Ericsson has announced it agreed with KORE to enter into the Ericsson IoT Accelerator ecosystem.
KORE is a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions and worldwide IoT Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS).
Through the partnership, Ericsson said businesses would be able to utilise the company’s IoT Accelerator, a world-class global platform for managing IoT connectivity, along with KORE’s IoT connectivity solutions and other managed services. Due to this, multinational corporations can easily grow their IoT businesses both within and outside of the United States.
“When two industry-leading companies work together, innovation is the natural result. This alliance ensures that enterprises not only have connectivity in every corner of the world, but also a variety and choice,” KORE President and CEO Romil Bahl said.
According to Bahl, Ericsson and KORE’s joint customers will benefit from a seamless experience built on a solid foundation of customer and technology support that strengthens their capacity to address the complexity of IoT deployment.
KORE and Ericsson are working together to simplify international IoT deployments so businesses can realise new revenue streams, tap into new markets, and build long-lasting global businesses. By enabling visibility and control to monitor and manage globally deployed assets conveniently, delivering a high level of reliability and security through a dedicated IoT core network with coverage throughout the U.S. and other key markets, and providing a unified technology experience through real-time analytics, as well as a common interface and set of APIs, the complexity of IoT deployment will be lessened.
With the Ericsson IoT Accelerator platform, businesses globally deploying IoT will be able to take advantage of KORE’s IoT connectivity solution in the United States while efficiently managing their IoT assets from any location. Meanwhile, businesses that already use the IoT Accelerator platform can now deploy IoT assets in the United States while still having a single view to manage and track all globally deployed assets.
“We are delighted to welcome KORE as the latest service provider partner in our growing IoT ecosystem, extending the reach of our IoT Accelerator platform into the United States,” Ericsson IoT General Manager Kyle Okamoto said. “Enterprises will continue to have access to unparalleled IoT connectivity coverage and the capabilities of Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator, which is already trusted by more than 8,500 enterprises around the world to manage over 90 million connected devices.”
