Kaleido’s IoT Leaders: Vodafone and Eseye

This year’s benchmarking study is Kaleido’s most detailed yet, with leading vendors’ products closely aligning with current and near-term market needs identified by Kaleido through multiple surveys completed throughout the year, in addition to ongoing dialogue with ecosystem service providers.

Erik Brenneis, CEO of Vodafone Business IoT, stated: “As more and more customers adopt and rely on IoT, platform performance and capability become paramount. I am therefore delighted that Kaleido has recognized our connectivity management platform, GDSP, as the number one champion in their eSIM & CMP Vendor Hub assessments for 2023. By developing and owning our platform, we can respond rapidly to changing customer and market demands to ensure that our customers are always at the forefront of IoT.”

Eseye‘s CEO Nick Earle comments, “We are honored to be recognized as a Kaleido Champion for eSIM Connectivity Solutions provider in the industry for the third consecutive year, and this year as the #1 assessed vendor. This amazing achievement is an outstanding recognition of our technical capabilities in the IoT connectivity market and reinforces our leading position to deliver highly reliable global IoT connectivity that helps enterprises confidently deploy IoT at scale anywhere in the world. IoT can make a positive difference to hundreds of thousands of businesses and people across the globe, but it is only possible with near-100% connectivity reliability.”

Eseye’s Global Reach: A Leader in eSIM Connectivity

Eseye’s eSIM Connectivity solution includes advanced multi-IMSI and eUICC technology, and its AnyNet Federation has extensive access to over 700 mobile networks across the globe, allowing it to intelligently provide an optimized blend of local and roaming solutions to deliver ultra-reliable device connectivity. Eseye’s connectivity strategy from the outset was to provide more choices and options, not only across different MNOs and regions to maximize resiliency and performance but also across more commercial options, to protect long-term investments, and to provide the maximum flexibility to customers around how they integrate with operators. This is evident in the company’s most recent partnership with MTN, a South African mobile network operator, which signed a multi-year agreement with Eseye to help it provide resilient IoT connectivity capabilities across Africa and beyond.

Champion vendors received Kaleido scores of 12 and above, out of a total of 15; meanwhile, High-Flyers received scores between 10 and 12.

Connectivity Leaders: Lowering Commercial and Technical Roadblocks

Kaleido’s research throughout the year has underlined the need for service providers to offer solutions that enable increasingly sophisticated enterprise clients to reduce risk for connected device programs, as well as navigate their way through a complex web of challenges that have historically created issues in scaling operations up.

Steffen Sorrell, Chief of Research at Kaleido Intelligence, commented: “Connectivity is the bedrock of IoT, but it remains fragmented with a series of roadblocks in place that often lead to project failure. Leaders in the market are lowering those roadblocks, be it through their underlying infrastructure and software, connectivity agreements, or seamless management across different realms of connectivity enablement.”

The leadership scoring analysis for 39 different connectivity vendors is summarized in the Connectivity Vendor Hub report, along with an assessment of company strengths and opportunities.
