Gemalto unveils next generation M2M product range with Oracle Java ME8 capability

Gemalto, a provider of digital security solutions, has launched next generation machine-to-machine (M2M) product range with Oracle Java ME Embedded version 8 solutions capability.

The Oracle Java ME 8 solutions are based on chipsets from Qualcomm Technologies. They simplify and speed up application development to expand the growing Internet of Things.


The new products also offer support for the SensorLogic cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) platform. They find applications in a variety of fields ranging from medical devices, automobiles and smart meters to shipping containers, home appliances and alarm systems.

The Cinterion M2M end-to-end portfolio of solutions and services provides secure, wireless connectivity within an intelligent Java framework to support the increasing number of innovative IoT applications, Gemalto said.

Gemalto’s new Java enabled products join an existing portfolio of QTI-based modules that span the full range of cellular technologies, from CDMA to LTE. They enable device manufacturers to build solutions within a single design to target any industry segment and any network technology, ensuring long-lasting and future-proof applications.

The Java software runs on the onboard application processors of the Qualcomm Gobi chipsets, which can eliminate the expense of additional processing and memory chips, and thereby reduce the overall cost, complexity and size of the solutions, Gemalto said.

“We integrated Oracle Java onto our chipsets to enable the worldwide Java development community to imagine, develop and deploy creative, next generation, cost optimized cellular-based M2M applications,” said Nakul Duggal, vice president of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies.

The advantage of this solution is that multiple applications can run in parallel and a rich application environment allows the vast global Java developer community to reuse existing resources and speed up system integration.

The architecture simplifies over-the-air provisioning and updates, enabling remote M2M application management that keeps solutions running for more than 10 years.
