Myriad launches Thingstream a global IoT connectivity platform built on USSD messaging

Despite massive growth, IoT is still a complex issue for businesses. By removing the internet aspect of IoT, Thingstream offers an easier route to secure, enterprise-grade global connectivity.

Myriad Group AG has launched Thingstream, a unique global M2M connectivity proposition that delivers true ubiquity, security and better connectivity for IoT applications via the world’s first global IoT connectivity platform.

The global M2M platform offers a ubiquitous solution for a broad range of IoT applications; ideally suited to devices which move, are in remote locations or need to be super secure before connecting to the cloud. Thingstream’s solution leverages Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), universally available via Thingstream’s global roaming M2M SIM.

The company believes that the IoT options for industrial applications are too complex, expensive and fail to offer the required level of connectivity.

Neil Hamilton, VP of Business Development at Myriad explained: “To date, a typical solution for asset tracking typically involves cellular data, this by default requires not just a suitable roaming carrier partner who can match the enterprise’s footprint, but also means a device needs to support TCP/IP in order to communicate.
