The Internet of Things is characterized by a broad landscape with many different communication technologies and protocols. Devices that are able to use multiple communication channels have a clear advantage. Cellular connectivity adds a lot of freedom and flexibility to a device, since it doesn’t require the installation of additional network infrastructures as cellular networks are already available as a standardized technology all over the world.
With 1NCE’s cellular based IoT connectivity, Tuya can massively expand the use cases and supported applications of its IoT platform and services. Tuya can also offer end-to-end IoT solutions by utilizing the benefits of cellular connectivity such as global coverage and ease of use. Adding cellular connectivity to its products will help Tuya to address new markets in the industry. Meanwhile, Tuya’s no-code building blocks and 1NCE’s ready to use products will enable developers to design smart devices in a fast and low cost way.
Currently, testing of the combined solutions has already taken place in Germany and in China. Initial product offerings are related to tracking objects such as pets, e-scooters, and security cameras. Additionally, both parties will add multiple use cases across various industries throughout the next coming months. It is expected that initial products such as device plus SIM bundle will be launched in Q3 2021.
Alexander P. Sator, CEO and Founder of 1NCE, said, “Tuya’s IoT platform is one of the world’s largest, and we believe that cooperation with Tuya will boost our business development and enable us to stand firm in the larger market.”
“1NCE is a veteran IoT network operator with extremely rich experience in IoT network operations”, said Tina Yu, General Manager for Tuya Smart Eurasia Region. “We are honored to join hands with a powerful brand in providing developers with low cost and easy to use solutions.”
