Hologram Introduces the World’s Largest LTE Software-Defined Cellular Network for IoT Applications

Hologram, a software-centric company has introduced the world’s largest LTE software-defined global cellular network for IoT devices and smart machines connectivity. The software-defined global network provides access to 600 cellular networks worldwide and is configurable through Hologram’s programmable network and APIs. The new network introduces micro pricing options down to the kilobyte, allowing for more transparent data pricing as well as increased flexibility for large applications and deployments for enterprise companies.

Hologram’s new network takes advantage of modern software frameworks to provide an ultra-scalable, self-improving cellular connection designed to scale quickly for the trillions of devices entering our world in the next decade. Hologram caters to the needs of enterprise customers through the most secure connection, advanced diagnostic and management tools, and customizable hardware.

With the announcement of their software-defined network, Hologram has condensed the full cellular infrastructure stack to just a handful of API calls. Historically, cellular infrastructure has been expensive, rigid, and difficult to maintain making it challenging to adapt the needs of IoT. By applying modern software technologies to cellular, Hologram’s software-defined network changes this paradigm. It allows great improvement in performance, cost, coverage and ease of use on a continuous basis, which in turn greatly expands the number of IoT applications that can take advantage of the ubiquity and security of a cellular connection.

Hologram is based in downtown Chicago, and is best known for developing cellular hardware and software solutions for IoT developers. They have been helping both SMB and enterprise customers integrate cellular connectivity into new applications and previously unconnected devices since 2013. Since then, Hologram has grown their cellular network to cover over 90% of the populated landmass worldwide, enabling a surge of smart machines designed to move across geographies without ever losing connection.

Developers can have free access to the network through the new Hologram Developer SIM which ships immediately.
