In This Episode – Smart Solutions Integrating Blended Networks (With John Hubler)

An IoT deployment is only as functional as the network to which it is connected. Yet sometimes, our connected devices need to move from place to place without losing a signal – and not every device, network, or SIM can support that. This is why Soracom offers a blended network solution that involves support from not just multiple carriers but also multiple connectivity technologies.

This week we’re talking to John Hubler, co-founder and partner of the BH IoT Group, about the value of an IoT deployment that involves multiple connectivity technologies. Whether it’s WiFi and Bluetooth or cellular and satellite, modern device ecosystems are more complex and versatile than ever – and blended networks are fast becoming a necessity. 

John will give us the benefit of his experience, discussing how blended networks are empowering new innovations and strengthening solutions to better connect the world. This episode is perfect for those individuals struggling with keeping their deployments connected consistently and who may be interested in building on their existing stack and embracing new ways to connect.
