#1 Network of Things






Milan, May 23 2017 – Things Mobile is a pure stroke of genius that is rooted in the decade-long experience of its founder in international roaming and in the TLC market. Things Mobile is the Global Mobile Operator specialized in the Internet of Things, a name that has been used for some years now to define the network of equipment and devices other than computers that are connected to the Internet.
The inventor of the innovative Things Mobile SIM card is the businessman Manuel Zanella(40 years old), already founder and CEO of Zeromobile, the first low cost roaming Mobile Operator (, and founder and CEO of ChatSim, the SIM card designed to chat free of charge and without limits with WhatsApp and other Instant Messaging Apps (
Zeromobile, the majority shareholder, is not alone in the Things Mobile project. The other partners in this project are the investment company Angelsim Sarl, already an investor in ChatSim, and Juan de la Coba, ChatSim co-founder.
Things Mobile is an evolution of Zeromobile. While ChatSim was an evolution of Zeromobile in voice, chat and text messaging, Things Mobile is the evolution in field of data exchange.Manuel Zanella has now tapped the ChatSim experience for this new product.
Things Mobile was created with a crucial goal in mind: upgrading the technology of objects connected to the Internet making it more user-friendly, faster and more convenient,” explains the CEO of Things Mobile. “Since most devices exchange very few kilobytes, our rate guarantees very low connection costs and no management fees for devices,stresses Manuel Zanella.“For quite a while I had been receiving requests from our customers to develop a SIM card to connect IoT devices in a more effective and affordable manner. There’s a lot of confusion on the market,” notes Zanella. “The offering of large mobile telephony operators is not clear or flexible at all and the fixed costs are very expensive. Building on our decade-long experience in the TLC market, after connecting hundreds of thousands of people all over the world with Zeromobile and ChatSim, our target now is to connect millions of IoT devices all over the world thanks to Things Mobile, with an unbelievable permanent roaming rate!”
The rate plus the unique technical features of the SIM card makes Things Mobile the most affordable, competitive and reliable IoT operator on global markets. In industry, the spreading of the IoT and of the Industrial IoT will make it possible to reorganize and radically overhaul production integrating design, labor organization, product control, marketing, sales, customer relations and maintenance.
“According to a recent Cisco survey, at present 99% of people and things in the world are not connected to the Web, nor are they connected to one another,” explains Manuel Zanella. “This is a huge investment opportunity for manufacturers and operators alike. Exploiting the continuous advances made by means of communication and technologies used to connect to the Internet will lead to the greatest digital revolution ever experienced.”
There are billions of objects now connected around the world with this new technology. The impact will be felt in new fields of business and in the economy in general. The most important market survey companies believe that there will be over 25 billion IoT devices by 2020.
