M2M Connectivity for Hardware Startups and Internet of Things (IoT) Applications Developers

Podsystem Startup Support Packs for M2M Connectivity

At Podsystem we understand the challenges faced by new businesses as they are getting started. In the M2M technology sector it is crucial to move quickly in testing products and applications in order to get them to market before the competition. But how can M2M hardware and IoT applications developer startups do this without the risk of signing a 12 or 24 month contract before knowing if the product will work? Podsystem’s M2M Startup Support Package is here to help.

Data and M2M Connectivity

Try before you buy with our Podsystem M2M Trial Packs. Perfect for hardware startups breaking into the Internet of Things (IoT) market, our M2M trial packs are:

  • Prepaid. Test our prepaid M2M SIM cards with your hardware and firmware before entering into a contract
  • Flexible. Trial SIMs for the time period that suits you. From 1 to 3 months.
  • No obligation. If you decide not to continue using Podsystem SIMs, we will deactivate them after the trial.
  • No risk. With our prepaid trial data SIMs there are no bill shocks and no long term contracts to worry about. If you decide to enter a contract with us, we will roll-over the value of any unused trial SIM data as credit on your account.

Apply to test our M2M Trial SIMs and our Startup Support Team will get right back to you from our San Francisco office to discuss your hardware or application, your connectivity requirements and M2M SIM card needs.

Expert Advice on Firmware, Programming and Compatibility

Podsystem is an experienced M2M Service Provider dedicated to supporting new startups in the M2M industry and IoT sphere. We can advise on firmware and programming for mobile network / GSM connectivity before the hardware device is manufactured and throughout the entire development process. As a result we aim to ensure compatibility with GSM network SIM cards, avoid costly re-builds, improve the reliability of the device and guarantee seamless connectivity.

We have specialist knowledge across M2M industry sectors and M2M applications and can provide invaluable support to M2M hardware startups and IoT application developers throughout the development process to help ensure devices connect and transmit data effectively.

We provide a personal service right from our office in San Francisco, California. Contact our specialist Startup Support Team by calling now at +1 415 429 0174, emailing or via our contact form.

Full Product Lifecycle Support Through our M2M and IoT Partnership Programme

As an MVNO, PodsystemM2M employees are specialists in M2M connectivity via mobile networks. We understand that getting a new product to market requires much more than securing a data connectivity contract. You need web interfaces, applications and support with hardware design to bring it to market as a complete product. We can help with that too! We work with a range of partners in San Francisco and worldwide, and together we can provide an end-to-end support service, getting your product to market as soon as possible.
