Twilio introduced the Twilio Super SIM, built on Twilio's mobile core infrastructure, and an expanded set of tier-one carrier relationships with Singtel, Telefonica and Three Group, which power Twilio Programmable Wireless.

With the Twilio Super SIM, developers can use a single API to deploy Internet of things (IoT) devices globally with the confidence that Twilio can optimize network performance on tier-one carriers based on the location the device is deployed in. The combination of the Wireless Super Network, Twilio's mobile core infrastructure, an Over-The-Air (OTA) platform, and SIM hardware with custom SIM software provides the stack for the Twilio Super SIM. 

Twilio's Mobile Core Infrastructure Twilio's mobile core infrastructure is a complete software implementation of a mobile core, 2G, 3G and LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in the cloud, which means it is inherently global.

By working with Singtel, Telefonica and Three Group, Twilio said it can provide access to wireless connectivity from multiple tier-one operators through a single global interface. This enables Twilio to leverage relationships with hundreds of networks around the world.

Developers expect this kind of experience when deploying software, and Twilio's relationships with tier-one network operators enables it to offer developers the kind of development experience they deserve.

Stacy Crook, Research Director, IoT, IDC
Deployments that leverage cellular connectivity can be especially tricky, as developers often have to deal with multiple carrier contracts and APIs to connect and manage their device fleets globally.
