Giesecke+Devrient Expands IoT Commitments, Joins the IoT M2M Council


Let’s talk about a team driving impactful growth within the IoT ecosystem:

Giesecke+Devrient (or G+D, for shorthand’s sake).

G+D builds customized security technology solutions that can be divvied up into three segments – digital security, financial platforms, and currency technology. A trusted partner of some of the most demanding global institutions, G+D specializes in shaping and securing real trust in the digital age.

Thus, news that G+D has officially joined the prestigious IoT M2M Council (IMC) gels perfectly with the company’s M.O.

But what is the IMC?

For those unfamiliar, the IMC is the largest group dedicated to the global IoT + M2M sector and is comprised of over 25,000 IoT Adopter Members across four continents. Said IMC IoT Adopter Members actively deploy IoT technologies at organizations ranging from FedEx and Hyundai to Siemens Medical, the U.S. Department of Defense and many others. Having brought together large-scale IoT innovators (i.e. plenty of connectivity-centric providers, systems integrators, network operators, equipment manufacturers and chipware makers in this mix), the IMC supports industry efforts to responsibly increase IoT deployment volumes while simultaneously staying apprised of (and meeting) evolving global needs.

That’s G+D’s intro to the IMC gels so well.

According to the official press release, G+D is set to participate in IMC programs to “share its experience as one of the world's largest producers of SIM technology, including know-how in eSIM technology, global connectivity, and vertical-market solutions for remote devices.”

Sam Colley, Digital Connectivity Portfolio Strategist at G+D and current IMC Chairman, conveyed great excitement about this development for IoT.

“G+D has been innovating for over 170 years. Our expansion into the IoT sector beyond eSIMs is the ideal way to deliver additional value,” Colley stated. “In further expanding G+D’s profile in IoT, which includes the introduction of our AirOn360 eSIM platform and our vertical track-and-trace offerings, increasing our commitments through the IMC is our next best step. It is a great platform to meet potential customers, as well as an important space for collaborating with other technology providers. We think it's imperative that G+D introduces and shares best practices with all parts of the ecosystem, and the IMC is unique in admirably representing all the layers of the IoT stack worldwide.”
