Quantela Partners up with T-Mobile to Advance IoT

By Stefania Viscusi

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow in importance. Use cases are evolving, implementations continue to increase, benefits are being realized, and networks and sensors and platforms are becoming smarter. The future if bright for IoT as enterprise and government digitization and smart initiatives ramp up.

To help ensure the right software and solutions are in place to support smart cities, digital infrastructure provider Quantela has partnered with T-Mobile on an alliance agreement to bring together the mobile provider’s existing IoT assets and cellular connectivity with Quantela's smart city software and hardware solutions.

The goal is to introduce a robust IoT offering to compete in the market and help speed up the move to smarter cities.

Quantela and T-Mobile will focus on improving value for cities and utilities. This includes efforts to help in the smart lighting space. Quantela's Narrowband IoT (NBIoT) street light controllers will work through T-Mobile's nationwide network so customers get reduced capital and maintenance costs, while reducing energy consumption and gaining better security and coverage when compared to LED lights without smart controls.

The combined offering will enable cities and utilities to stack existing and future IoT devices onto Quantela's open architecture technology, so they can more quickly digitize city services like traffic management or energy metering.

"This strategic alliance helps us enhance and accelerate penetration of NBIoT streetlight controllers managed through Quantela software, further strengthening our position as a leader in the smart lighting market,” said Amr Salem, Chief Executive Officer, Quantela.

Quantela will also benefit by growing its software footprint via T-Mobile’s customer base. Many are looking for a smart city platform that manage and use available data to drive positive economic, environmental, and societal change in their respective communities. This partnership delivers them that platform.
