Trilliant, a North Carolina-based provider of smart communications in the IoT, smart energy and smart city space, is partnering with 1NCE to deliver low-cost cellular connectivity designed to make last kilometre connections for low data IoT and smart meter applications.

1NCE is a German tier-one IoT carrier enabling scalable cellular communication services seamlessly across technologies such as 2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT and LTE-M at a single one time tariff in more than 100 countries worldwide with no additional service fees. This makes it easier for companies to calculate connection costs for devices over their entire lifetime.

1NCE specialises in managed connectivity services for IoT applications including asset tracking, tank monitoring, vehicle telematics, waste management and smart metering.

“Trilliant is a leader in smart metering, smart grid and smart cities and a natural partner for 1NCE’s innovative connectivity,” said Alexander Sator founder and CEO of 1NCE. “Trilliant has one of the largest cellular controlled smart meter portfolios globally and partnering with our global platform with full eSIM and multi-bearer management capabilities further enhances Trilliant’s technical and commercial propositions in fast-growing, security-led IIoT environments.”

The technology provides Trilliant with another option for last kilometre mobile communications to support low bandwidth IoT, IIoT and smart grid devices, and enables flexible options for smart metering and additional IIoT devices to accommodate future growth as needs evolve. By using essential network assets, Trilliant can provide long-term stability and security of its network services to users.

“Trilliant works closely with our extensive global partner network to provide unmatched technology integration and develop innovations that meet both client and industry needs,” said Andy White, CEO and chairman of the board for Trilliant. “We are excited to work with 1NCE to expand upon our robust private network, utilising a cost effective, device agnostic platform to create a long-term leverageable asset across the enterprise.”

Trilliant enables actionable intelligence with an open and secure communications platform and approach. Options include cellular, SecureMesh wide area network (WAN), SecureMesh neighbourhood area network (NAN) and SecureReach LPWAN technology. This private, hybrid wireless communications approach is designed to work with virtually any system, in any environment, to provide a scalable, secure source of data.

This announcement comes shortly after news that Trilliant’s information security management system was certified to the ISO 27001 standard for a robust information security strategy to meet the expectations of users systematically.

Trilliant’s purpose-built communications platform lets utilities and cities securely and reliably deploy any application on one network.

1NCE is an IoT network carrier offering connectivity services based on an IoT flat rate. The flat rate includes 500Mbyte data volume, 250 SMS, and free access to the firm’s connectivity management platform via internet and API. To provide the service, 1NCE cooperates with Deutsche Telekom and its roaming partners as well as China Telecom Global.
