Simon IoT launches management platform for IoT data market

Vast amounts of data are vital for Internet of Things (IoT). At Mobile World Congress Los Angeles, Simon IoT has launched an innovative IoT management platform and pricing model that offers “fairly priced, reliable IoT data” to companies ranging from start-ups to large enterprises.According to the firm, companies typically wait a long time to get quotes and end up overpaying for data.

The SIMON IoT web portal was created to solve pain points faced by end users, resellers and value-added resellers. Its customer-first approach gets rid of complicated pricing models, long contract negotiations and unreliable systems.

Simple to use and easy to understand, the platform mitigates overage risks, offers month-to-month contracts with no minimum commitments, and provides around-the-clock access to IoT experts who are on-hand to answer questions.

The pricing structure is published online, with rate options that give customers the ability to pool their plans, put them on a simple global rate (taxes and fees included) or put certain devices on a high-bandwidth plan..

Simon IoT has agreements in place with carriers and networks to offer a truly global SIM. It lets users customise throttling and usage limits, view data usage in real-time, and analyse how their data is being used.

“With the emergence of NB-IoT and 5G networks, more devices will be reliant on their data connection. Advances in machine learning and data driven insights will give us insights we never could imagine before. That’s why it’s imperative that these innovators have easy access to reliable networks with the support in place to help troubleshoot. We are at the brink of an IoT revolution, and we want to lead the charge,” said Jared Deith, Co-founder of Simon IoT.
