AMSTERDAM, Oct 4, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has been recognized by Juniper Research, the respected industry analyst, as a key player in the global M2M sector. This leadership position is based on Gemalto's advanced capabilities and product offering for the industrial and consumer IoT markets, where Juniper predicts strong growth for eSIMs and remote subscription management platforms. Rising demand offers OEMs a major opportunity to take advantage of the eSIM's space-saving design and support for seamless connectivity, and mobile network operators an additional source of revenue, using their experience of remote management of traditional SIMs as well as the MIM(TM) Machine-Identification-Module that is developing as the preferred solution for enabling secure cellular M2M connections.
In contrast to a traditional SIM, an eSIM is built into a device at the manufacturing stage, ready for immediate connection when it is deployed or activated. Gemalto already offers a range of eSIMs that are fully compliant with the latest GSMA specifications, and a Remote Subscription Management solution that delivers automatic, on-demand connectivity for devices.
To date the use of traditional SIMs has been dominant in the M2M and consumer electronic domains. However, Juniper predicts that the adoption and promotion of the new GSMA eSIM standard will stimulate strong growth in both sectors. As a result, there will be significant commercial opportunities for mobile network operators to offer new connectivity services across a wide array of vertical markets. This trend will impact M2M devices as well as smartphones, tablets and wearables.
"In the report, we wish to highlight Gemalto's advanced eSIM offer and remote provisioning capability," said Sam Barker, Research Analyst at Juniper Research. "Gemalto's end-to-end IoT security is also recognized as addressing widespread concerns over the vulnerability of the IoT to hacking attacks."
"Around the world, Gemalto is already working with mobile operators, OEMs and service providers to capitalize on the opportunities brought by mobile connectivity, which the GSMA values at an estimated $3 trillion," said Benoit Jouffrey, Vice President for On-Demand Connectivity at Gemalto. "Gemalto offers mobile operators and OEMs the ability to launch IoT devices and applications that are instantly connected, reliable over an extended working life, and protected by proven data encryption and authentication techniques."
