Stockholm – Tele2 AB, (Tele2), (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2) today announced the launch of a new global IoT platform – EnCore. EnCore is delivered as-a-Service, allowing customers to roll out large global deployments with high quality of service while using large amounts of data in a flexible, cost efficient, and unified way.

For enterprises that have, or are looking to deploy, devices with connectivity on a larger scale, the current solutions on the market have not been working in an optimal way. They are often faced with proprietary solutions, having to administrate multiple operators and platforms for different regions, including local operators for certain countries with regulatory requirements. They’ve also faced difficulties in finding cost-efficient solutions for mid- and high data use-cases on a global level.

We have developed EnCore to simplify the growing complexity created by digitalization and the shift towards as-a-Service solutions. It  gives enterprises an efficient way of deploying and operating their devices; it is a solution to latency problems, regulatory compliance issues and the high data cost structure that many customers face today.

EnCore is composed of a cloud-based IoT Core network that is deployed as-a-service in the regions and countries required. It consists of a platform to manage and operate an enterprise’s total IoT deployment. While EnCore is based on the Nokia WING platform, it also acts as a platform for mobile network operators to cooperate in order to offer enterprises all the benefits of a local deployment in a global setup – Global Connectivity Orchestration.

“As the orchestrator of a smarter world, we aim to launch services that make IoT adoption easier, more efficient, and that will improve customers daily business,” says Melissa Jenkins, CTO at Tele2 IoT. “We identified the need for EnCore several  years ago and are very proud of launching it today.”

“While our other offerings are very suitable for both smaller and larger roll-outs, this is an infrastructure service, an IoT as-a-service offering, which will benefit companies with large global deployments, or with high data usage and specific quality of service requirements. Our strategy to develop open, enduring, and innovative products continues, and EnCore is really a new paradigm in the world of IoT.”
