More Optimized Connectivity Leads to Improved ROI, Experts Say

By Ken Briodagh February 22, 2017

IoT is still proving its case to many in the industrial sectors and finding ways to prove that the ROI of implementation is a critical next-step challenge. IoT is also a key solution to that problem. In tomorrow’s scheduled IoT Evolution webinar, set for February 23 at 11:00 a.m. ET/ 8:00 a.m. PT, speakers from IoT Evolution, Nube and Sierra Wireless will address how connectivity and the IoT can accomplish proof-of-concept work while doing the job of making processes better.

In the rapidly-evolving IoT market, choosing the right IoT SIM is critical for the success of an IoT initiative. Listeners will learn why customers are avoiding traditional roaming SIMs and networks and moving toward IoT-specific SIMs designed to meet the needs of connected products and services. New eUICC/eSims are a viable option now, and these complementary technologies will perhaps provide the best option for future IoT initiatives.

During this webinar, speakers will address:

  • The rapidly evolving IoT landscape and emerging SIM technologies
  • Ensuring your IoT devices always have resilient, optimized, global connectivity
  • Top questions to ask when selecting the right IoT SIM and connectivity provider
  • Customer use cases for IoT SMART SIM and eUICC/eSims
  • How to future-proof your connected business with eUICC/ eSIMS to enable growth
  • Key criteria when selecting an IoT connectivity platform to manage your IoT deployment
