1. Background

Tracking devices are the classic “constrained” devices with usually low bandwidth usage within the Internet of Things.  They need to be able to work mobile and independent from an external power source.

 

Therefore, Mictrack has specialized in cellular LPWAN technologies such as NB-IoT and LTE-M. These technologies are globally available, standardized, and secure and the ideal connectivity solution when it comes to mobile sensor-to-cloud communication.

2. Challenge

Delivering tracking equipment to customers all around the globe leaves the challenge of which cellular connectivity provider to use in which country. Different operators mean different pricing structures, also the configuration needs to be handled individually. A challenge, that relates to lots of manual effort and is not ideal for large scale deployments.

3. 1NCE Solution

The 1NCE IoT Flat rate offers global cellular connectivity over all available bearer technologies at a fixed price. The offering comes with no extra costs for setup or roaming. Besides the classic 2G, 3G and 4G variants it already offers NB-IoT and LTE-M in many countries, paving the way for low power applications such as mobile tracking solutions.

 

The simple pricing structure makes the 1NCE offering the ideal perquisite for global scale deployments where connectivity can be directly calculated within the final price of the device or service.

“With the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate we don’t need to worry about complicated setups or the country our devices are being used in. It works globally, that is fantastic.”
