CKH Innovations Opportunities Development (CKH IOD), a unit of CK Hutchison’s telecom division, has joined forces with Eseye, a leader in ubiquitous global IoT connectivity, to expand Eseye’s global IoT connectivity coverage and meet the rising demand for connected devices.
Three Ireland, part of the CK Hutchison 3 Group, will provide global connectivity to Eseye’s customer base across the 3 Group’s IoT global roaming footprint.
CKH IOD and Eseye will work to develop next-generation IoT solutions, enabling customers to seamlessly connect to hyperscale cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), and allow “out of the box” connectivity that is fully integrated. This will provide significant benefits such as simplified IoT adoption, security certification, real-time data analytics and single point of billing and support.
This collaboration addresses a growing need among global enterprises for simpler, more streamlined, more cost-effective connectivity and management for every IoT device, regardless of the device’s geographic location. Customers who are deploying IoT devices globally can now benefit from the expertise and capabilities of Eseye and CKH IOD, and the global roaming footprint of the 3 Group.
“Our work with Eseye is good news for customers, who want to derive the benefits of IoT and understand that a successful deployment requires simplicity, scale, and security,” said Joe Parker, CEO, CKH IOD. “The data and insights that can flow from an IoT solution provide the potential for significant competitive advantage, especially for organizations that need to get closer to customers as part of digital transformation initiatives. We’re delighted to bring the reach and reliability of CKH IOD and the 3 Group to our collaboration with Eseye as we work together to develop the next generation of highly scalable IoT solutions.”
Nick Earle, CEO, Eseye said: “This partnership with CKH IOD demonstrates the growing demand for operators to provide highly resilient IoT connectivity on a global scale, with a single point of contact for billing and support and automatic provisioning of data into hyperscale cloud. The partnership enables customers to benefit from our unique connectivity management platform, delivering reduced device lifecycle costs and enhanced connectivity resilience, backed by major Mobile Network Operators such as the 3 Group. I am delighted that CKH IOD has recognized Eseye as a strategic, specialist global IoT connectivity partner and we look forward to working together to deliver global projects in the future.”
“There is a growing need for global enterprises to benefit from the IoT expertise and capability that is delivered through this partnership,” said Eoin MacManus, Chief Business Officer, Three Ireland. “Together Eseye, CKH IOD and Three Ireland have the ability to solve any complex deployment issue and enable any enterprise, no matter their location, to reap the benefits of IoT.”
