Telit’s company strategy has been one of organic growth alongside the M2M industry, capitalizing on long-standing customer relationships and reoccuring income through its value-added services unit, and strategic acquisitions that have included the likes of Motorola M2M and GlobalConect in 2011, Navman Wireless OEM (original-equipment manufacturer) solutions in 2012, CrossBridge Solutions and ILS Technology in 2013, and the ATOP (automotive telematics onboard-unit platform) business from NXP Semiconductors in 2014. These strategies have helped to put Telit at the forefront of M2M and the IoT (Internet of Things) and then keep it there.

Telit launched its first M2M module—Datablock—way back in 1998. After years of organic growth and successfully integrating other businesses into the company’s global organization, Telit now owns a significant market share and has come a long way from its roots as an engineering company that provided research and development services to multinational telecoms in 1986.

Today, Telit’s three tech pillars include cellular, short-to-long-range license-free wireless, and position awareness technology such as GNSS (global navigation satellite system) for connected devices. The company offers a wide range of services, including its deviceWISE application enablement platform, and is unique in its “ONE STOP. ONE SHOP.” delivery model that provides all the tools customers need to leverage M2M and the IoT.

Alongside product announcements, including a new GNSS positioning module; new partnerships, including one with Agnik, a distributed data analytics software company; and new customers, Telit continues to push the industry forward by participating in IoT standards and regulatory bodies and by educating the market. For instance, the company is sponsoring the IOTORAMA Web Project, which engages people in a game-like interface to help them explore the IoT. By demonstrating the possibilities and implications of connected technologies, including how connectivity can enhance people’s lives, Telit shows a continuing dedication to growing the industry it serves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Added to long list of strategic acquisitions by integrating the ATOP business from NXP Semiconductors in 2014
  • Offers one-stop shop for companies looking to adopt M2M/IoT
  • Beyond strengthening product portfolio and winning customers, Telit invests in the space by advancing standards and educating the market
