Digital security provider, Gemalto, recently announced that Japanese mobile operator NTT Docomo, has chosen to deploy its Cinterion Machine Identification Module (MIM) to enable connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
These IoT applications will enable Japanese businesses to collect real-time information on mission-critical systems, better manage their networks and logistics, as well as remotely perform intelligent operations for increased efficiency and reliability.
According to Gemalto, its MIM solution complies with the most stringent industry standards and was also the first to meet the high quality requirements of the Japanese market. It also offers the highest quality of ruggedized MIM(2) that can sustain extreme environments of humidity, corrosion, vibration, and temperatures from -45 to 105 degrees Celsius.
In addition, it also leverages Gemalto's operating system to offer optimised memory management, data retention and one million erase/write cycles, which extend the lifespan of the device and prevent service disruptions.
"We have a long-standing relationship with NTT Docomo, which includes Japan's first (LTE) wireless connectivity in 2010, and more recently, the NFC deployment," said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. "With our advanced MIMs now, NTT Docomo will be able to leverage their LTE networks to further expand their portfolio to other M2M applications in industrial and automotive sectors."
