Singtel, Ericsson join hands in creating an integrated IoT solution

It seeks to make apps interoperable across devices.

Singtel and Ericsson have unveiled the Assured+ Connected Device Solution or Assured+, an integrated Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution that seeks to address the fragmentation and lack of collaboration in the current IoT market, at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

Assured+ seeks to support eldercare, connected cars, and other emerging IoT applications to provide universal connected life management consumers. While most devices such as wearables, connected cars, and smart home sensors are currently managed through closed and place-centric applications, Assured+ will give consumers full control for all their connected personal, automotive, and devices whether they’re outdoors or at home.

“By integrating standalone applications into one solution, Assured+ will bring convenience to our customers and also pave the way for more IoT solutions to be launched in a seamless manner,” said Yuen Kuan Moon, chief executive officer for Consumer Singapore of Singtel.

Assured+ will connect devices across existing 3G/4G networks, NB-IoT and LTE Cat-M, helping accelerate their adoption while providing fast time-to-market services. It will also provide an open and simplified experience for developers to add new support for devices and applications.

The Ericsson Mobility Report projects that there will be 18 billion IoT related devices by 2022, highlighting increased demand for IoT management solutions.

Trials for Singtel mobile customers are set to begin later in the year.
