As the result of an exceptional partnership in R&D, Transatel and Ledger’s IoT project was awarded as “Most Compliant” at the IoT Awards 2020. The ceremony took place on September 24th at the IoT Solutions and M2M Congress in Paris, Porte de Versailles. Transatel is the leader of global secure cellular connectivity for the Internet of Things, and Ledger is a world expert in encrypted data security with blockchain. Together, they were able to answer the European energy leader’s request: the certification and traceability of the green energy distributed on the continent.
Global cellular connectivity enables a transparent ecological transition
Transatel and their partner Ledger were honoured to win an IoT Award 2020 for their renewable energy certification project. Ledger Origin’s technology and Transatel’s global cellular connectivity solution have enabled the first project of its kind, based on the digitization of energyassets. This innovative project serves the environmental transition, as it offers certified proof of origin for the renewable energy produced.

Transatel’s SIM card connects Ledger Origin trackers for data collection worldwide
The “certification of origin for green energy” project brings together Ledger’s expertise in blockchain technology and security and Transatel’s leading global cellular connectivity solution. The project was singled out based on Transatel’s flexibility and agility to adapt to Ledger Origin’s specific needs, allowing for a single integration between Ledger’s servers and Transatel’s, and enabling global deployment.
Ledger Origin Oracles directly collect data from numerous renewable energy production sites. All the data is aggregated by a Ledger Origin Field Gateway, requiring Transatel’s SIM card with an international MNC (Mobile Network Code) to be securely transferred to Ledger Origin’s cloud servers.
Transatel and their partner Ledger have consequently been awarded for their innovation in the environmental transition, in front of a broad audience during the ceremony of the IoT Awards 2020. Indeed, the IoT and M2M Solutions congress registered a record number of international attendees, with more than 191 exhibitors from the industries of Big Data, blockchain, energy, IoT, mobility, telecom, or IT security.
Now a member company of NTT Group, one of the largest telecom companies in the world, Transatel offers an unparalleled, eSIM-capable, cellular solution for global and secure IoT connectivity. Since its inception in 2000, the company has launched over 170 MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators), establishing Transatel as the leading European MVNE/A (Mobile Virtual Network Enabler/Aggregator).
