JT helps Inmarsat Smart Cities flagship project

Inmarsat is the lead sponsor for Transform Africa Summit being held in Kigali, Rwanda on 10th – 12th May 2017, showcasing its smart cities flagship project by connecting Kigali with LoRaWAN™ infrastructure and some other technologies, such as the JT Nomad IoT Platform and IoT connectivity.

JT’s participation with Inmarsat to deliver a proof of concept for Smart City solutions benefits from its unique base of IoT connectivity, but extended into provisioning, monitoring and diagnosing third party applications and devices.

Using the JT Nomad IoT Platform to provide connectivity around cellular, Wi-Fi, and LoRa, networks, but importantly, to provide Smart Urban Solutions that can be provisioned, managed, invoiced and automated.  Leaving a blueprint for Kigali so that it can be used after the event to benefit the urban population of the city.

JT’s services are unique due to truly global coverage that utilizes over 600+ roaming agreements, with open roaming SIM, which is also software free with an extremely competitive price point. It also provides complete API integration and allows its users to construct, provision, bill and monitor complete IoT solutions.

NOMAD is a workflow engine that assembles all the many components of an IoT solution via API to third parties, allowing automated and controlled provisioning of point of sale, building controls, tracking/telemetry, and security solutions. NOMAD also integrates LoRa and Wi-Fi connectivity for “single pane of glass” visibility of hybrid estates.

Clients benefit from robust support, commercial and technical flexibility, unique features for real-time connectivity diagnostics and 24/7 support.
