FloLive is collaborating with Qualcomm to enhance global connectivity on the Qualcomm Aware platform.

UK firm FloLive created a hyperlocal global cellular network and is a provider of global connectivity and networking for IoT.

With a history of developing global connectivity standards, Qualcomm is poised to impact the IoT landscape through Qualcomm Aware. By unifying and optimising hardware, software, developer-friendly tools, global connectivity and positioning capabilities at the chipset level, Qualcomm Aware should help add digital intelligence, visibility and control to enterprises while alleviating market fragmentation and deployment complexities in a simpler, security-focused and scalable way.

The addition of FloLive technologies to the Qualcomm Aware ecosystem advances intelligent global connectivity capabilities due to the hyperlocal global cellular network that’s designed to cater to OEMs and global enterprises. It intelligently works with a broader suite of Qualcomm Aware technologies and intelligence to provide virtually seamless local connectivity on a global scale and aims to redefine how IoT devices connect and communicate globally.

Qualcomm Aware (aware.qualcomm.com) targets key ecosystem fragmentation and system design complexity that developers and businesses face and provides a set of differentiated services for managing assets that require critical, accurate and time-sensitive decision making.

Among the key problems enterprises face are development time and costs associated with establishing reliable connectivity. With FloLive, devices can use a global network operator database, with multiple operators in a region, thereby improving connectivity reliability and helping overcome roaming restrictions.

“Qualcomm’s integration of FloLive into the Qualcomm Aware platform to help enhance global connectivity is a testament to our dedication to delivering innovative and impactful global connectivity,” said Curtis Govan, president in the Americas for FloLive. “We are excited to collaborate with Qualcomm to bring our hyperlocal cellular network expertise to the Qualcomm Aware platform, empowering businesses to harness the full potential of IoT with confidence.”

Mohammed Ansari, senior director at Qualcomm, added: “We are excited to welcome FloLive into the Qualcomm Aware ecosystem as a collaboration partner to intelligently enhance global connectivity of IoT devices. A key differentiator of Qualcomm Aware is the ability to embed and optimise connectivity on IoT devices globally, with security as a focus, and intelligently manage the link from device to the cloud in a way that is designed to address the needs of customers across diverse industries.”

FloLive (www.flolive.net) operates a hyperlocal global cellular data network, based on local PoPs in dozens of locations worldwide. With the claimed largest global connectivity library of its kind, it provides centrally managed, localised connectivity for any device, anywhere.
