I have recently stumbled upon Twillio and it’s definitely quite an interesting company. The company main focus is handling the backend and connecting to various telecom hardware by exposing a globally available cloud API that developers can use to build communications systems.

Here I am writing about the products called Super SIM (one SIM to connect IoT devices globally) and Narrowband (the SDK and developer kit for the NB-IoT). The Super SIM is done in partnerships with Singtel, Telefonica and Three group to provide a SIM card that works everywhere in the world.

The Narrowband focus is currently only on the U.S. and the NB-IoT network of T-mobile. The offering includes Twilio’s Programmable Wireless and SIM card, IoT developer kit with an Arduino-based development board, standard Grove sensors and SDK for optimizing network registrations and communication between devices and the cloud.

More information can be found here. The product page about Super SIM and about Narrowband.
