BICS & Telcofan partner for manufacturing connectivity

BICS and Telcofan simplify connectivity for manufacturers, BICS’ Divya Ghai Wakankar & Telcofan’s Lieven Vanthomme tell us more

BICS has announced its partnership with Telcofan, to support the delivery of private networks for manufacturing customers.

Belgium telecommunications company BICS connects communities with solutions such as IoT and cloud communications. Wireless solutions company Telcofan is also based in Belgium and was founded in 2004. The company uses the latest in manufacturing innovation to deliver cost-effective wireless solutions for clients. 

Enhancing manufacturing security and connectivity

In modern manufacturing, security is of increasing importance, from the supply chain to internal communications. Manufacturers want to adopt private mobile networks to connect on-site machines and IoT devices. Private networks offer clear connectivity and security. 

This partnership between BICS and Telcofan will answer these technical issues, as Telcofan will be able to offer its customers SIMs and eSIMs for their connected devices. Together, BICS and Telcofan will be able to empower these eSIMs to roam between public and private networks and even use national public networks. The collaboration means organisations can more easily implement use cases that require end-to-end connectivity, such as asset tracking and mission-critical applications.

BICS and Telcofam are transforming manufacturing and logistics

Divya Ghai Wakankar, VP of Enterprise Business & Marketing at BICS, said that this partnership will allow manufacturers to work much more efficiently. 

“Technologies like IoT and machine-to-machine communication have long-promised to transform the manufacturing industry,” said Wakankar. “However, initial technical hurdles required to get these solutions up and running such as integration or connectivity often require specialist expertise. With BICS and Telcofan, manufacturers can avoid this with a global SIM/eSIM and a platform that makes connecting devices simple, from network roaming through to SIM provisioning.”

“Private networks, particularly in the case of 5G, promise to transform businesses like manufacturing and logistics, but technical complexity can be a barrier to adoption,” said Lieven Vanthomme, Managing Director at Telcofan. “Alongside BICS, Telcofan is making it easier than ever with one SIM, with one unique identity, to use on your private network or even an operator network.”
