Online portal provides simple, self-serve access to TELUS’ dedicated IoT network, giving businesses the flexibility to quickly deploy IoT projects.
Launching today, the TELUS IoT (Internet of Things) Shop is Canada’s first self-serve online portal that enables businesses to easily purchase and manage prepaid IoT connectivity on Canada’s highest quality wireless network.
Ideal for businesses like IoT startups and developer labs, the TELUS IoT Shop makes it quick and easy for them to connect their IoT devices to TELUS’ 4G LTE and LTE-M networks, helping to streamline product development and accelerate smaller projects.
Previously, purchasing IoT connectivity meant committing to volume requirements, credit checks and other processes that made it difficult for smaller companies and organizations to test and deploy relatively smaller quantities of IoT devices. The TELUS IoT Shop removes these hurdles and gives customers the ability to pay with a credit card, monitor data usage online, quickly change rate plans and manage SIM statuses. These controls and more are all available within IoT Console, a one-stop account management dashboard.
Michael Cihra, Vice President, IoT, TELUS, said:
“For Canadian businesses innovating in the IoT space, direct access to reliable cellular connectivity is crucial. TELUS is excited to launch the IoT Shop, which removes barriers to entry and increases accessibility to the TELUS IoT network.”
“The IoT Shop was built based on customer feedback to ensure that the user experience, management tools and services meet the demands of the innovators that are shaping Canada’s growing IoT ecosystem.”
Providing network access for one to 100 SIM cards on an account, the TELUS IoT Shop provides flexible and affordable IoT connectivity with as little as 100 MB or as much as 40 GB of shareable data. To ensure devices stay connected, data plans auto renew on a 30-day cycle, or as soon as the data pool is exhausted.
“The TELUS IoT Shop has made ordering and managing IoT SIMs an easy, painless experience.” said Casey Matson-Dekay, CTO at Loop Insights. “The self-serve portal allowed me to order the SIMs I needed only a few days before they needed to be deployed. Once our devices were live, I immediately had full visibility into their usage and status, which helps Loop Insights remain agile and informed while we evolve our products.”
TELUS proudly supports the growth of the IoT ecosystem in Canada by helping businesses develop, connect and deploy connected technologies. In addition to the TELUS IoT Shop, our dedicated IoT network was built exclusively to connect IoT devices, TELUS launched Canada’s first IoT Marketplace to showcase connected solutions for a broad range of industries and the TELUS IoT Starter Kit provides startups the tools required to rapidly prototype connected solutions.
