Gemalto Demos Working IoT Security at Mobile World Congress


Gemalto, a digital security provider, and Bridge Alliance wowed the Mobile World Congress (MWC) crowd with their jointly developed solution for multi-country secure IoT deployment. The solution uses Gemalto's LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) subscription management solution and will be offered to Bridge Alliance’s partnership of 35 leading operators in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, with a combined reach of more than 750 million customers.

The demonstration, based on the GSMA interoperable standards, showed how hermetically sealed M2M and IoT devices such as connected cars and smart meters can securely connect to any Bridge Alliance Member Operator using remote ‘over-the-air’ provisioning.

“The rapid rise in urbanization, device proliferation, and demand for supply chain efficiency is poised to drive the need for IoT worldwide,” said Eileen Tan, CEO, Bridge Alliance. “We are trialing with Gemalto Embedded SIM solution as it simplifies the design, manufacturing and deployment process for IoT business, and in accordance with GSMA standards. This trial enables Bridge Alliance operators to demonstrate our ability to provide secure, scalable and reliable connectivity across Bridge Alliance footprint, while eliminating logistical challenges for OEMs and automakers.”

“Gemalto has been at the forefront of defining and adopting standards-based technology for years,” said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan, Gemalto. “With unified, global specifications now, subscription profiles can be downloaded on demand, paving the way for a greater number of connected M2M and IoT devices, and an accelerated growth of the industry.”
