The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionised the way industries operate and interact with the world. The ability to connect devices, gather data, and make informed decisions has opened new avenues for businesses to improve efficiency and enhance customer experiences. A crucial aspect of IoT is reliable and secure connectivity, and this is where the collaboration between 1oT and Teltonika Networks plays a significant role. By combining the advanced capabilities of the Teltonika Networks' hardware and the flexibility of 1oT's eSIM technology, the partnership provides seamless and robust IoT connectivity solutions.

Overview of Teltonika Networks

Teltonika Networks' commitment to innovation and quality has earned them a reputation for providing cutting-edge solutions that empower IoT deployments.

"At Teltonika Networks, we believe that maintaining strong connections is vital for growth. As one of the key providers of managed IoT SIM cards and data plans in the Baltic countries, 1oT is a partner we are excited and confident about. We look forward to seeing what heights this strong and long-standing relationship takes us both.” – Aivaras Juodvalkis, Business Development Manager at Teltonika Networks

Combining Teltonika Networks with 1oT: 
RUT956 + 1oT eSIM

LTE Cat 4 Connectivity: The RUT956 supports LTE Cat 4 technology, offering faster data transfer rates, lower latency, and improved network performance. This enables smooth communication between IoT devices and the cloud, facilitating real-time data transmission.

Dual SIM and eSIM Support: The router comes with dual SIM slots and embedded SIM technology support. Furthermore, eUICC technology support provides a game-changing advantage by allowing remote provisioning and management of SIM profiles over the air. This feature makes it significantly easier to deploy and manage large-scale IoT projects across different regions without the need to physically replace SIM cards.

Robust Security Features: Security is paramount in IoT deployments, and the RUT956 doesn't disappoint. It offers advanced security mechanisms like VPN, firewall, and various encryption protocols to protect data integrity and thwart potential cyber threats.

Rugged Design: The RUT956 is built to withstand harsh environmental conditions, making it suitable for deployment in industrial settings and remote locations.

The Game-Changer: eSIM Technology

Traditional SIM cards have served us well, but they do present some limitations, especially for IoT deployments. The integration of eSIM technology brings significant advantages that address these limitations and simplify IoT connectivity.

Remote Management: As mentioned earlier, eSIMs can be remotely provisioned and managed, making it possible to update or change carrier profiles over the air. This reduces operational complexities, as there is no need for manual SIM card replacements, especially in hard-to-reach locations.

Enhanced Flexibility: eSIM technology enables devices to be provisioned with multiple profiles, allowing them to switch between carriers and networks based on coverage and pricing, ensuring optimal connectivity at all times.

Improved Security: 1oT eSIM follows GSMA's specifications on both the physical card and the back-end brain of the eSIM - Remote SIM Provisioning System. Furthermore, the 1oT Terminal Connectivity Management Platform has multiple security-related features implemented, such as:

  • 2-factor-authentication
  • IP Whitelisting
  • IMEI lock for stopping unauthorised device pairing
  • Data and SMS limits
  • User permissions and full audit log

"I am thrilled to announce the extended partnership with Teltonika Networks - an industry leader in IoT networking equipment. The collaboration is aimed towards SMEs and enterprises struggling with connectivity lock-in and searching for flexibility and insurance with their long-time IoT deployments. 1oT's telecom-independent eSIM combined with Teltonika Networks' hardware is the perfect setup for convenient migration to future-proofed connectivity." – Taavi Jõgeva, 1oT's Sales Director

Teltonika Networks' Remote Management System (RMS)

Teltonika Networks' Remote Management System (RMS) is an all-in-one, user-friendly IoT platform providing an easy way to stay on top of your connected solution. It enables remote access and management of all connected Teltonika Networks and third-party devices.

Teltonika Networks' RMS has various services, allowing extensive control and advanced analytics for compatible devices.

  • RMS MANAGEMENT gives you full control over your Teltonika Networks routers and gateways, ensuring their security and availability.
  • RMS CONNECT is a unified access system that lets you remotely reach and control smart devices, such as industrial PCs, CCTV cameras, and PoS systems, using RMS alongside compatible routers or gateways with supported protocols.
  • RMS VPN is a quick, simple way to set up a VPN for your entire infrastructure. It can act as a secure M2M network for interconnecting remote systems without a dedicated server.

RMS's API allows your IoT platform to interact directly with the RMS and get the necessary data and functionality. The main RMS API is a RESTful interface, providing programmatic access to much of the data and actions in the system. This makes the RMS easy to communicate with from various environments, from command-line utilities to the browser URL bar. 1oT Terminal's API enables pulling SIM-related information to 3rd party platforms such as Teltonika RMS.

In general, there are several ways to use the 1oT and RMS API combination.

  • RMS API can be used to detect online devices and push multi-config templates, which are selected by the user's internal system and installation use case.
  • RMS API can be used to integrate Connect Remote Desktop capabilities. With API, you can integrate Remote Desktop access into your system and utilise access over a web browser without installing additional software.

The Synergy of Collaboration

The collaboration between 1oT and Teltonika Networks leverages the strengths of both companies to provide comprehensive and reliable IoT connectivity solutions. Customers can access a powerful end-to-end solution that simplifies IoT deployment and management by combining 1oT's globally managed eSIM technology with Teltonika Networks’ hardware and eSIM technology support.

"At Superhands, we have developed IoT solutions that need to operate in harsh environments (e.g., mining or general remote outdoor areas). Proper management of IoT connectivity by combining SIM and device management has resulted in a drastic increase in reliability and reduction of maintenance related costs." – Mihkel Tedremaa, Co-founder at Superhands - IoT Solutions

As IoT continues to evolve and applications become more demanding on the network's side, reliable and seamless connectivity remains the backbone of successful IoT deployments. 1oT and Teltonika Networks' collaboration gives businesses the tools to connect their IoT devices efficiently, securely, and cost-effectively. This partnership represents a significant step forward in IoT connectivity, empowering businesses to embrace the full potential of IoT and drive innovation in their domains.
