GlobalData - Global Industrial IoT Services Product Assessment - December 2022

Orange Business is very strong in the IoT services market, having steadily built the business from basic machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity to now include end-to-end solutions that span many network types, horizontal and vertical applications, advanced data analytics, and deep professional expertise in support of development, integration, and operation of IoT deployments.

Key benefits include its own IoT service delivery and application enablement platforms; widespread network coverage across fixed, cellular, and local access technologies; deep experience in mobile private networks; expertise in security and cloud; and the ability to serve multinational corporations (MNCs) internationally, as well as SMEs and national enterprises locally through Orange operating companies.

These strengths give it the flexibility to deliver IoT solutions in a variety of business models, whether connectivity only is required or a business requires an end-to-end solution.

On the connectivity side, Orange is capable of supporting almost any potential network type. Cellular solutions include embedded SIMs (eUICC, available globally and across 18 European countries for business-to-consumer [B2C] services), which have led to large connected car deals, but Orange also provides LPWA support with LoRaWAN, LTE-M, and NB-IoT. In doing so, the provider can offer the right network technology for each use case.
