ALPHARETTA, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–KORE, the people powering IoT innovations and opportunities, today announced a partnership with Elo, a global supplier of digital touchscreen solutions, to power its new I-Series line for the Android platform. The partnership allows all Elo I-Series devices to be set up right out of the box on KORE’s seamless, global network.
Simply by contacting KORE and providing the SIM card number included with the Elo device, customers are able to activate the devices instantly. The addition of cellular connectivity on the I-Series allows dynamic advertising by merchandising teams, creative agencies, PoP display and fixture companies where access to other networks is difficult. Two versions with KORE-powered cellular connectivity are available out of the box — through Vodafone for Europe and with AT&T for the U.S. market. If needed, customers can choose other carriers through a Bring Your Own Carrier option.
“Our customers look to us to deliver the best interactive experiences,” said Neeraj Pendse, director of product management, Elo. “Our devices are now ready for instant activation with the help of KORE’s seamless network; bringing these experiences to the end-user faster and more effectively.”
