JT was runner-up in the ‘Networking Innovations’ category at the recent NextGen Digital Challenge Awards 2017, which celebrates digital innovation in the British Isles.
The Channel Islands’ only locally owned telecommunications company was commended for its pioneering work that allows devices operating in the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) to communicate with each other without interruption, wherever they are in the world. Its ‘open roaming’ solution allows machines to connect using a JT SIM card.
With a standard single network SIM, there are dozens of single points of failure and potential problems with coverage but what makes JT’s solution special is that its SIM has no network preference. If data reaches a dead end or bottleneck, it will instantly switch to a fully functioning network.
The judges praised the independence of JT’s solution as well as its ‘NOMAD’ management platform, which provides dynamic coverage control, location services, elimination of overage charging and is also offered as a white label to customers.
