Quectel Launches New IoT Connectivity Offering for European Market


Quectel’s mission, on an easier-said-than-done level, is simple: To build a smarter world. In practice, this global IoT solutions provider (as the company itself states) exists to connect devices and people to networks and services, powering digital innovation and helping build the foundational layers of a smarter and more secure, comfortable, prosperous world for everyone. The company’s been at it since 2010, and their values haven’t changed since.

Quectel introduced a new pre-paid connectivity offering; another layer of its mission. This offering will help simplify IoT deployments for European customers that purchase both Quectel modules and connectivity, providing flat-rate roaming IoT SIMs for 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE Cat-M, and NB-IoT at a highly competitive one-time charge. (Plastic SIM cards are included in its pricing.)

These Quectel pre-paid, flat-rate EU28 IoT connectivity packages also include access to its Connectivity Management Platform, the key features of which include secure end-to-end data access, APIs, self-service tools and service diagnostics, user administration, pro-active alerting, trigger management, and reporting capabilities.

Helping make this happen is the Quectel Customer Care team, based in EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa). The team is able to assist across all elements of customers’ deployments, utilizing in-depth expertise to provide robust support, both hardware and firmware reviews, certification services, testing and debugging, etc.

As Richard Hart (Quectel’s Head of Global Connectivity) describes, this offering drives Quectel further into the heart of accelerated and innovative IoT territory.

“With this new pre-paid offering,” Hart explained, “we are meeting the requirements of a growth area in module sales and making it even simpler to connect Quectel’s modules for projects across Europe. We are a customer-centric organization, so with this we are enabling customers to reduce TCO, mitigate technical risks by sourcing from a single supplier, and quicken time-to-market with an overall reduced design complexity.”
