NetComm partners with Telefónica on global IoT supply deal

By

Australian wireless broadband equipment provider NetComm Wireless has secured an IoT Device Supply Agreement with Spain-based global telco Telefónica which it says extends its IoT reach to more than 2500 enterprises worldwide.

Under the agreement, the ASX-listed NetComm will supply a range of 3G/4G M2M/IoT devices including the 4G M2M Router (NTC-140); 3G M2M Router Series (NTC-6200) and its 3G Serial Modem (NTC-3000).  

NetComm general manager M2M Philip Micallef says Telefonica is driving digital transformation on a global scale with a focus on IoT innovation as the need for smart remote communication between business assets and machines becomes ever more critical for enterprises globally.

According to Micallef, both Telefonica and NetComm Wireless have received notable recognition for IoT innovation with NetComm having received the Australian communications industry's highest accolade for IoT innovation, the IoT Innovator ACOMMS Award.

He also noted that Telefonica appeared for the third year running in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's report "Magic Quadrant for Managed Machine-to-Machine Services, Worldwide" published in October 2016.

In February this year NBN Co, the company building Australia's national broadband network, announced it had placed a $28 million order with NetComm for the supply of distribution point units.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?
