How Product Partnerships are enabling IoT to Change Lives Across Africa

22/11/2017

The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting positively on the lives of millions around the world – possibly none more so than those in Africa. It is for this reason SolarNow and we here at Eseye have announced a new IoT partnership, powered by AWS, to provide connected solar energy to communities in East Africa.

Social business SolarNow provides solar powered equipment, appliances and financing services to remote or off-grid locations in the region. The system uses Eseye’s global AnyNet Secure SIM to provide secure cellular connectivity and delivers data onto the AWS Cloud; it will be demoed at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas from 27th November. The partnership has enabled SolarNow to move from a non-connected to a connected product offering and to take full advantage of the benefits of IoT, with better system oversight, enhanced security, remote device management options and improved client communication.
