SAP Expands SAP IoT Connect 365 with Narrowband IoT Connectivity to Address Evolving Needs of Operators and Enterprises

WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced the extension of the SAP IoT Connect 365 mobile service, adding narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) connectivity to its managed cloud-based service for operators and enterprises.

With connectivity among people, machines and things increasing exponentially, the NB-IoT connectivity provided by the enterprise service and the operator service for SAP IoT Connect 365 integrates applications that require indoor coverage, low cost and long battery life. With a single contract, operators and enterprises can streamline IoT connectivity with speed and ease, while securely and reliably meeting the needs of the connected world.

Through a virtual data center, SAP IoT Connect 365, enterprise service, and SAP IoT Connect 365, operator service, offer mobile network operators and enterprises unlimited NB-IoT bandwidth, with the ability to scale and adjust capacity as needed.

“SAP has extended narrowband-IoT protocol in its SAP IoT Connect 365. Working with carriers, it will enable new innovations for enterprise customers with minimal investment and impact on resources, allowing them to focus on bringing new solutions through new business models,” said Sethu Meenakshisundaram, president, SAP Digital Interconnect, SAP. “In response to customer needs, SAP has extended an existing offering that now allows operators and enterprises to serve their enterprise customers in innovative ways – with minimal investment and impact on resources. This lets them focus on increasing market share and profitability.”

The enterprise service and the operator service for SAP IoT Connect 365 manage the complex web of millions of connected things. The services enable customers to monitor usage, cost and performance of their global connected-object deployments, and in turn enhance their users’ experiences.
