Electric Imp and Twilio have reinvented cellular IoT to dramatically eliminate complexity and finally deliver on the promise of cellular IoT: to make it simple, affordable, and ubiquitous.
Cellular IoT used to mean complexity. Negotiating with carriers, managing SIM subscriptions, dealing with data buckets and overages, integrating connectivity and applications, and securing the solution end-to-end meant companies spending too much time on cellular and not enough time delivering real IoT application value.
But no longer.
Focus on your app, not connectivity
Electric Imp cellular products — such as the new imp006 module — are powered by Twilio Super SIM, a global cellular connectivity platform that connects IoT devices around the world through Tier 1, all via a single SIM. All you need to do is power up your device.
So there are:
- No activation charges.
- No contract.
- No carrier negotiations.
- No need to anticipate monthly data usage to get the best price.
It’s all done for you, by Electric Imp and Twilio Super SIM. You get to focus on one thing only: your application. We take care of the rest.
