IoT device connections fast, secure and scalable

G+D Mobile Security presented its AirOn eSIM platform for IoT device connections at MWC Barcelona. The GSMA-compliant eSIM management platform AirOn, Giesecke+Devrient (G+D) Mobile Security offers the market-leading solution for secure eSIM lifecycle management on mobile devices – regardless of the technology used, be it an eUICC (Embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card) or iUICC (Integrated Universal Integrated Circuit Card). The AirOn service also supports Deutsche Telekom’s new nuSIM technology for NB-IoT. nuSIM is an integrated SIM solution developed by Deutsche Telekom together with well-known manufacturers of IoT chips and modules. The functionality of a classic SIM are implemented directly in the chipset. G+D Mobile Security is Deutsche Telekom’s cooperation partner for digital security in this context. The new solution is designed to deliver maximum interoperability and is open for use by all interested companies such as network operators or OEMs. The aim of Deutsche Telekom and its partner network is to establish an innovative and expanded IoT ecosystem.
Through Deutsche Telekom’s partnership with G+D Mobile Security, nuSIM users, such as IoT device manufacturers, can directly benefit from the advantages of the AirOn service in their production lines: from the provision of subscriptions through connectivity integration to profile transfer to the individual IoT devices.

Our goal is to make data generation and provisioning as easy as possible for IoT device manufacturers, and our AirOn eSIM management is the ideal service for this. It is our ambition to cover all possible standards and technologies in a still very heterogeneous market. That’s why AirOn now also speaks the nuSIM language,

explains Carsten Ahrens, CEO of G+D Mobile Security.

The IoT market is very dynamic,

continues Ahrens,

and G+D Mobile Security is picking up on all current trends in order to remain at the forefront of providing adequate security solutions. This is why we also supply turnkey solutions for future technologies such as NB-IoT, which will also play a central role in nuSIM deployments.

NB-IoT technology, which enables the transmission of small amounts of data via narrowband communication, is generally regarded as the future standard in the IoT sector alongside 5G. NB-IoT offers clear advantages: from lower costs and lower energy consumption to better network coverage in buildings. With these features, NB-IoT will make a significant contribution to IoT proliferation and increased usage. Potential areas of application range from smart metering and smart buildings to smart cities. G+D Mobile Security offers complete solutions for IoT security in all of these areas.
G+D Mobile Security’s AirOn eSIM management service for nuSIM-based devices will be available for the nuSIM market launch announced by Deutsche Telekom in the second half of 2019.
