Pareteum Experience Cloud Connectivity for OEMs

Blog  |  Enterprise  |  Mobile Brands  |  Product

In this article, we’ll be discussing how Pareteum Experience Cloud can help Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) leverage Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity to build innovative products, parts, and devices. We will answer the following questions:

  • What are Original Equipment Manufacturers?
  • How can OEMs leverage connectivity to differentiate their products?
  • How can Pareteum facilitate this connectivity?

First, what are OEMs?

Put plainly, an OEM is a company that manufactures a product or part that is sold to another company, which resells it under its own brand. OEMs typically provide value-added resellers (VARs), such as auto companies or device manufacturers, with the various components that power their products.

By turning to OEMs, VARs are better able to deliver industry-leading technology, design, and value, without assuming the burdens and costs associated with development. Of course, the corollary of this is that OEMs, in order to offer VARs the best possible products, need to assume these responsibilities. So, the question is…


How can OEMs differentiate their products?

These days, connectivity is everything; and the advent of Wi-Fi 6 and 5G technologies have opened a whole new world of possibilities in the IoT (Internet of Things) space.

The Big Four in tech — Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple — have all staked their claims in the sector, developing a variety of virtual assistants, home security systems, appliances, and more. The auto industry too; with help from the FCC, which last year laid out a plan to reallocate 75 megahertz of the 5.9 GHz band for cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communications.

In fact, as we noted in a previous blog, there will likely be more than 40 billion IoT devices worldwide by 2025. These devices will span healthcare, logistics, automotive, aviation, construction, energy, public utilities, and more. Moreover, the increasing sophistication of such deployments means that there’s sure to be demand for compatibly intelligent parts.

So, one way for OEMs to seize this opportunity is to take a page from the IoT playbook. By leveraging Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity to create IoT-enabled products, they’ll be better able to compete in a fast-moving and innovative environment.


This is where the Pareteum Smart Network comes in…

Pareteum operates the largest Smart Network on the planet, with integrated cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity in 200+ countries and territories. By handing off between Wi-Fi and cellular networks based on quality and availability, Pareteum makes it possible for OEMs to keep their products, parts, or devices connected no matter what, at the lowest possible costs.

While our global cellular solution facilitates access to top tier voice and data connectivity from mobile networks all over the globe, the Pareteum Wi-Fi SmartConnect solution delivers door-to-door Wi-Fi connectivity in:

  • Nearly 700 airports
  • More than 5,000 airplanes from 40 of the world’s leading airlines
  • Tens-of-thousands of hotels and hospitality sites
  • Hundreds-of-thousands of restaurants, cafés, and coffee shops
  • And tens-of-millions of commercial and community venues

And, since SmartConnect secures all Wi-Fi connections via the Last Mile VPN, OEMs and the VARs that use their products will be better protected against devastating cyberattacks and data breaches.

Indeed, by leveraging the Pareteum Smart Network to empower their products with secure global connectivity, OEMs will be able to offer VARs an extremely versatile tool — one which will help them thrive in an increasingly connected world.
