Information from Gemalto

Gemalto M2M is a reliable partner and valued by many vertical market customers for its award-winning modules which enable machines, equipment and vehicles to communicate over wireless networks, enabling enterprises to dramatically cut costs and increase productivity and efficiency.

gemalto_fc_story_engit_march-2014Gemalto M2M offers a broad portfolio of machine to machine (M2M) communication modules, machine identification modules (MIMs), device management platforms, a cloud-based application enablement platform for M2M applications and value added services designed to simplify development and integration and assure the security, reliability and long life of M2M solutions.

Delivering high-quality GSM/GPRS, HSPA+, CDMA and LTE modules and terminals, the company provides leading-edge support for integration, all over the world. Wireless modules are based on the 3GPP and 3GPP2 standard. This technology provides users with unlimited mobility due to worldwide coverage and the closely interwoven roaming network.

The respective data standards, GPRS, HSPA+ and LTE, offer reliable data connections with high data rates enabling data-centric applications. Gemalto’s modules are readily customised to suit unique needs by combining them with other innovative features such  as an embedded system based on Java, GPS, and a SIM access profile. Full type approval and local network operator certifications ensure all modules integrate easily into the GSM network. All automotive products comply with ISO TS16949 and VDA 6.2 quality benchmarks to deliver the high quality you have come to expect from Gemalto M2M. What’s more, Gemalto adheres to RoHS, REACH and WEEE environmental regulations for compliance with legislative directives.

Machine identification module (MIM)

The requirements of M2M applications present new challenges and, in many cases, a standard SIM card is simply not adapted for the job. That’s why Gemalto developed a new, specialised SIM platform called machine identification modules, MIM. Designed specifically for M2M applications, MIMs ensure that mobile operators can claim and retain a significant stake in this new market while providing new opportunities for M2M integrators, OEMs and customers.

Building upon Gemalto’s proven SIM technology, MIMs secure the identity of machines communicating  on  carrier networks and provide security authentication  and  ciphering information,  among  other features.

Gemalto MIMs are M2M-optimised to:

  • Survive extremes of vibration, temperature, and humidity
  • Endure a long life span (ex: ten years)
  • Occupy a small footprint (miniaturisation)
  • Withstand and integrate into industrial manufacturing processes

Gemalto MIMs meet the needs of mobile operators and their partners as well as customers in the M2M value chain. This unique platform, which is available in several form factors, is already enabling successful M2M deployments around the world and has been selected by many M2M hardware providers as their preferred solution for secure mobile connectivity.

SensorLogic application enablement

The application enablement platform allows organisations to rapidly build and deploy next-generation machine-to-machine applications that leverage the expanding world of connected devices. Solutions based on the platform let people and businesses harness real-time intelligence from connected devices for transforming into actionable insights that drive better business outcomes. The SensorLogic platform enables organisations to bring innovative M2M solutions to market faster and at a fraction of the cost of silo approaches. Customers use the Gemalto platform to create feature-rich, cloud-based applications that are secure, scalable and easy to manage.
