Unique end-to-end M2M offering simplifies value chain, secures and enables the
Internet of Things
BARCELONA, Spain--(Business Wire)--
Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, will
present its expanded portfolio of Cinterion Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions
at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona. Delivering a unique combination of
end-to-end technology, the comprehensive offering includes a range of advanced
M2M wireless modules enabling reliable communications, ruggedized Machine
Identification ModulesTM (MIMs) for secure connectivity to mobile networks,
flexible subscription management services, and an enhanced cloud-based platform
for application enablement to connect assets and enterprises. This unique full
spectrum offering provides a single source for M2M customers while reducing
complexity in the ecosystem and simplifying technology integration for any
vertical market application whether in automotive, healthcare, payment, tracking
or tracing, amongst others.
Gemalto`s comprehensive M2M offerings transform machines and equipments into
manageable assets, allowing companies worldwide to create new business
opportunities while improving efficiency and productivity. For instance, auto
makers use automotive grade Cinterion MIMs to power onboard safety systems such
as eCall, which automatically calls for help in the case of a road incident.
Utilities companies integrate Cinterion communication modules for secure smart
metering to improve energy conservation. Enterprises and M2M solution developers
use the cloud-based Cinterion SensorLogic platform to make informed decisions
based on data transmitted from connected devices for a wide assortment of
solutions such as efficient cold chain logistics or deployment of
standards-based healthcare services. Gemalto`s cloud-based service platform
provides several improved features including application programming interfaces,
pre-integration with edge devices plus data management and visualization tools
that allow solution developers to build end-to-end applications on a solid
foundation and focus on their core competencies. An open JavaTM platform
connects distinct elements of the entire M2M portfolio while allowing customers
to scale technology and incorporate additional capabilities when needed.
"We believe the expanded Gemalto M2M offer, combining industry-leading
technologies from their acquisitions of Cinterion and SensorLogic, strengthens
the company`s position in the marketplace and presents a consistent offering
that clearly differentiates Gemalto in the M2M industry" said Robin
Duke-Woolley, CEO of leading M2M analyst firm Beecham Research. "Our recent
research on M2M solution requirements identified end-to-end solution security,
IT integration and reducing complexity of the value chain as the top three
priorities for M2M solution providers. Gemalto is clearly addressing all three
"Consolidating modules, MIMs and services into a single comprehensive solution
offering combines the strength of three industry-leading product lines and
reinforces Gemalto`s unmatched ability to support customers across the complete
M2M value chain," said Norbert Muhrer, Senior Vice President of Cinterion M2M at
Gemalto. "An intelligent migration strategy and wide-ranging products used
together or independently, gives OEMs, M2M solution developers and mobile
network operators future-proof technology with flexibility to evolve as business
