1 min read

Murata has announced a partnership with the global mobile network provider Truphone, to deliver state-of-the-art IoT connectivity.

Murata will use Truphone’s SIM technology to allow users to connect IoT devices to network providers from the moment they switch it on, with no need for a complicated activation process or a wordy manual.

Murata’s customers will be able to add Truphone connectivity to any hardware purchase through Murata’s website – integrating the two e-commerce portals.

The partnership will provide OEMs of all sizes with IoT connectivity services starting with device and application development. The Truphone network supports 2G, 3G, 4G and CAT-M1/LTE-M worldwide and gives every customer access to its IoT connectivity management platform, ‘Truphone for Things’.

Truphone’s data plans (which provide coverage in multiple countries across a three-year period) simplify the connectivity process.

Murata has built a low-power module, Type 1SE, that includes a Truphone eSIM profile and is integrated with its M2M eSIM remote SIM provisioning service enabling OEMs can activate Truphone connectivity instantly.

Commenting Ralph Steffens, CEO at Truphone said: “Together with Murata, we have developed a groundbreaking solution to make connecting devices as simple and seamless as possible. Both Truphone and Murata share the belief that the full potential of IoT lies in its ease of use. Our plug-and-play model champions exactly that. No lengthy onboarding processes, no complex set-up – it just works.”
