Providers of m2m connectivity globally




I am looking for some guidance on how 2 things - providers and potential pricing.


The m2m device is will connect to the network but not frequently and generate small amounts of data, i.e., not more than ~500Kb per month in total (for all the time it remains online). It is however critical that the device be allowed to send data . I am looking for guidance on


1) Which providers can provide this type of seamless connectivity? (Have reached out to Jasper - are they the right guys?)

2) Given the data usage, how much would this cost? (what are the chances of getting a flat rate plan?)


Your insight is much appreciated.

    Hi Ashish,


    there are lots of operators that offer a global M2M service and have the JW platform.


    Best bet is to decide what your home region is- US, Europe, Asia etc and then deal with an operator there for your global service. It usually would make more sense to do the deal in the region where most of your devices will be.


    You can see links to most of the operators on the home page of this site, or get in touch with me and I can help point you in the right direction.

    In my experience, global flat rates end up being a good deal for some countries and very bad deals for other countries, not only because of pricing but also because coverage quality which can be very different from one country to the other.


    I would say that a good approach is to get data service agreements with operators in the countries you are targeting. Might be worthwile taking a look at those listed in this website, and see if you could get from them the global coverage/service your application needs.

    I'm not sure if you have found your wireless carrier, but you may want to look into RACO Wireless.  I work for RACO and we have just posted 300% growth for the year 2011.
