Gemalto and KORE Enable Global Connectivity and M2M Applications with Cloud-based Service Platform
Amsterdam, August 1, 2013 – Gemalto 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.
