Asavie said the service can be used by both small and large enterprises in healthcare, manufacturing, transport and more.

IoT Connect provides businesses with cellular mobile connectivity, an online self-care portal to manage IoT assets and a choice of private or Internet-based network solutions.

"To compete in today's IoT-driven economy, connectivity and the ability to securely manage the vast amounts of data transacted between devices is of paramount importance," said Asavie chief executive Ralph Shaw. "Eir's IoT Connect enables enterprises to confidently deploy and scale their machine to machine projects by securely managing their connection to the Internet," he said.

The managing director of Eir Business, Bill Archer, said: "Together with Asavie, Eir Business makes managing connected devices easier than ever, so businesses can focus on, collecting their data, refining their applications and ultimately building a better service for their customers."

The news comes off the back of a similar announcement made by Asavie where it unveiled a partnership with cloud computing giant EMC.

Asavie is providing the IoT connectivity platform for EMC's innovation testbeds that will look to explore new ideas in the IoT space.
