By Ken Briodagh August 30, 2017

According to a recent announcement, Orange Business Services is supporting Yepzon Group’s global ambition with a new three-year agreement for worldwide IoT connectivity and SIM cards for 100,000 locator devices. Yepzon Group develops wearable technologies and smart-clothing applications. It has quickly evolved from a bright idea to a successful international business in just three years and is now heading for the global market.

Yepzon Group’s wearable locator device uses Bluetooth, GPS and mobile network technologies to provide accurate location information through a mobile application for iOS, Android and Windows phones. The Yepzon locator is targeted at a range of different applications that boost safety and peace of mind. They include monitoring elderly relatives, locating family pets or tracking the location of various types of equipment.

The Orange IoT service provides tangible business benefits for Yepzon. They include: seamless SIM card ordering, simple activation and tracking through a dedicated portal; one price per SIM card regardless of location; and scalable connectivity reaching 220 countries and territories.

“A reliable IoT communications infrastructure, global presence and an attractive business model are key to our global expansion and further success,” says Otto Linna, CEO, Yepzon Enterprises. “Orange is our partner of choice to support our growing business because of the company’s international footprint and IoT and analytics expertise.”

“Yepzon’s intention to increase safety for millions and make the technology available for the benefit of families and loved ones around the world, as well as its ambitious growth plans, clearly call for a reliable and trustworthy global partner,” says Helmut Reisinger, executive vice president, International, Orange Business Services. “We are very happy to have been selected as their provider of choice and help enable their global ambition.”

The Orange Business Services IoT connectivity service is part of Datavenue, a modular IoT and Analytics solution. To enable advanced analysis and decision-making, the Datavenue solution encompasses the selection of actual objects, their reliable and secure connection, and management of data. A global team of more than 700 Orange data scientists and engineers design and develop these innovative services. Orange already supports over 12 million B2B objects across a variety of sectors, including Automotive and Transport, Smart Cities, Industry and Manufacturing and Daily Life (smart home, healthcare and wearables). Datavenue reaffirms the Orange commitment to supporting businesses with their digital transformation. The Yepzon wearable trackers are also sold by Orange Luxembourg.
