Enabling new IoT use cases with Lightbug's GPS trackers.
40% power savings.
60% cost reduction.
900% productivity increase.
Lightbug makes small and powerful GPS tracking devices. You'll find their products tracking assets, vehicle fleets, drones, people, and much more. Their trackers need global visibility and they didn't want to be tied into cellular data subscriptions. Flexible data pricing for global networks tied to value creation moments didn’t seem possible until they met with Onomondo.
With Onomondo’s global connectivity, Lightbug has one SKU, one APN, and one connectivity contract, dramatically reducing the complexity of managing a global fleet. Additionally, Lightbug passes Onomondo’s PAYG data pricing model on to their customers, making it easy to integrate IoT into products. Finally, Onomondo’s public API and real-time data monitoring tools streamline development, scaling, and operation.
Small trackers with a long battery life and no subscription.
Lightbug and Onomondo started working together in early 2021. Onomondo’s IoT stack and cellular network have given Lightbug the flexibility and control they were looking for, helping them focus on building better devices and adding value.
Onomondo's PAYG data pricing (with no active SIM fees) has been especially beneficial for Lightbug.
Typical IoT connectivity providers tie customers into data subscriptions from the point of activation. New devices sit on shelves accumulating costs and end-of-life devices need to be tracked and deactivated. This old-school telco mentality is holding IoT back.
With Onomondo, you know that whenever your device sends data, whenever it brings value, that's when you pay for data. PAYG data billing is resonating well with Lightbug's customers. The ability for manufacturers to make their products smart without committing to a subscription has opened up a wealth of new use cases.

Highlighted feature #1
Onomondo’s global network offers access to over 700 local networks in more than 180 countries. For Lightbug, whose GPS trackers should function anywhere in the world, that means complete assurance that all networks behave the same way and provide coverage no matter where their devices up.
The flexibility to create your own business model.
Highlighted feature #2
A key benefit of Onomondo for Lightbug is PAYG data pricing and costs scaling directly with revenue or data value. As a result, Lightbug customers spend less time juggling SIM subscriptions and more time solving problems.
