Telefonica IoT business unit has recently incorporated 4G-LTE global SIM connections into its Smart m2m solution, a web-based platform for the connectivity, management and control of IoT communications, developed by the Operator. Telefonnica claims that it has over 1,000 worldwide customers on the Smart m2m platform.

According to Telefonica, IoT customers and solutions are starting to demand LTE-based IoT managed connectivity solutions for two opposite uses cases: a) high bandwidth (e.g. infotainment in cars) and b) low-power low-data usage machine-to-machine communications. This is further supported by newer standards such as the LTE-M which promises machine type communication with reduced bandwidth, lower maximum transmit power and reduced support for downlink transmission. 

Vicente Muñoz, Telefonica’s IoT business unit CEO
Telefonica is at the forefront of the digital revolution ensuring their customers have cutting-edge solutions and management and control of world-leading, reliable and secure IoT communications between machines. 4G-LTE connections will combine perfectly with our leading Smart m2m Solution already commercially available for Telefonica globally.
