What does cellular connectivity bring to the consumer electronics market?
The global market for laptops and tablets has been declining since 2013, shipments reduced to 400 million units per year. The price war is on, dragging margins down with them. The good news, however, is that the market is bound to gain a second wind, thanks to 3G/4G connectivity.
Embedded cellular connectivity, in the form of pre-loaded data bundles, brings value to consumer electronic devices. Thanks to the end-user’s data usage, it generates new revenue streams for OEMs. Thus, it has the power to restore the margins of a mature market.
More importantly, when cellular capabilities are bundled with cloud-based services, they act as the corner-stone of a new services strategy. Hardware and services then become interdependent and generate strong demand for the devices that support them.
By offering cellular connectivity solutions, Transatel is helping a mature market –consumer electronics—join paths with a newborn market full of promise—the IoT. That’s how we’re helping shape the future of this sector.
Why is Transatel in an enviable position to connect objects or machines worldwide?
In the past 16 years, Transatel has grown to become the leading MVNO enabler in Europe. Two years ago, this activity went worldwide for data, with SIM 901.
Transatel harnesses the MVNO experience to offer unparalleled insight in the definition of retail offers, user experience, subscriber and SIM management, fraud prevention, tax and legal compliance around the world.
This expertise can make all the difference when bundling embedded connectivity with cloud-based services. OEMs and car manufacturers are then better supported to increase sales, while gaining control and understanding of their end users and customers.
In short, for the IoT, we don’t simply offer connectivity but our expertise in the best ways to integrate it, to manage it, to derive the greatest added-value in terms of service, and to analyze the data with a view to perfect the service.
Inasmuch, we don’t just offer connectivity, but real Mobile Connectivity Solutions.
