LISBON -- Based in Lisbon, CoSwitched is a new Telecom startup that seeks to take advantage of the current vibe surrounding Internet of Things to offer a pan-European mobile virtual network.

CoSwitched announced today the soft launch of its service.

Launched to provide an easy way to manage your connected machines across Europe, CoSwitched connects machines to the Internet using GSM connectivity in more than 20 countries.

"IoT is the most existing and one of the fastest growing markets at the moment. Machines can be connected to the Internet using many technologies. Traditional operators and their partners dominate the GSM connectivity service, however times have changed. We truly believe that the industry lacks a different type of connectivity provider." said Bruno Duarte, Co-founder of CoSwitched, "CoSwitched aims to disrupt the market with a simple, affordable and no frills and no boundaries value proposition. We expect to have between 10 to 15 thousand GSM connections in the first year."

CoSwitched is a lean organisation with key partnerships and is focused on the essentials. As a result, CoSwitched will be the first affordable pan-European GSM connectivity provider for machines on the market. In addition, CoSwitched provides a state-of-the-art platform to manage and monitor the connectivity of the machines.

Popping up
I have seen a lot of news about service providers jumping on the M2M connection as a service. It makes a lot of sense because most of these devices use very low bandwidth providers can extend the usable life of their legacy networks as they upgrade.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
