Embelin Partners With Orange Business Services to Offer IoT Connectivity in Europe

Equipment manufacturer and software developer Embelin has signed a contract with Orange Business Services to provide global connectivity for its Internet of Things products. The deal will enable Embelin to expand in Europe and subsequently on a global scale. It will also simplify the provisioning process for IoT connectivity and improve the user experience the companies report.

Headquartered in Finland, Embelin specializes in the design of embedded systems, IT and data management, supporting companies' digitalization. Its flagship product is REMUC, a remote control and monitoring system that can be installed in any smart target. In the car industry, for example, it allows users to track vehicle location and control in-vehicle heaters (essential for winter driving) remotely with mobile devices. REMUC is available for businesses and consumers, and comprises a controller installed in a vehicle, as well as cloud processing and a mobile application for smartphones.

Orange Business Services is providing Embelin with global IoT connectivity, SIM cards, a management portal, and service and remote management. Embelin can provision IoT connections automatically with the Orange IoT connectivity service portal and APIs. This simplifies deployment, invoicing, cuts costs for customers and reduces the need for extensive support, according to the companies.

"We are using Orange SIM cards in all our current and upcoming products, and their IoT connectivity will help us expand internationally," said Kai Simula, Embelin's CEO, in a prepared statement. "In addition, the automated connectivity activation Orange provides for our market-leading REMUC mobile technology creates an outstanding user experience, which will allows us to gain market share with our product."

"Embelin has a clear vision for producing efficient solutions that meet customers' requirements, and global IoT connectivity and reach are essential," said Helmut Reisinger, Orange Business Services' international executive VP, in the prepared statement. "Embelin can enjoy tangible business benefits from having a single global provider for its IoT communication infrastructure, such as seamless SIM card ordering, activation and tracking through a dedicated portal. Together this provides Embelin's customers with an easy-to-use solution and outcome that delivers confidence and peace of mind."

The Orange Business Services IoT connectivity service is part of Datavenue, a modular IoT and analytics solution. To enable analysis and decision-making, the Datavenue solution encompasses the selection of relevant data and objects, their reliable and secure connection, and their management in the customer information system environment.
