Special tariffs provides savings and enhanced security

Client Intro

As one of the leading telematics service providers in the entire Gulf region, our client’s business covers fleet management, location-based services, remote communication and GPS and satellite-based online tracking and monitoring for vehicles, assets and workforce.

The Client’s Problem

Based in the United Arab Emirates, our client are one of the leading telemetry and asset tracking businesses in the Middle East. As a burgeoning company, they started off using connectivity solutions provided by local networks, but none offered any type of control over a fast growing SIM portfolio.

The monthly data usage was low therefore cost wasn’t the main driver for reaching out to RiteSim. However in our initial assessment, one issue became clear. The local networks they were using were rounding each session up to the nearest 100kb. With multiple daily sessions and every time a session closed, the data use was rounded up. The company was paying for huge amounts of data they weren’t using.

The Ritesim Solution

RiteSim created a bespoke tariff designed for SIMs using less than 2MB/month, negotiating a deal with a Tier-1 Network Operator for a multiple-network roaming SIM that included rounding up to the nearest 1kb. As a company operating all over the Gulf region, Cisco-Jasper – the market-leading connectivity management platform which gives clients the ability to manage Internet of Things-connected devices – allowed them to take real-time control of each SIM. Our client was now able to view all of their IoT SIM connections, where they were, and remotely access them from the new platform. They now have a holistic view of their entire host of SIMs.

An additional feature which added to an already secure network, was IMEI pairing. As the SIMs were used in the company’s vehicles and other mobile assets, the Ritesim solution locked each SIM to the IMEI number of the modem so that the SIM couldn’t be removed. Even if it was, it couldn’t be used in any other device.

Results

Our solution has been in place for over three years and as well as an original 99% saving on the cost of rounded-up data sessions, the IoT system now tracks thousands of assets across the entire Middle East which can all be monitored in real-time.
