b-things are proud to join with Summa Networks in an innovation partnership creating new propositions for MVNO and MVNE for the IoT and traditional voice markets.

Our platform, known as Abacus, supports event-based billing and reduces time to profit for IoT applications encouraging investment. The platform takes an API first approach so integrates easily with legacy infrastructure.
