They include monitoring elderly relatives, locating family pets or tracking the location of various types of equipment.
The Orange IoT service provides tangible business benefits for Yepzon. They include: seamless SIM card ordering, simple activation and tracking through a dedicated portal; one price per SIM card regardless of location; and scalable connectivity reaching 220 countries and territories.
