Transatel Expands 5G IoT Solution


Global cellular service provider Transatel, a subsidiary of NTT group, has its cellular connectivity platform available in nearly 200 destinations. Transatel's SIM and eSIM cards are embedded in more than 3 million devices around the world, such as IoT sensors, PCs, tablets, industrial and agricultural robots, connected vehicles and aircraft.

Looking to roll out the 5G IoT solution in more countries in the coming months, Transatel deployed its worldwide 5G IoT solution for industrial, IT and automotive sectors in Japan on the NTT DOCOMO network, a mobile operator in Japan. Other countries with the 5G IoT solution are France, Belgium, Italy the U.S.

"We are very happy to launch 5G IoT in Japan with DOCOMO. Our partnership demonstrates the strong business synergies within NTT group," said Jacques Bonifay, CEO of Transatel.

The announcement comes after the recent launch of Transatel’s private 5G networks extension solution earlier this year.

The first to benefit from 5G broadband connectivity will be Transatel’s global connectivity solutions for distributed works and field operations. Industrial IoT and M2M use cases are also candidates for 5G, as are edge computing and AI-based applications, all of which collect, deliver, and process growing volumes of data.

The higher bandwidth and lower latency of public and private 5G connectivity addresse these new challenges while offering manufacturers new transformation and innovation opportunities.

“5G is a revolution for the IT industry as it offers significantly superior performances, security and user experience compared to Wi-Fi. Very soon, most PCs and tablets sold on the market will be 5G ready, with cellular connectivity modules embedded,” said Jacques Bonifay, who is supporting leading Always-Connected PC manufacturers in this transformation for several years.

In addition to the enterprises, Transatel's 5G will be available to consumers worldwide through its Ubigi brand, which will offer eSIM cellular connectivity for international travelers and connected cars.  Will take a few more years before second-generation 5G makes the development of autonomous driving a reality.
