Organisations worldwide rely on Modica’s IoT platform to send, receive and aggregate data from millions of devices worldwide, so that they can focus on serving their customers better.
There is a growing list of SMS use cases in both the Machine to Application (M2A) and the Application to Machine (A2M) areas. At Modica Group, our OMNI platform is constantly being expanded to include additional messaging services to support new technologies and our customers' changing needs.
We currently support connections to loT devices though both Direct Carrier and International Partner routes for 3G and 4G connectivity. We also have a current program of work integrating the newer loT networks including: NB-loT, LoRaWAN and LTE-Cat Ml.
When our customers need to send or receive messages or data to loT devices from their backend applications, we provide application connectivity via one of our range of APls. If the requirement is for manual communications, our customers utilise one of the tools from our suite of hosted applications in the OMNI platform.
Available Network Types are SMPP for traditional SMS messages, the Paging network, LoRaWAN and NB-IoT for NarrowBand IoT connected devices.
Aggregate loT devices across networks and geographies to manage all devices through a single provider. Decrease touchpoints when troubleshooting; use a single SLA and reduce setup time and cost.
Develop loT systems without the need for an app to communicate with end users and devices by taking advantage of Modica-hosted applications and APls.
Drastically reduce development time and prevent ongoing app maintenance by quickly connecting via our plug-and-play APls.
Users today are resistant to downloading apps - combat this app-fatigue by leveraging two-way SMS communications. Your IoT devices can then respond with actionable code.
loT systems coordinate thousands of devices and thus demand a stable and scalable solution for task automation. SMS messages can wake up devices, initiate device data transmission, transport critical data to/from devices and even facilitate over-the-air provisioning.
SMS for business communication is growing. COVID-19 has forced businesses to communicate more, potentially adding to the noise and clutter of the marketing and communication space yet when things get complicated, we revert to basic principles and reliable communication methods to cut through “the chatter”.
