1NCE Welcomes Digital Republic for Flat Fee IoT Connectivity

By Chrissie Cluney April 26, 2019

1NCE is the provider of IoT Device Lifetime Flatrate. This is powered by Deutsche Telekom in a new partnership with Digital Republic, which is a Zurich-based specialist for the IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.

“Customers who receive an offer for IoT connectivity are often overwhelmed by the complexity and the many conditions involved,” said Marco Arnold, co-founder and managing director, Digital Republic. “Very often they have to make commitments over several years in terms of quantity or minimum turnover – even if the deployment of new technologies over a longer time horizon is uncertain. With the 1NCE offer everything becomes much easier.”

The two companies will assist to simplify the IoT connectivity challenges and complexities that customers face. Digital Republic’s main focus is on supporting customers to sustainably. This company also concentrates on successfully monetizing their IoT applications through service-based and recurring business models. 1NCE’s unique lifetime flat rate fee proposition of up to 500MB for ten years for a one-time fee is approximately $11.30 (USD). This will address the complexity and ensure predictable connectivity costs.

“Our offering is a total disruption of the existing IoT connectivity model. We’re IoT natives, our service is prepaid and offers the highest quality connectivity at the lowest price. Added to these attributes, we have state of the art management features through our in-house connectivity management platform which handles automated customer onboarding, the flat rate, lifetime contract and our multi-bearer SIM card that supports NB-IoT, LTE-M, 2G and 3G with full IoT roaming from Deutsche Telekom,” said Alexander Bufalino, chief sales officer, 1NCE.

Digital Republic provides assistance to their customers to implement IoT-based and recurring business models. With its IoT Business Suite, the company enables implementation of service-based business models such as Product-as-a-Service, Feature-as-a-Service and Product-as-a-Point-of-Sales. It implements customer interactions, onboarding processes, provisioning, billing, rating and the distribution of revenues in complex business models.

“We focus in and above the application layer where end customer interaction, rating and billing are concerned. All too often we find that customers also have a need in other areas, especially for connectivity. The partnership with 1NCE enables us to generate comprehensive added value for our customers. With 1NCE's offer, our customers' IoT solutions become more competitive. The end customers naturally benefit from the better conditions and service 1NCE offers,” said Ali Soy, co-founder and managing director, Digital Republic.
