MWC: Truphone Launches Io3 Proposition


Truphone has announced the launch of their new IoT proposition Truphone Io3 at Mobile World Congress 2018.

The solution brings together Truphone’s SIM technology and global cellular network, alongside a suite of intelligence systems. Truphone Io3 offers MNOs, and chip and device manufactures complete, uninterrupted control of their supply chain. Truphone Io3 can be integrated via API to Amazon, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

For brands, Truphone Io3 promises faster time to market, increased incremental revenue and customer insight, with suppliers able to connect their devices without losing the efficiencies around their manufacturing and distribution channels.

Ralph Steffens, CEO, Truphone said: “Truphone has been pioneering the way people use their mobile devices for years. Now we are transforming the Internet of Things.

“Imagine taking a device with our secure embedded SIM, connecting that device to a mobile network anywhere in the world straight out of the box – as simply as Wi-Fi – with the additional benefit of actually understanding how the user interacts with the device.”

“We make IoT so simple that companies can experiment and make their ideas a reality without having to become telecommunications experts or engage with multiple vendors to bring an IoT product to market.”

“Apart from offering the complete stack in-house, Truphone Io3 is committed to an open marketplace, inviting players from right across the IoT ecosystem to offer their capabilities.

“Truphone Io3 has been designed to remove the barriers that impeded the growth in IoT to date. Our customers will have a unique ability to enrich their product proposition and deliver additional value to their customers way beyond what has previously been thought possible.”

The launch of Truphone Io3 follows Truphone’s 2017 acquisition of IoT SIM specialist Cellnetrix, following a new round of funding that saw Truphone raise an additional £255 million to retire its debt and invest in expanding connectivity beyond mobile phones and tablets.

Truphone’s Io3 proposition is strengthened by the news that the Truphone IoT SIM’s UICC accreditation process is nearing completion, making Truphone the only IoT solution provider with its own SIM stack.
