Orange Business Services has launched its Datavenue offering outside of France as it looks to help enterprises develop IoT products.
The product, which has been available in France since last year, offers businesses four main services.
First, companies can select from a range of connected objects, such as sensors and cameras, and data sources including population movement analytics from anonymised mobile network data.
A range of connectivity options, including cellular, fixed and satellite networks, and Orange’s dedicated IoT network based on LoRa technology is also on offer.
Third, data management software that can be installed remotely or on-premise is offered to monitor devices.
Finally, Orange said it would ensure end-to-end security and data protection, integration with information systems and service scalability.
Datavenue is backed by 700 IoT and analytics experts, the France-based operator said, citing connected street lights, parking meters and medical devices as use cases.
OBS operates more than 10 million active B2B objects and processes 65 million items of technical data per minute currently.
In March, it revealed that insurance companies AXA and Harmonie Mutuelle are using Datavenue to develop services.
Olivier Ondet, VP of IoT and Analytics at OBS, said: “We have developed extensive vertical expertise around IoT and data analytics in several sectors, including automotive, industry, smart cities, healthcare and smart homes.
“Our solutions have already improved performance and employee safety through industrial machinery monitoring, enhanced patient care with remote assistance, and enriched citizen well-being with smart city services.
“This is now all being brought together to support the international launch of Orange Datavenue.”
