San Francisco, USA, 31st August 2017 – Pod Group, a global provider of data connectivity solutions for the M2M/IoT market, has today launched a new corporate identity, which includes its specialist divisions Podsystem M2M, a global Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) specializing in M2M/IoT connectivity, and Podsystem Solutions, which provides customized IoT solutions for enterprises and operators. Under the new brand, the company name has been shortened to Pod Group, and the divisions renamed Pod Group, and Pod Solutions, in line with the Group brand.
“Our customers tell us that what they most value about working with Pod Group is our emphasis on personalized support and customer service,” commented Charles Towers-Clark, Managing Director of Pod Group. “We wanted the brand to reflect our approachable, customer-focused culture. Pod is about combining personal service and new innovative technologies. Companies within Pod Group create groundbreaking ways to support the people building the IoT, centred on communications and data.”
The company, which has been in the market since 1999, will be launching the new brand at Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA), where its Pod Group and Pod Solutions divisions will also be showcasing some of the latest innovations in their portfolio of IoT connectivity solutions.
As an agnostic managed service provider, Pod Group integrates multiple IoT technologies into its centralized, intuitive platform FreedoM-2-Manage (F2M) including cellular and LPWAN. An expert in “no single point of failure” solutions for remote and mission critical IoT applications, Pod´s award-winning multi-IMSI technology can also be combined with the eUICC specification on any SIM form factor, not just the MFF2 embedded SIM, allowing customers to future proof their devices without having to upgrade.
All technologies are managed remotely via the F2M platform and mobile application, which includes advanced diagnostics and analytics. A white label platform allows customers to offer a full service, turnkey connectivity solution under their own brand, enabling them to create value added services and generate additional recurring revenue streams. This can also be purchased as a standalone platform.
Pod M2M will be demonstrating its White Label Platform, F2M application and cellular/LPWAN integration on booth N242 at Mobile World Congress Americas (San Francisco 12th-14th September). Also featured on the booth will be a range of devices and platforms from members of the Pod Partner Community (PPC), which provides hardware and software companies in the IoT industry the opportunity to enhance customer experience, increase speed to market, and gain additional revenue through value-added services.
