MTN launches AnyNet Federation with partner Eseye

b14d7eb771f2b312b1108dbed099b06dMTN has joined forces with IoT service provider Eseye and the AnyNet Federation to deliver a globally connected IoT cloud solution

The AnyNet Federation, a new MNO association specifically established to meet the complex management and enhanced resilience requirements of the rapidly expanding global IoT M2M customer base, will focus on delivering significant global cellular service growth to Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

It aims to make the complex global IoT landscape easier for AWS customers by delivering a single cellular M2M solution, which can be deployed seamlessly across major world markets.

Nick Earle, chairman and CEO of Eseye, said, ‘The AnyNet Secure is already the most feature rich and integrated connectivity solution for AWS, and the AnyNet Federation as a major way of delivering simplified connectivity on a global scale, whilst allowing customers buy and manage their connectivity from within AWS.”

Oliver Fortuin, enterprise executive of MTN Group, added, “We believe that through collaboration we can speed up the deployment of our customers’ global IoT and enhance their global business opportunities.”

AnyNet Federation partners are based on the geographic location of IoT devices that are automatically provisioned and certified over-the-air. Regardless of which AnyNet Federation partner is delivering the data, the customer is billed through their account by AWS, and the MNO is paid for the services it delivers.

The launch of the AnyNet Federation and its initial AWS market focus comes as Gartner forecasts that the worldwide public cloud services market will grow by 17.3 per cent in 2019 to a total of US$206.2bn, up from US$175.8bn in 2018; and Statista stated that 80 per cent of enterprises are both running apps or experimenting with AWS as their preferred cloud platform.
