Gemalto and KORE enable global connectivity and M2M applications with cloud-based service platform

Thursday 1 Aug 2013 | Member Press Release |

Amsterdam, August 1, 2013 – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world
leader in digital security, and KORE Telematics, a leading wireless
connectivity provider for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, joined forces
to offer global M2M application enablement services with the Cinterion®
solution. The cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) platform transforms
real-time data from equipment and device sensors into actionable
intelligence that improves operational efficiency and optimizes costs for
better business outcomes.

KORE works with global tier-one mobile operators to optimize “the network
last mile” for affordable M2M solutions and provide specialized services
that accelerate adoption of M2M technology. With Gemalto’s device-agnostic
cloud platform, KORE customers now have a flexible and scalable solution to
mobilize enterprise operations and manage a growing range of M2M
applications including tracking and tracing, alarm and security systems, and
asset management.

For example, to manage cold chain logistics for climate sensitive products
including pharmaceuticals and food, the Gemalto solution receives disparate
data from sensors embedded throughout the supply chain in shipping
containers, truck trailers and warehouses. A powerful, cloud-based Java™
application environment translates data bits into standardized content that
describes heat, humidity, shock, vibration or tilt. It is combined with
contextual information such as miles to destination and then integrated
seamlessly into the back-end systems. Logistics managers can check the
status and location of cargo anytime via laptop, computer or smartphone with
real time alerts sent via email or text messages when critical thresholds
are reached. This allows supervisors and dispatchers to respond immediately
and make adjustments that preserve cargo and improve profits.

“With the enhanced cloud platform and Gemalto’s unrivaled expertise in
delivering secure global managed services, our customers have a
best-in-class solution to manage M2M applications for any industry,” said
Alex Brisbourne, President and COO of KORE. “The easy-to-use platform
ensures complete flexibility for our customers now and in the future also
allowing smaller adopters to benefit from M2M technology.”

“We are committed to advancing the possibilities of the ever-evolving
‘Internet of Things,’” said Benoît Jouffrey, Vice President of M2M at
Gemalto. “The combination of our rapid application deployment capabilities
with KORE’s PRISMPro connectivity management system offers enterprise and
industrial clients an easier way to do business and transform data. The
integration of KORE with our cloud-platform accelerates the growing range of
advanced M2M services for wireless providers alike.”

platforms. For more information on Cold Chain logistics and our M2M
