With Transatel, NTT Rolls out New 5G IoT Service in the USA to Accelerate Connected Industries Transformation

Transatel, NTT | May 16, 2022

Transatel - subsidiary of NTT since 2019 - announces the worldwide deployment of a new 5G IoT solution for the industrial, IT and automotive sectors. After France, Belgium and Japan, Transatel’s global 5G IoT services is now available in the USA and will be extended to the rest of the world in the coming months. The announcement follows the recent launch of NTT’s breakthrough Private 5G Network as-a-service platform1.

Starting May 12, NTT will be offering both private and public 5G connectivity in the USA. This mobile broadband continuity of service will prove to be critical for many industries, as IIoT applications process an ever-growing volume of data. Public 5G service will be available through Transatel’s global cellular IoT connectivity platform.

“The Transatel SIM is already an integral part of the NTT Ltd enterprise focused Private 5G solution, giving NTT P5G customers the benefit of having a single SIM serving both their private network needs while also enabling global roaming for enterprises requiring this feature beyond factories and campuses.” said Shahid Ahmed, NTT Ltd. EVP New Ventures and Innovation. The announcement of Transatel’s 5G offer further enhances the NTT P5G offering by allowing continuous 5G coverage between private and public networks. In the past only 4G public coverage was available, thereby limiting the potential business benefit and use case development. "We are excited to launch 5G IoT in the USA and abroad. NTT’s cellular networks hybridation capabilities demonstrates the strong synergies within the group."

Jacques Bonifay, CEO of Transatel, NTT’s global MVNO.

Connected industry and hybrid workplace applications on the front line for 5G

Field operations and distributed workforce will be the first to benefit from 5G broadband connectivity. SIM and eSIM compatible PCs, tablets and enterprise routers will now support data-intensive applications with unprecedented reliability and fluidity. “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.” predicts Jacques Bonifay, who has been supporting leading Always-Connected PC manufacturers in this transformation for several years.

Industrial IoT and M2M use cases are also good candidates for 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. The higher bandwidth and lower latency of public and private 5G connectivity addresses these new challenges while offering manufacturers new transformation and innovation opportunities.

Syniverse Recognized as Leading 5G Roaming Vendor in Latest Kaleido Intelligence Study

Businesswire | May 29, 2023

Syniverse, "the world's most connected company,"® has been recognized by consulting and market research firm Kaleido Intelligence as one of the best vendors to enable 5G roaming for operators in its "5G Roaming: Consumer and IoT Strategies 2023" report. The report analyzes the 5G roaming landscape, assessing key trends, developments, and requirements. It also offers feedback from leading operator groups about 5G opportunities and revenue drivers, technical specifications for mobile network operators (MNOs), and an outlook on the market. "Being named as one of Kaleido Intelligence's top vendors for 5G roaming solutions once again demonstrates Syniverse's unparalleled track record of successfully guiding operators through network transformations, which we have done for more than 30 years," remarked Andrew Davies, Chief Executive Officer, Syniverse. "As Kaleido's report details, more than 85% of participating MNOs plan to launch 5G standalone roaming by the end of 2025. We will continue providing best-in-class service as they build out their next-generation networks as well as facilitating uninterrupted service for their subscribers, regardless of where they may travel." Kaleido Intelligence estimates that consumer mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices will exceed 5,000 petabytes of 5G data roaming traffic globally by 2028, when approximately 100 million machine-to-machine (M2M) connections will roam over 5G networks. That data represents 78% average annual growth, and it will account for more than 70% of worldwide data roaming traffic and lead to nearly $100 billion in roaming revenues for mobile operators over the next five years. Syniverse was one of six vendors spotlighted in the report, which singled out the company's 5G Signaling Controller as a leading 5G technology evolution. 5G Signaling Controller is an HTTP2-based solution designed specifically to efficiently enable roaming for 5G standalone networks and deliver 5G experiences and market opportunities.
