Optus says the agreement is the first of its kind for Optus Wholesale and represents a major step forward in the evolution of its wholesale IoT product suite, “helping organisations unlock the value of networks in today’s connected and global economies”.

Along with the inbound roaming access, Optus Wholesale will also provide operational and business support to Transatel.
