Cubic launches next-generation global IoT platform
PACE Platform solves key market requirements of IoT device makers, enabling connected application solutions to become global
Cubic Telecom, a leading connectivity technology enabler, today, at Mobile World Congress Americas, announced the launch of its next-generation platform, the Platform for Application and Connectivity Enablement (PACE) offered as a Service. With the platform now available to IoT device manufacturers worldwide, the ability to connect any object anywhere and enable any connected application has become a reality. The first devices hosted on the platform are already being managed in Europe, the USA, and South Korea, with the rollout of locally compliant service to continue across all regions.
This unique platform solution brings industry-first capabilities, including standards-based remote SIM provisioning use and cloud-native advanced connectivity management functions such as zero-touch device registration and connectivity activation across different mobile networks, regions and regulatory conditions.
With the number of cellular IoT connections set to reach more than 3.5 billion by 2023*, manufacturers and providers of connected devices and IoT applications expect these connected services to work anywhere in the world. Cubic Telecom’s next-generation IoT platform has entirely new integration capabilities, making it easy for device manufacturers from an array of different industries to deliver a truly global connectivity solution to end-users through one global SIM and one platform.
The PACE Platform has open interfaces and flexible workflow operations, allowing device makers to choose their preferred mobile network operators, IT systems, service providers and vendors for any region or country, and Cubic’s technology will integrate the end-to-end solution seamlessly. As Cubic’s software platform integrates to multiple OEM IT systems and mobile operator platforms with Cubic’s own dedicated global Core Network, there is no need for multiple separate integrations - Cubic provides a single point of control. The new platform is built for maximum business flexibility, including the ability to dynamically onboard different mobile networks at any point in a product’s lifetime. No other technology companies are currently offering this entire suite of services.
“With our new platform we are putting control back in the hands of our customers, the connected device makers,” stated Barry Napier, Cubic Telecom CEO. “By listening to the needs of the customers we communicate with daily, our expert in-house team of software, data and network engineers have built a world-class IoT platform, enabling us to deliver seamless connectivity anywhere.”
No matter how the device maker chooses to compose its global connected service infrastructure, Cubic Telecom’s PACE Platform can integrate an end-to-end solution efficiently.
“This solution provides advanced connected services through one global partner and platform across all regions, with complete freedom of vendor choice,” continued Napier. “With this added flexibility device makers now have the power to control their service experience end-to-end. We are proud to be the first to market with this advanced intelligent solution.”
Cubic Telecom will showcase this solution at Mobile World Congress Americas this week. It is exhibiting with Enterprise Ireland at stand number W. 912.
