IoT firm KORE has joined Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator ecosystem.

With this relationship, enterprises will be able to take advantage of KORE’s IoT connectivity and other managed services while using Ericsson’s global IoT connectivity management platform, IoT Accelerator.

This should enable global enterprises to expand their IoT business seamlessly in the USA and beyond.

“When two industry-leading companies work together, innovation is the natural result,” said KORE CEO Romil Bahl. “This alliance ensures that enterprises not only have connectivity in every corner of the world, but also a variety and choice. Our joint customers will enjoy a seamless experience built on a foundation of reliable customer and technology support that bolsters their ability to solve IoT deployment complexity.”

The companies have a common mission to simplify global IoT deployments and help enterprises realise new revenue streams, reach more market segments and create a sustainable global businesses. This should reduce IoT deployment complexities by:

  • Enabling visibility and control to monitor and manage globally deployed assets easily.
  • Delivering a high level of reliability and security through a dedicated IoT core network with coverage throughout the USA and other key markets.
  • Offering a seamless technology experience with real-time analytics, plus a common interface and set of APIs.

Enterprises deploying IoT globally will be able to benefit from KORE’s IoT connectivity in the USA while being able to manage their IoT assets easily anywhere on the Ericsson IoT Accelerator platform. Likewise, enterprises using the IoT Accelerator platform in other parts of the world can now deploy IoT assets in the USA while maintaining a single view to manage and monitor all assets deployed globally.

“We are delighted to welcome KORE as the latest service provider partner in our growing IoT ecosystem, extending the reach of our IoT Accelerator platform into the USA,” said Kyle Okamoto, Ericsson IoT general manager. “Enterprises will continue to have access to unparalleled IoT connectivity coverage and the capabilities of Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator, which is already trusted by more than 8500 enterprises around the world to manage over 90 million connected devices.”

KORE and Ericsson also have the broader ambition to continue to grow and expand the mutual service ecosystems between IoT Accelerator and the KORE One IoT enablement platform. They plan to simplify and grow eSIM use and reseller business models further, enabling true IoT service globalisation.

By leveraging the joint ecosystem scale with cloud providers and chipset manufacturers, they should make it easier for enterprises to adopt and scale IoT business globally.
