Brazilian Operator Selects Telit’s IoT Platform for Mission-Critical Industries
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 | Comments

Brazilian mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Porto Seguro Conecta began offering Telit's simWISE solution to its internet of things (IoT) customers across Brazil in verticals including agrobusiness, fleet management and utilities.

With the product, customers now can create lower cost IoT devices and provision and maintain them remotely without costly truck rolls. Telit simWISE replaces the traditional subscriber identity module (SIM) card and tray with a module-embedded SIM technology. This architecture reduces the cost of manufacturing and owning connected products — major benefits in the highly cost-sensitive IoT market, a Telit statement said.

“Telit's simWISE solution gives fleet owners, agricultural companies and other businesses unprecedented flexibility and savings,” said Jeferson Baggio, Porto Seguro Conecta head of sales. “We're excited to offer this industry-first technology, which will revolutionize the Brazilian IoT market by slashing the hardware and operational costs that make traditional SIM designs a major barrier to deployment.”

Launched in August 2013, Porto Seguro Conecta is the first MVNO to operate in Brazil.
