Veniam, the market leader in the intelligent edge for the Internet of Moving Things, and Single Digits, a leading provider of Wi-Fi network experiences, have announced a partnership that allows mobile IoT devices and connected vehicles to easily transfer data over Wi-Fi access points while on the move.
Despite the fact that mobile IoT devices like dashcams, telematics units, and linked cars have a variety of wireless interfaces (Wi-Fi, 4G/5G, and so on), their data transfers are frequently limited to the available cellular links. To save money on data, mobile IoT firms broadcast shorter, lower-quality videos, do fewer over-the-air updates, and, as a result, degrade the quality of their end users' experience.
"By partnering with Single Digits we are making it even simpler and cost effective for Veniam customers to get more and better data. Ultimately, it is about providing all moving IoT devices and their specific applications with the best options for edge connectivity at any location and at any time."
João Barros, CEO and founder of Veniam.
This new partnership enables auto OEMs, telematics providers, and application platforms to expand 4G/5G with access to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots across the United States and internationally by combining Veniam's ability to make the most of all wireless interfaces in mobile IoT devices with Single Digits' expertise in automated, seamless wireless connectivity. As a result, customer devices connect quickly and automatically to available Wi-Fi networks based on global regulations specified in the Cloud, eliminating the need for manual logins and time-consuming business processes.
"We're thrilled to enable on-the-move connectivity between cars and mobile IoT devices over wireless networks through our work with Veniam." said John Haspil, VP of the BSGW Business Unit at Single Digits. "Our roaming hub and powerful suite of services and software for Wi-Fi authorization, authentication, and accounting are essential tools for companies incorporating Wi-Fi Offload into their overall network footprint."
