Embedded electronics supplier SECO has chosen Telenor Connexion to support its new family of IIoT-oriented products with cutting-edge mobile connectivity.

SECO, a leading embedded electronics supplier, has partnered with Telenor Connexion in the development of its new IIoT (Industrial IoT) system. The all-in-one solution integrates Telenor Connexions’ managed connectivity and managed IoT Cloud solutions, with industrial hardware (sensors and gateways), software (web technologies, machine learning, data mining, edge computing, mobile apps) and services (predictive maintenance, remote asset and energy management, IoT Big Data analytics) from SECO – all provided as a service.

SECO’s innovative IIoT system aims to unlock new smart functionalities in old machinery. Without the need of new certifications, the system optimizes scheduling of corrective maintenance, enables real-time and predictive maintenance, prevents unexpected equipment failures and therefore meaningfully extend the product life cycle. The system specifically targets the electromechanics field, but can be deployed in other industries as well.

“This marks a paradigm shift for SECO, which has been in the embedded market for over 38 years”, said Gianluca Venere, CSO & Director of Global Sales at SECO. “It is a bold leap towards new opportunities, from the production of physical goods to a product-as-a-service business model.”

The solution features quick and easy installation as well as interoperability with previous systems. It has standard serial interface protocols such as Modbus and Canbus for PLCs, is seamlessly integrated with project management software, and provides API for third-party data management. Telenor Connexion’s global SIM ensures global and seamless coverage tailored to customer’s needs, 24/7 support service and one single invoice, allowing customers to focus on developing their business.

“The pre-integrated technology from Telenor Connexion, combining hardware, global connectivity and cloud, enables SECO and us to create a one-stop-shop reducing time-to-market, costs and risks for end-customers”, said Cristoff Martin, CMO at Telenor Connexion. “It is a highly flexible solution fit for a range of usage areas and geographical markets.”

Telenor Connexion will supply mobile connectivity and Managed IoT Cloud on all products of SECO’s new IIoT product line.
