has developed a solution called “FreeWay” which allows the SIM to automatically swap between independent core network profiles (IMSIs) to avoid downtime due to technical issues or changing market conditions. This, combined with an Over-The-Air platform to send instructions to the M2M SIM card remotely enables the customer to “future-proof” their devices, avoiding the need to swap SIMs out when market conditions change.
Satelicar had suffered from dependence on networks in the past and was looking for a way to take the control of the connectivity of their devices back into their own hands. Saul Raphael, CEO of Satelicar commented; “One of the network suppliers we worked with cut off our service without warning and we needed to find a different option. PodM2M gives us great service and excellent support.”
Sam Colley, CEO of Pod Group explained, “With the growth in connected devices as a result of the Internet of Things, more and more remote and mission critical applications are being developed making it essential to have control over the connectivity of devices. PodM2M’s solution provides a way of future proofing devices by allowing the customer to make changes to the connectivity profile remotely. This provides an essential way to back-up and future proof devices so that there is no need to swap SIMs out as pricing and other market conditions change.”
