Teltonika and Truphone have joined in a strategic partnership that will enable Teltonika devices to use Truphone’s eSIM and cellular connectivity technology—ultimately freeing them from the constraints of national and regional wireless networks.
Initially, this technology will be used in a range of automotive and personal trackers including the FMB001 (OBD – easy), FMB120 (advanced), FMB640 (professional), TMT250 (personal tracker) and others. These will be used in everything from cars, to security hardware, to field services systems for enterprises.
Another focus of the partnership will be to explore LTE-M and NB-IoT, a move that is intended to demonstrate both companies’ commitment to improving the whole IoT ecosystem for businesses, devices and the people that use them.
This partnership will simplify the deployment of tracking services worldwide to the hundreds of Teltonika enterprise customers — all using the power of the Truphone technology and connectivity.
Bruno Duarte, Truphone’s Head of IoT/M2M commented: “Teltonika is a major IoT innovator, and one of the world’s largest tracking and networking hardware manufacturers. As an eSIM pioneer and the only truly global cellular connectivity provider, Truphone is a natural partner for this smart and forward-thinking company. Together we will be taking an enormous leap towards realising the true potential of IoT.”
Antanas Šegžda, CEO, Teltonika added: “Teltonika has a strong heritage in innovation, focusing on improving our products and services to better address customer needs. This partnership will open up vast new opportunities to change the ways our devices connect—ultimately ensuring our leading hardware comes equipped with a truly integrated user experience.”
Ralph Steffens, CEO, Truphone added: “By integrating eSIM and global connectivity into IoT enabled devices, manufacturers no longer have to rely on traditional providers and don’t need to provision their devices for a specific country or region. This simple, yet profound, shift has the potential to reshape the future of IoT, and global industry at large. I am extremely proud that Teltonika and Truphone are leading the charge.”
