NTT begins global 5G IoT deployment
Written by: Richard Hook | Published:

NTT-owned cellular connectivity service provider Transatel has launched a new global 5G Internet of Things (IoT) solution for the industrial, IT and automotive sectors.

France has been announced as the first step in Transatel's new 5G IoT global deployment strategy available on its global IoT connectivity platform. The rollout of the private 5G networks extension solution in collaboration with French mobile operator SFR will be gradually expanded starting with Belgium, Japan and America “in the coming weeks”.

According to Transatel, its mobile broadband connectivity solution will enable many IoT use cases requiring a large volume of data with 5G, Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence-based applications such as Video Content Analysis (VCA), push-to-talk, as well as autonomous robots and vehicles require ever growing volumes of data.

Transatel has its own telecom infrastructure and access agreements for 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE-M and now 5G, negotiated directly with hundreds of mobile network operators around the world. Its cellular IoT connectivity platform is now used by many international manufacturers such as Airbus, Stellantis and the integrator Worldline. Transatel's SIM and eSIM cards are embedded in more than 3M devices around the world: IoT sensors, PCs and tablets, but also industrial and agricultural robots, connected vehicles and aircraft.


Jacques Bonifay, chief executive of Transatel, said: “5G is a revolution for the IT industry as it offers significantly superior performances, security and user experience compared to WIFI. Very soon, most PCs and tablets sold on the market will be 5G ready, with cellular connectivity modules embedded.

“This flexibility and independence from operators allow Transatel to meet our customers’ coverage and quality of service requirements, of all over the world, regardless of their industry, their device or their business applications.”
