BICS announced the launch of a pioneering solution for any IoT application built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), to automatically on-board devices wherever they are in the world.
As a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), BICS can now combine the worldwide multi-network cellular coverage of its SIM for Things solution with CESANTA’s VCON cellular connectivity module, allowing AWS customers to expand their geographic IoT footprint to over 200 countries.
Powered by BICS’ global network, the service is designed to enable IoT devices using ‘SIM for Things’ to be seamlessly provisioned and available to AWS IoT, and for managers of diverse IoT device fleets to utilise AWS's powerful suite of services. By leveraging SIM for Things’ multi-network support and roaming technology, combined with BICS’ 600+ operator partnerships, customers will be able to provision and remotely manage IoT devices throughout the world. The combination of SIM for Things and VCON provides a secure, ready-to-go AWS connectivity and provisioning solution, enabling data reporting, remote device control, and device software updates that optimise brand protection.
BICS and CESANTA have simplified the process for companies seeking to integrate cellular reach with AWS, accelerating the time-to-market of IoT propositions. The off-the-shelf connectivity solution significantly reduces engineering efforts, cuts the time required to develop new products, and minimises operating costs, due to the power and capabilities of AWS IoT.
