Twilio enters IoT market with new wireless API and connectivity platform

Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 15:04 CET | News

Twilio launched Twilio Programmable Wireless, a mobile communications platform that lets developers use simple APIs to power a wide range of internet-connected products. The new platform is self-service, pay-as-you-go, has extensive documentation and enables developers to begin building IoT products immediately, the company said. 

Twilio said the new platform handles the complexity of dealing with carrier business models while empowering developers to focus their time and energy on building innovative connected products. With Twilio Programmable Wireless, Twilio provides SIM cards that give developers access to global connectivity in more than 120 countries and an API-first platform that enables them to begin building IoT products.

Twilio’s API-first approach allows developers to program mobile connectivity into their devices in the same way Twilio has enabled developers to programmatically embed communications into their applications. The Wireless platform makes it easy for IoT developers to configure SIM cards, manage connectivity and is built on the same Twilio platform that delivers the highest levels of quality and resiliency, the company said.
