Telit Enables Applications and US Expansion for Otodata

By Ken Briodagh April 16, 2018

In a recent release, Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), announced a strategic partnership with Otodata, Canada's largest IoT network operator, with more than 300,000 clients. The partnership is designed to enable Otodata’s planned U.S. expansion by leveraging existing MNO infrastructure. It also provides Otodata the ability to provide power efficiency for IoT solutions that require extended battery life with the original battery lasting over a decade.

Otodata designs, develops, manufactures and distributes IoT solutions for cost-sensitive applications such as commercial lighting, telematics, and remote tank level monitoring. It also operates its own proprietary IoT network in Canada and will provide wireless telemetry services throughout most of North America via partnerships with local MNOs.

“Telit's xE910 module family is the ideal long-term choice both for us and our customers,” said Jason M. Gallovich, EVP and Co-Founder, Otodata. “Between its industry-leading module portfolio with multi-MNO and geographical support, it provides the flexibility, features and future-proofing that businesses need to leverage the power of IoT across their entire organization.”

Under the partnership, Otodata said it will use the 910 family of products to scale from LTE Cat 1 to Cat M1 as the foundation for both its long-term product roadmap and expansion strategy. The xE910 family is designed to enable industrial and consumer IoT applications, including asset tracking, alarm systems, telematics devices, retail applications, and smart utility meters.

 “With Telit, Otodata is uniquely positioned to continue knocking down two of the biggest barriers to IoT adoption: power and cost,” said Dennis Kelly, SVP, Americas, Telit. “Otodata is a prime example of the kind of innovation businesses say they're looking for when choosing an IoT partner, and we're thrilled to play a key role in helping Otodata meet that need.”
