CLX Communications Launch Voice for IoT

By Ken Briodagh December 06, 2017

CLX Communications, cloud-based communications provider, has announced that, following successful trials, the CLX IoT connectivity service now supports Voice communication capabilities.

Voice can play a key role in many IoT use cases, including devices that require low bandwidth communication, such as telemetry and health monitoring, but also require the same SIM card-based communication channel that could, for example, support end-user emergency calls to a support helpdesk.

Security is integral to the IoT service from CLX. By default, the CLX IoT service will operate as a private network, to ensure that calls cannot be intercepted or exposed to fraudulent behaviour from unidentified sources. In addition, the IoT Voice service comes with the same real-time control and consumption monitoring functionality as existing Data and SMS services, as well as detailed billing and full technical support.

Robert Gerstmann, managing director, CLX, said, “IoT offerings have traditionally included transmitting Data and SMS messages, the Voice element allows us to provide additional value to our IoT clients coupled with efficiency gains of service consolidation into one communications service provider. We have several clients testing the new feature and we look forward to supporting them through their trials and commercial deployments.”
