1NCE, FLASHNET’s connectivity partner, is expanding rapidly and already includes all major countries in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, offering seamless bearer support for a fixed lifetime fee.
Fast and easy to install, with no communication infrastructure investments and no maintenance costs: 1NCE and inteliLIGHT® consolidate their communication partnership for street lighting control with more than 60 additional countries, including US, Canada, Australia, Japan and Mexico.
In mid-2018, 1NCE have created an all-inclusive connectivity pre-paid bundle that is 100% geared for low bandwidth B2B applications, covering some of the most important applications of today’s IoT market, such as smart street lighting control. 1NCE connectivity lets customers deploy their existing IoT solutions faster and more cost-effectively than ever before, with excellent penetration and carrier-grade reliability, while enabling a whole range of completely new IoT use cases, previously considered too expensive, too complex or too unprofitable.
In this context, FLASHNET was the first company to offer a smart street lighting product line with 10 years bundled NB-IoT/LTE-M/GSM connectivity, CMS SaaS and technical support services, since August 2018. Fast and easy to install, with no communication infrastructure investments or recurrent costs, the inteliLIGHT LTE solution provides a real plug & play and easy to deploy approach for both small and large smart lighting projects. Classic street lighting grids smart up, communicate securely in real time, optimizing data transfers to prioritize critical information and encouraging automatic reactions and fast decision-making.
The lighting controllers can switch between available mobile communication technologies (GSM-based 2G, NB-IoT or LTE-M) and operators automatically, optimizing responsiveness and power consumption. Thanks to the plug and play logic of the 1NCE SIM Cards, connectivity is integrated into the controllers, to facilitate fast testing and setting up pilot projects. In addition, the 1NCE multi-bearer technology ensures that the right wireless standards are supported for all connectivity requirements.
From big cities to small villages or highways, inteliLIGHT® smart street lighting control will become even more accessible. Together with 1NCE, we expect to be at the forefront of smart city implementation of mobile IoT based street lighting control worldwide ”, said Lorand Mozes, CEO of Flashnet.
1NCE GmbH is the first fully-fledged IoT network carrier worldwide to offer fast, secure, and reliable connectivity services at low cost based on an IoT flat rate.
