TEAL is an Internet of Things (IoT) networking company that provides programmable connectivity solutions to customers in Mobility, Transportation, Automation, Robotics, Industrial IoT, Manufacturing, HealthTech, AgTech, Defense, and Private LTE/5G.
Compatible with any IoT device, TEAL’s one-chip eSIM solution connects IoT device operators directly to the best carrier networks worldwide, in which it puts them in control of the public and private localized network credentials that live in their device, and gives them the freedom to choose which network they want their devices to connect to.
Many companies with IoT deployments that need cellular connectivity struggle to manage multiple network vendors and contracts across a wide spectrum of use cases with different connectivity requirements. As a result, these businesses have historically turned to Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) solutions to address their problems. However, MVNO’s claiming to offer programmability are simply roaming, which results in poor performance, a lack of redundancy, and higher costs. With Teal, connecting any IoT device on to top leading networks is effortless. Teal is the first US-built eSIM platform to be certified by the GSMA, giving enterprise customers secure, reliable, and affordable connectivity for IoT deployments at scale.
Through TEAL’s marketplace, customers can access 3,500+ public and private networks through the click of a button, pushing local network credentials from the cloud onto the IoT device, ensuring always-on connectivity regardless of where the devices travel in the world.
“If you view networks as apps, then Teal is like the App Store for installing network credentials onto an IoT device. With Teal it’s easier than ever to connect directly onto MNO’s leading network with the click of a button. This saves companies time and money while delivering all the advantages of MNO’s lightning-fast LTE and 5G networks,” said Robby Hamblet, Co-Founder and CEO at Teal.
Comparing a carrier network to an app on a smartphone helps to illustrate how Teal is simplifying the way that IoT devices connect to MON’s LTE and 5G networks. With Teal, enterprises can easily install any network credential into an IoT device with the push of a button, just like downloading an app on the App Store. Teal offers Credentialing-as-a-Service (CaaS), meaning that enterprises get the flexibility to programmatically control which networks live in their IoT devices over-the-air (OTA).
