Press Release 10/17/2018: Able Device Announces Commercial Relationship with Transaction Network Services, Inc.

Able Device to provide SIMbae™ for enhancing Quality of Service and Service Assurance in TNS’ mobile offerings.

Raleigh, NC, October 17, 2018 – Able Device, a pioneer in SIM-based IoT/M2M application technology today announced an agreement to provide Transaction Network Services Inc. (TNS) with its flagship product, SIMbae, to enhance the Quality of Service (QoS) and Service Assurance (SA) of TNS’ mobile offerings.

SIMbae by Able Device is a light-weight applet that embeds on any standard Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) or eUICC, providing standards based IoT device connectivity and network management tools. SIMbae’s innovation is centered on enabling the SIM to execute programs independently of the baseband or application processor to control device components such as the communications module. Because SIMbae adheres to all 3GPP standards, it does this without the need for the IoT Service Provider to change the deployment of their existing standard network elements and end point IoT devices.

“We’re excited that TNS selected SIMbae as part of their leading-edge mobile solutions offering,” said Roger Dewey, CEO of Able Device. “Our agreement illustrates the benefits of SIMbae across the IoT solution value chain,” concluded Dewey.
