(London, 8 August 2023): Eseye, a provider of IoT hardware and global connectivity solutions to connect remote devices in the field, has joined the IoT M2M Council (IMC), the world’s largest trade organization for IoT users, to promote it’s “hardware-first” approach to deploying IoT connectivity technology. Eseye contends that building connectivity early in the device design phase accelerates IoT projects and reduces inherent risks. The company provides advanced SIM technology, connectivity managed services, as well as specialist IoT routers and software to optimize connectivity for remote devices. The IMC’s rank-and-file Adopter Membership is comprised of 25,000 enterprise users, product makers/designers, and apps developers that buy IoT solutions.

“We see IoT differently than a lot of other IoT connectivity providers. We start with the device, not the SIM – getting this right is paramount to project success,” says David Langton, Eseye’s Chief Marketing Officer, “We’ve learned this the ‘hard way’ from delivering more than 1,000 customer projects to market. We see the IMC as an ideal platform to get this message out.”

While it doesn’t start with the SIM card, Eseye has been at the forefront of connectivity innovation, including the introduction of an eUICC compliant multi-IMSI eSIM, which allows seamless network switching over the air, as early as 2020. Earlier this year the company introduced their new AnyNet SMARTconnect™ intelligent device connectivity management software solution. More recently, Eseye has introduced an eUICC compliant iSIM, or integrated SIM, which provides subscriber management as a system-on-chip (SoC), eliminating the need for a physical SIM card and providing increased design flexibility.

For its part, the IMC recognizes and validates a greater integration of hardware and connectivity in device design. The trade group will organize its first “Connectivity Pavilion” at the Embedded World exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany in 2024 – the world’s largest show for embedded device design – as well as participate with an IoT track at the show’s prestigious conference. “We look at the convergence of the embedded and IoT ecosystems as a very positive development, in fact, something that is essential if IoT is to scale, so we look forward to exploring this further within the IMC,” says Sam Colley, IMC Chairman and CEO of the connectivity provider Pod Group (a G+D company).
