Plus, property managers simply don’t have the time Read more about SmartRent scales to 850K+ smart home devices with Twilio IoT[…]

Lime blows past 100 million rides in two years with Twilio IoT

With scalable APIs and one global SIM, Lime relies on the Twilio IoT platform to maintain its momentum. Electric cars and hybrids have gained massive popularity for long commutes and crowded freeways. However, the evidence shows that most cars are actually used for very short distances—less than a few miles. Thankfully, a new ride is on the rise. Electric scooters and bikes, part of the rise of the micromobility movement, only emit 1-2% of what a car does. With an estimated market growth of $500 billion by 2030 according to McKinsey, micromobility is taking the market by storm.Lime’s massive market success First deployed at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in January 2017, you can now find Lime’s green-colored electric scooters in more than 120 cities spanning 30+ countries. As one of the micromobility market leaders, Lime has already surpassed 100 million rides. The need for multiple operators hinders growth Lime’s ambitious goal of becoming a global brand would have required contracts with numerous Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) for wireless connectivity—at least one in each of the 30 countries they wanted to expand into. That arrangement would have complicated operator management, with different monthly bills to pay and multiple Read more about Lime blows past 100 million rides in two years with Twilio IoT[…]

IoT Connectivity for Telehealth and Telecare

Digital health, or telehealth, a thriving area of innovation, is changing how we treat and care for the ageing, sick and vulnerable. These innovations rely on IoT devices, whether in homes or on the body. Such devices rely on good connectivity to securely transmit data to the device operator’s cloud, where data is analysed in real-time, and life-improving recommendations made. These connected healthcare innovations present a huge businesses opportunity for tech companies, and cost reduction in health, care, and insurance. As populations age and more people live with chronic conditions and disabilities, this is a rapidly expanding opportunity for both business innovation and social good. Ensuring such devices have the connectivity to reliably capture, share and analyse data is key to success.

Bar Analytics serves data on millions of drinks with Twilio IoT

Bar Analytics relies on Super SIM to turn beer pours into insights. Thousands of years since its inception, beer (that golden, malty flavored, alcoholic beverage) is the third most consumed beverage in the world today. Today, though, most breweries have little insight into customers, buying patterns, or quality of their beer flowing through taps. That’s all changing thanks to Bar Analytics. Now global beer brands have visibility into each and every pour—including temperature, volume, and quality, by detecting line cleaning—to help deliver an experience that lives up to their brand.Serving up data with IoT At the end of the day, better quality beer means increased sales for multi-national breweries. That’s where Bar Analytics comes in. Their cellular-connected flow sensors with power, antennae, and SIM card sit right inside beer taps and turn each of those pours into valuable business data. To win and retain the largest breweries in the world as customers, it is critical Bar Analytics establishes real-time, trustworthy data connectivity.Taps running dry on data Beer taps are often under counters and in cellars where coverage can be extremely poor, making cellular coverage a challenge for their connected beer taps. Downtime in sensors means lost data—and for Bar Analytics, Read more about Bar Analytics serves data on millions of drinks with Twilio IoT[…]
