Thu, 4th May 2023

Eseye, a pioneer of cellular IoT connectivity solutions, has announced it has entered into an agreement with Orange Wholesale France to enhance its global IoT connectivity solution offering. It aims to do this with additional localisation capabilities which will enable enterprises to avoid permanent roaming challenges.

Orange is a global telecommunications operator and has 242 million mobile customers in 26 countries. Its Business Unit Orange Wholesale France is a leader in wholesale global IoT connectivity.

Thanks to its international footprint, giving access to networks in terms of speed and coverage, and a wide range of connectivity options - including 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA and upcoming new radio technologies - Orange Wholesale France it is a strong partner for Eseye, the company states.

Eseye states, Orange Wholesale France, with its extensive roaming agreements specifically for IoT use cases across many countries and regions, provides Eseye with an excellent building block in its mission to solve global IoT challenges for enterprises.

Not only does it increase Eseye’s footprint, but it also augments the deeper technical localisation agreements that Eseye already has in place in various regions, where there are restrictions on permanent roaming agreements in order to localise devices.

In addition, Eseye brings device, connectivity, and technical expertise to IoT projects, working closely with clients to build a custom strategy that delivers success.

With a vision to deliver every IoT project right first time from design to deployment it has been first to market on various occasions, solving industry issues and providing IoT connectivity solutions. In particular, Eseye has successfully solved permanent roaming issues for enterprises.

Adam Hayes, Chief Operating Officer, Eseye comments, “Sponsored roaming is a highly effective way of delivering IoT services but unfortunately it doesn’t solve all use cases. Adding the Orange Wholesale offering with Eseye’s unique technical localisation capabilities means we are able to offer wide-ranging access to local networks and roaming partners.

"Our vision is to provide the most comprehensive global IoT connectivity solutions to the market. We pioneered the localisation trend, solving IoT problems in difficult jurisdictions such as North America and Brazil.

"As a result, we know how much engineering investment and work is involved in achieving full technical localisation and we are dedicated to ensuring we meet our customers’ evolving IoT deployment needs.”

Yannick Decaux, SVP Mobile Wholesale and Interconnection, Orange Wholesale France adds, “Eseye is an experienced, deeply technical, IoT connectivity solution provider and therefore the perfect partner for us to engage with via our global connectivity agreement.

"We have been impressed by the organisation’s commitment to solving some of the most challenging IoT problems and the company’s desire to make global IoT connectivity available to all enterprises; a vision that we also uphold. I am looking forward to working closely with the team and enabling Eseye to leverage our IoT Roaming solution.”
