- The Cologne-based technology company, including Miami, has branches in nine countries on three continents.
- SoftBank and Deutsche Telekom invested another $ 50 million in 1NCE for global expansion.
- The decision in favor of Miami was made due to the attractive supply of skilled workers and the high quality of life on site.
1NCE, the first mobile IoT connectivity and software provider with a global flat rate, announced the opening of its new North American headquarters in Miami at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES). The Cologne-based company was founded in 2017 and has offices in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Miami, Rome, Paris, Warsaw, Hong Kong and Riga. Ivo Rook, Chief Operating Officer of 1NCE, will also take on the role of President North America.
Just recently, 1NCE received $ 50 million from multiple investors such as SoftBank and Deutsche Telekom to fund expansion in the United States and Asia. After a nationwide search process and with the support of the office of Miami’s Mayor Francis Suarez, the company has chosen the coastal city in southern Florida. 1NCE is now looking for a permanent location in the “Magic City” for around 100 to 150 new employees who will be hired on site over the next three years.
“With an enormous number of digital innovation companies and world-class universities as well as strong logistics and infrastructure, Miami offers fertile ground for 1NCE’s ambitious growth plans in the US and beyond. 1NCE is the only IoT carrier to offer flat-rate connectivity and software that can be deployed immediately anywhere in the world and at the same time offers flexibility in the design and monitoring of the IoT. This also enables smart city projects that can really change the way we live and work, “explains Ivo Rook, Chief Operating Officer and President North America at 1NCE. “Thanks to Mayor Suarez, we now have a fantastic new base for our future US employees to drive the innovation of 1NCE.”
“1NCE is an exciting addition to the rapidly growing list of dynamic tech companies that call Miami home. Miami’s range of technology professionals is one of the most sought-after in the country. I have no doubts that 1NCE will bring the brightest, best people to its team “, stressed Mayor Francis Suarez. “I’m excited to welcome 1NCE to Miami, and I can’t wait for more Internet of Things companies to follow suit.”
1NCE has set itself the task of providing global IoT Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) with simplicity and scalability for companies across borders and industries. And all for a flat rate of 10 euros for 10 years.
More than 70 percent of IoT projects involve multinational networks. Up to 75 percent of all IoT projects fail due to underestimated costs and insufficient planning. This is where 1NCE brings predictability: With a simple IoT flat rate offer that is available worldwide for a period of 10 years, the company significantly reduces IT costs and the uncertainty regarding future price increases and at the same time increases flexibility in the programming and management of IoT Networks. The next product enhancements at 1NCE now focus on intelligent software connectivity and over-the-top (OTT) services that are one step ahead of the development of the IoT industry.
By 2022, 1NCE plans to expand the coverage of its services from around 100 to over 140 countries while increasing the number of Tier 1 cellular operators in its global CaaS network by 25 percent.
1NCE is the first mobile IoT connectivity and software provider based on a global flat rate and offers fast, secure and reliable cellular connections and software services in more than 100 countries worldwide. 1NCE mainly cooperates with Deutsche Telekom AG and its roaming partners in order to support all common mobile radio standards such as 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, NB-IoT and LTE-M. The 1NCE IoT Flat Rate is designed in such a way that it can cover the entire lifespan of an IoT device with a single payment. This makes IoT applications affordable and scalable for use cases such as smart metering, asset tracking or vehicle telematics. 1NCE also offers its technology to mobile network operators as a platform-as-a-service solution. The company, headquartered in Cologne, was founded in 2017 by CEO Alexander P. Sator together with Deutsche Telekom AG and employs around 200 people in Cologne, Hamburg, Amsterdam, London, Rome, Paris, Warsaw, Hong Kong and Riga. More information at www.1nce.com.
