Panasonic Unveils MVNO Service At MWC

When it comes to the Internet of Things (IoT), companies are always working overtime in order to find new and innovative ways to take advantage of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology. Panasonic Systems Communications Company Europe (PSCEU) has announced its plan to take advantage of the IoT with its very own Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO). This brand new MVNO will allow business devices to connect quickly and easily with the M2M cloud in order to handle a huge number of different devices.

Panasonic is so confident that its new MVNO will be a real competitor in this market that it showed it off at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which was held in Spain from March 2 to March 5. While the Panasonic MVNO isn’t fully operational yet, the firm said it is going to be working to integrate mobile connectivity across a number of different product lines. These products will then have an easy time accessing the Panasonic M2M cloud services.

Among the services that could be offered using this new MVNO will be remote monitoring, data collection and data analysis. With the recent rules being adopted by the FCC that seemingly bring true Net Neutrality, companies might be looking at bringing their own MVNOs even more. If this does come to pass, it means Panasonic has actually managed to beat the rush in this regard.

Along with the announcement of the Panasonic MVNO, the company also unveiled a number of devices that will be able to use the service in new and interesting ways. Among those devices was the Nubo 4G surveillance camera.  The company also announced heating and cooling solutions that can be monitored and controlled remotely using the Panasonic MVNO. By using M2M tech for these solutions, users will be able get significant savings and reduced carbon emissions. The heating and cooling solutions are being trialed right now by a major grocery store chain. Should this trial be a success, Panasonic will most likely expand to other companies.
