KORE, a global leader in Internet of Things (“IoT”) solutions and worldwide Connectivity-as-a-Service (“CaaS”), also announced that it has been named by Gartner as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services, further advancing its position as a visionary for IoT. The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“For the second year in a row, KORE is honored to be recognized as the only independent service provider in the Leader’s Quadrant,” said KORE President and CEO, Romil Bahl. “KORE is here to help customers overcome IoT adoption challenges by simplifying the myriad complexities, and hence help them effectively deploy, manage, and scale their IoT solutions for an accelerated return on investment.”

KORE has invested significantly in its IoT platform and also its eSIM and Core Network technology stacks, which combine to position KORE as a leader in the adoption of eUICC technology, the next generation of IoT connectivity. With secure network architecture, IoT-optimized rate plans, and a unified, powerful connectivity management platform, KORE makes it simple to deploy complex, global IoT solutions.
