Digital security solutions provider Gemalto, in partnership with Hirschmann Solutions, is demonstrating Remote Subscription Management of advanced M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The combined solution follows the ‘Embedded SIM2’ specification published by the GSMA and gives enterprises the flexibility when selecting their preferred network carrier once the application is being deployed in local markets, avoiding the need to pre-determine network parameters during manufacturing.
The combination of Gemalto’s remote service provisioning along with the multi-mode M2M module delivers secure global connectivity while eliminating the need for multiple hardware designs for different regions and countries, Gemalto said.
The solution addresses the challenge for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), global enterprises, and mobile businesses that do not restrict the final locations where their M2M products will be deployed.
The demo at CES leverages Hirschmann Solutions’ global asset tracking and tracing solution with Gemalto’s Cinterion range of Machine Identification Module (MIM) and a unique multi-mode M2M module enabling reliable, high-speed connectivity on various networks.
The solution can be installed on shipping containers, on trailers, on pallets and with a variety of other mobile assets, the solution automatically sends GPS location information, inventory updates and asset data to service centers all over the world.
