A New IoT World - Part 2

By Gregory Gundelfinger on May 6, 2020 9:29:01 AM

In our previous blog post, A New IoT World - Part 1, we discussed the shifting priorities of businesses, consumers, and connectivity services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This sequel will look at emerging infrastructure and efforts to support society as the entire world works to stay productive, efficient, and innovative during a time when contact must remain limited. Streaming services are purposely lowering their bandwidth and quality, factories are abandoning their work to mass produce masks, the entertainment industry is shifting to become entirely digital, and surveillance tools are growing each day. As all industries tread waters that they have never tread before, they embrace a digital and connected world, and all the innovations that come with it. As a result, daily, social, and cultural norms will shift along with business models and investments, and we will experience an entirely new world.

A message from our CEO

By Telna on Apr 13, 2020 9:00:00 AM

In recent weeks, we have entered a global pandemic unlike anything we have ever experienced before. While the current situation has undoubtedly affected all individuals and businesses, this is the time to support one another and pay extra attention to our health and wellbeing. As the CEO of a company that provides cellular IoT platform technology across the globe, many people have reached out to inquire about my outlook on the future of cellular IoT and the impacts of COVID-19 on the industry.

I have a positive perspective. I strongly believe that COVID-19 will be an inflection point for cellular IoT. As employees are forced to stay home, they are realizing the limitations of their systems, which in some cases has caused a total shutdown in accessibility.

I believe that the first order of business when this all ends, will be a deep assessment of productivity during the COVID-19 crisis. A new emphasis will be placed on connectivity, redundancy and as much automation as is economically feasible. The nominal cost of a cellular module in every device will be a small cost to ensure business continuity. 

Although many of our customers are feeling the pressure of the current economic downturn, I want to send a message of encouragement. Hold on and reflect inwards, optimize your systems for scale, as I believe strongly that at the end of this there will be an unprecedented demand for cellular IoT.

During this time, we are working to build new features, more APIs for self-service access and establishing better terms of use with our network partners.

I wish you all well and I am available for any support needed during this difficult time.
