CLX Drives IoT Connectivity with Advent Controls


Advent Controls’ fire and security communication platform extends CLX’s IoT Connectivity solution in aid to first responders.

Global CPaaS provider CLX communications has teamed up with Advent Controls to enhance IoT connectivity within the fire and security industries.

The partnership supports both industries by creating affordable, reliable, and connected alarm and detection systems. These systems won’t rely on pre-paid consumer SIM cards or expensive fixed lines.

Advent Controls, a UK global system for mobile communications (GSM) security equipment manufacturer, has collaborated with CLX since early 2018. Advent uses CLX’s IoT SIM to add connectivity to its GSM Dialler and Intercom offerings. As ISDN and PSTN networks become obsolete, Advent and CLX have future proofed installations by incorporating SIM for more reliable, less expensive, and easily portable connectivity.
