Integrated in Q2, traffic
and usage rapidly growing across verticals
Simfony MVNO customers enabled
to launch and grow IoT services globally
Lexington, MA – iBASIS, the leading provider of communications solutions for operators and digital players worldwide, today announced that Simfony, the leading IoT PaaS provider and MVNE, selected and integrated iBASIS Global Access for Things service into its real-time IoT platform and core network. Through the collaboration, Simfony powers its Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) customers by unlocking the opportunity to supply end-to-end IoT connectivity solutions. It enables newcomers with a lower entry point into M2M revenues and providers with a more competitive path to expand and drive their own branded mobile and IoT offerings.
The move capitalizes on
M2M connectivity and IoT growth driving the MVNO market, which is expected to
exceed US$74 Billion by 2024. The number of IoT devices in use is projected to
reach about 20.5 billion by 2020.
The iBASIS global IoT
service using eUICC technology and Simfony Platform integration was completed
in Q2. Both members of GSMA, the companies’ technology stacks aligned with
engineering teams building upon the same terminology. Since it went live,
service usage has grown rapidly. The solution has already expanded across use
cases spanning maritime, energy, and ocean cleaning applications. With iBASIS,
Simfony’s customers not only gain realtime deployment abilities, but also
best-of-market global data rates, while using an automated self-service portal
to manage and monitor their eSIMs in real-time.
Joachim de Wild, CEO of Simfony, comments, “We have investigated the eUICC market for the past two years, concluded that iBASIS is by far the most advanced partner in the field. We are impressed by the capabilities and expertise of its team. Together iBASIS’ eSIM global connectivity and our pay-as-you-grow model enable our customers to launch their IoT MVNO without the need for high upfront commitments. They can now be more competitive on global data rates, scale up to large volumes, and be in control using our self-service platform.”
Ajay Joseph, CTO, IoT & Technology for iBASIS, adds, “Our deployment with Simfony exemplifies the power of our Global Access for Things service. Integration was rapid and precise, and service established seamlessly. This is game changing. It makes the best possible global connectivity and eUICC technology available to the fastest growing segment of the communications market. Applications in new verticals, such as energy and ocean cleaning, reinforce the true versatility and power of our global IoT connectivity solution. We look forward to further deployments worldwide and an ever-stronger relationship with Simfony.”

The ink has now dried on Tofane’s latest acquisition agreements; however, the company’s momentum is picking up pace once again. Alexandre Pébereau, the company’s CEO and founder, talks to Laurence Doe.
ITW 2018’s hallways were filled with the buzz that an emerging newcomer, Tofane Global (“TOFANE”), was about to propel itself as a leading global operator with two back-to-back announcements for major acquisitions: SFR International Carrier Services, MEO International Carrier Services and Altice Dominicana International Carrier Services of Altice N.V., and iBASIS, a subsidiary of Royal KPN N.V.
On September 13, 2018, TOFANE completed its acquisition of the international voice carrier business of Altice Europe N.V.
Within six months, Group CEO Alexandre Pébereau, achieved the ambitious plan to own and operate both companies under the new rebranded iBASIS, with all companies together representing an estimated USD 1+ billion in annual revenue, leaping to the third largest wholesale voice operator, working with 1,000+ customers worldwide and 300 employees across 18 offices on four continents.
Through the M&As, TOFANE ensured that iBASIS retained its long-standing partnership with KPN for voice, roaming, mobile data, transmission, and IoT. Immediately, Altice Europe N.V. and iBASIS customers received the benefit from combined market coverage, voice volumes, and an expanded portfolio of mobile data and Internet of Things solutions.
M&As AND INTEGRATION AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
Through the acquisition, traffic consolidation across merged entities has:
Expanded Direct Network Operators connections to over 300
Increased fixed and mobile destinations to 2,000+
Increased the international voice business by:
Doubling traffic volume, including a third in retail traffic
Adding + 80 new interconnects
With the objective to become a single consolidated network by the end of 2019, iBASIS already completed alignment of financial accounts, pricing development, routing strategies and building capacity, while growing the business, managing margin risk, and minimizing provisioning and resources planning on both sides of the process. iBASIS has taken a commercially-led approach to consolidation, including:
Maintaining flexibility to support multiple billing entity requirements of our global business relationships
Investing in the iBASIS network to accommodate expansion beyond the current combined volumes and forecast growth
Evaluating partner commercial simplification and legal entity obligations for a partner consolidation and interconnect plan enabling prompt migration and avoiding contractual changes
Ninety-five per cent of partners have been contacted and are engaged with iBASIS to build any required new trunks and to complete a swift migration to a simplified operating model.
