Ultra-low power global cellular connectivity solution for IoT applications

Wednesday, July 14, 2021 - 15:00

Thingstream is the u-blox service delivery platform for IOT, which allows seamless global roaming on 2G, 3G and LTE networks on a single SIM solution. The technology utilises the secure MQTT-SN protocol over USSD and UDP in order to provide ultra-low power cellular connectivity similar to other LPWA networks, which is ideal for IoT and low-power applications. The global MQTT platform allows your device to connect from anywhere at a low and fixed price with no monthly contract or roaming fees by utilising pay-as-you-go plans.

In this webinar, we will explore how to optimize your power-sensitive IoT Solutions using a global cellular connectivity platform.

On the agenda:

- An Introduction to Thingstream, the u‑blox, cloud-based enterprise IoT delivery platform where we will illustrate the advantages of MQTT-SN over USSD and UDP.

- Learn about how to save 10x power consumption using innovative cloud-based location services.

- The presentation will include a live demonstration of these services with an opportunity for questions at the end.
