Cellhire and OV Cellhire team up for permanent IoT roaming

The offering is open to Cellhire’s channel partners and client base

Cellhire and OV have signed a strategic partnership, eliminating excessive charges for roaming IoT devices by giving Cellhire’s clients and channel partners access to more than 600 direct roaming agreements globally, in a permanent roaming solution.

“As the demand for IoT devices continues to rise, businesses are increasingly deploying IoT solutions that span multiple countries, allowing them to enhance productivity and streamline operations on a global scale,” says Matt Bennett, Cellhire UK Managing Director.

“However, many businesses persist in using traditional voice and data SIM cards to fuel their IoT connectivity. As these SIM cards were not designed for this purpose, it often results in high roaming charges being incurred that prompt the MNOs to resort to abrupt SIM disconnections.

“Consequently, IoT devices become inoperable causing disruptions to vital services without any prior warning,”

“Our partnership with OV effectively addresses these challenges for our customers and partners.”

IoT connectivity solutions for devices that frequently move between different countries

The multi-network partnership allows Cellhire to deploy tens of thousands of SIM cards remotely. It also marks a major advance for the company allowing it to provide more dependable and cost-effective IoT connectivity solutions for devices that frequently move between different countries.

Bennett comments,

“Cellhire understands the importance for our customers and channel partners of having smooth worldwide IoT connectivity. The partnership with OV gives us a strong network infrastructure and expertise to help us provide a roaming solution that’s future-proofed and fit for international operations.”

Technical and commercial strengths

Paul Donaldson, Chief Revenue Officer at OV, welcomed Cellhire as a partner, stating,

“Cellhire’s innovative solutions as a global telecoms provider make this an excellent partnership, and we are excited to accelerate and simplify IoT connectivity for its customers. The partnership brings together both the technical and commercial strengths of both companies to deliver exceptional IoT connectivity solutions to customers worldwide.”

This partnership further enhances Cellhire’s IoT offering which includes global roaming with access to 40+ MNOs and seamless UK connectivity through its unsteered multi-network solution.

Cellhire also provides convenient UK and global single networks, and reliable services across Europe through its full MVNO on the Orange France network.
