Telecoms use the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver a collection of products and services that bring additional value to their existing networks. In some cases, telecoms built separate networks specifically for their IoT platform. These IoT platforms that can be used as the foundation for developers and businesses to create their own IoT products and services.


Many of the telecoms that support and use IoT devices have roaming capabilities where devices can still connect to a cellular network in geographic areas the primary telecom does not have infrastructure. AT&T, Orange, Vodafone, and Verizon all say they have roaming capabilities for their IoT devices because of the SIM cards capabilities in the devices. Vodafone has partnered with AT&T for NB-IoT roaming in the United States and Europe.
