Telit has announced commercial operation of its Telit Next mobile core network, enabling new and enhanced turnkey services that give enterprises, IoT service providers and other users access to over 600 2G, 3G and 4G networks in 190 countries.

The IoT conceived core network is the latest example of Telit’s commitment to providing the entire ecosystem with services that enable seamless, flexible, reliable connectivity.

The core network is a comprehensive service that includes coverage and reliability empowered by a fabric of over 600 2G, 3G and 4G networks – including LPWA – in 190 countries, enabling fast rollout of IoT services in a country, region or globally.

The high-availability service is aligned with mission-critical IoT deployment requirements, from a geo-redundant, global IP network, based on on-premise sites with AWS cloud hybrid backup. This offering ensures always-on network availability for businesses that depend on connectivity for lifesaving, property-saving and asset-saving needs.

There are network-based, optimised independent elements for controlling IoT devices. This simplifies device connectivity management by enabling control across any network type, such as 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, from a single pane of glass.

Enterprise-grade security features include secured network elements, VPN, private APN support, access control for designated IPs, network-based security rules, near-real-time malicious traffic monitoring, and IMEI-Lock to restrict SIM card fraud usage.

Traditional SIM cards come in form factors, such as SIM eUICC, iSIM and Telit SimWise, to provide a broad, deep selection of connectivity options that are unavailable from a single mobile operator.

Multi-IMSI support, combined with Telit’s IoT connectivity management platform, enables optimisation by quality of service, coverage and other requirements. This enables a central distribution hub for devices shipped to any part of the world. Automatic control and optimisation of the radio access network eliminates IMSI activation costs.

Real-time management of each device’s status and other key attributes enables rapid fault resolution without the need to rely on third parties such as mobile operators.

The Telit Optimus AI engine analyses data usage and automatically assigns each SIM to the most cost-effective data plan. This eliminates data overages and bill shock that might otherwise occur for device updates or other device issues.

“Reliable, secure, seamless and cost-effective connectivity is the lifeblood of every commercial, industrial and consumer IoT deployment,” said Tomer Lavie, head of Telit’s connectivity business unit. “The state-of-the-art architecture of the Telit Next network enables new business models for packaging and pricing services for enterprises, IoT service providers and others for quickly rolling out IoT deployments from a few to millions of devices. And once those deployments are launched and scaled, we provide easy-to-use tools to manage and secure devices, so our network delivers the business and operating results that meet customers’ parameters including speed, QoS, support and others.”
