Cellular IoT

Future-proof connectivity with Cellular

Why Cellular?

Connecting more easily

Intransparent offers, complex integrations into your network, cumbersome setup procedures ... Perhaps you have already encountered a number of these problems while planning to connect your products to the Internet of Things.

With Celullar IoT, these problems belong to the past.
Connect your product more seamlessly than ever before: via mobile connectivity. Together with our parent company Vodafone, we have created attractive offers that connect your product to the Internet of Things in an uncomplicated and flexible way.

Cellular Edge

Our Connectivity Module and the associated SDK enable smooth operation between the device and the Cellular Hub.

Cellular Edge

Start Now

Start now: with our Cellular Edge component, consisting of our Nordic nRF9160 Connectivity Board, the corresponding firmware and Hub SDK.

With our hardware solution, you can communicate directly and smoothly with the Cellular Hub via NB-IoT thanks to a soldered SIM card. All telemetry data and also your user data are sent encoded in Lightweight M2M. The firmware of our connectivity board can be updated contactless via the cellular network ex works.

Furthermore, the Connectivity Board can be extended flexibly with a selection of different daughterboards.

Cellular Connectivity

Utilize the advantages of LPWA

One of the biggest advantages of cellular connectivity is the use of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology, which is intended for low-power devices. Two of the most prominent solutions are the globally licensed technologies LTE for Machines (LTE-M) and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT).

With LPWA, you can maximize coverage up to 164 dB with low power consumption. This means your products can be in use for up to 15 years. At the same time, they achieve the desired connectivity even in the most remote locations with poor cellular reception. With NB-IoT - which can penetrate up to three brick walls - you can thus connect devices located in traditionally poorly accessible locations, such as underground garages or rural areas.

A common prejudice against mobile-based solutions is the variety of tariffs and running costs that are difficult to predict. To help you overcome this hurdle, we have created the exclusive Narrowband+ offer in cooperation with our parent company Vodafone to minimize commercial risks.

Cellular Hub

Data exchange,
Stable and scalable

Cellular Hub is a service powered by grandcentrix that enables the exchange of data between your product and your cloud platform with a stable, scalable and secure connection.

Cellular Hub automatically detects your device's data traffic based on the built-in SIM card, so that secure and cost-efficient direct mapping of the transmitted data can be carried out in your target system. In doing so, we rely on open industry standards and support Lightweight M2M, MQTT and Azure IoT Hub.

Cellular Hub is operated by the grandcentrix operations team and integrated (double redundant) directly into the global Vodafone backbone.
