Ericsson and Gemalto Come Together to Offer eUICC Based Integrated M2M Solutions

By Frank Griffin February 12, 2013

The ability of machines to communicate with each other has opened a very large industry, and it has introduced a more comprehensive approach to customer care. Whether it is healthcare, automotive, retail services, smart energy or any of the industries currently using machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, this new technology improves business productivity and customer service. The partnership between Ericsson and Gemalto will offer a M2M solution based on embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC) subscription management technology.

This new partnership will give operators the ability to meet enterprise requirement on management regarding the life cycle of M2Ms and business process integration. They are able to achieve this by using the Ericsson Device Connection Platform integrated with the Gemalto Subscription Management Platform.

M2M communications depend on devices that have to interact with each other using mobile networks, the Internet, Wi-Fi or other communications technology, while at the same time transmitting different sets of data to different sources. This creates challenges for the operators who are dealing with a great number of devices that are creating large amounts of data constantly for many years for each individual device.

The M2M device has to be manufactured taking into account many of the variables the device has to go through. This includes the different types of networks in other countries, the pace soldering of UICC on the devices during manufacturing and the different types of changes it may face during its lifecycle regarding connectivity. A subscription management has to be flexible and open enough to take these variables into consideration.

To provide a solution for these problems, the two companies have come up with a Dynamic Device Subscription Management. It provides an integrated solution that reduces complexity of M2M deployment for mobile network operators with investment scalability. Once it is in place, it manages the devices to be monitored without having to change the eUICC for the entire lifecycle of the device.

With this kind of reliability, operators will get a M2M connectivity solution that is integrated and streamlined.

Gemalto is a company with extensive digital security experience with 10,000 employees in 74 offices and 14 R&D centers in 43 countries around the world. Along with the M2M applications it provides secure platforms for users around the world with mobile devices who want to shop, bank and communicate without any worries. In choosing Gemalto, Ericsson has a partner with strong security credentials for the protection of the data they will be gathering round the clock for their customers.
