Rogers Communications Inc., together with Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), say they are making it easier for Canadian businesses to take their Internet of Things (IoT) offerings worldwide. Announced this week, Rogers said the new SIM-based offering will simplify how Canadian businesses roll out and manage their IoT solutions on a global scale.

“Canadian businesses can now use a single SIM, which automatically connects IoT devices to the local provider networks,” Rogers said. “This eliminates the need to substitute local SIMs in each country, while reducing roaming costs and go-to-market timelines.”

It added that the service is  integrated with Rogers IoT platform, so businesses have insight into all of their connected devices and can manage subscriptions on all of their devices remotely.

“Canadian businesses are increasingly looking to deliver Internet of Things solutions globally, and to do so they require technology that allows them to rapidly scale their solutions quickly and cost effectively,” said Charlie Wade, senior vice president, products and solutions at Rogers.

Rogers said Canadian businesses  additionally benefit from global carrier relationships that Rogers has established in the M2M World Alliance. The Alliance includes nine international members and reaches into six continents covering seventy countries.
