This service is the first service package for KDDI IoT Worldwide Architecture*1, which was announced in June 2018, and supplies customers with one-stop provision of cloud infrastructure, communication channels, and communication devices. This service makes use of IoT solution “Meister RemoteXTM”, a service of Toshiba Digital Solutions Corporation (Head office: Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture; President and CEO: Hironobu Nishikori), in its speedy provision of data accumulation and visualization. For wireless communication, it uses the global roaming SIMs of SORACOM, INC. (Head office: Minato Ward, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Ken Tamagawa).

Global IoT Package is a one-stop-shop for a highly-expandable cloud service, global roaming service, and IoT communication devices that are certified under countries’ telecommunications laws – and can be used in small start projects with as few as a single communication device. This allows customers aiming for global deployment to quickly achieve IoT business innovations.

KDDI Group will continue to work with partners such as Toshiba Digital Solutions to support customers’ digital transformations using the IoT Worldwide Architecture.
