After less than four years as a dedicated IoT Communications Service Provider, Tele2 IoT is named as one of the global IoT connectivity service providers in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.
Continuing its strong growth, Tele2 IoT currently has 150 employees and customers with devices in 160 countries. This year, Tele2 IoT has been included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, a culmination of research that positions players in the market of managed M2M services worldwide.
Rami Avidan, CEO Tele2 IoT, comments: “We believe that Gartner’s inclusion of us in the quadrant is a proof point of us delivering on our IoT strategy with the vision to become the orchestrator of a smarter world. We also see this as a recognition of our unique offering in the IoT market”.
When assessing Tele2 IoT’s services, Gartner looked at two key areas:
Completeness of vision - our market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, product strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy
Ability to execute - our product/service offering, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations
Based on the evaluation, Gartner places Tele2 IoT at the intersection of, Leaders, Visionaries, Followers and Niche players in the quadrant, and acknowledges Tele2 IoT across multiple vertical use cases in manufacturing, transportation and logistics, retail, and energy and utilities for MNCs requiring connectivity in a large number of countries in Europe and the Middle East.
