Sequans & Thales Ship First Built-in SIM Answer

Sequans (NYSE: SQNS), chief in mobile IoT chip know-how, and Thales, chief in digital safety, are partnering to convey to market a brand new built-in SIM (iSIM) answer supporting the newest GSMA SGP.31/.32 eSIM IoT specs on Sequans LTE-M/NB-IoT Monarch 2 chip. The brand new model of the GSMA customary leverages {industry} expertise with GSMA’s M2M and shopper eSIM architectures to convey a extra superior distant SIM provisioning structure that’s absolutely appropriate for any IoT machine. This provides service suppliers and OEMs/ODMs extra flexibility to handle manufacturing, deployment, and operations of large fleets of IoT gadgets with out heavy funding.

By porting the Thales secured OS with Distant SIM Provisioning performance into Sequans Monarch 2 chip with its ultra-high stage EAL5+ licensed safe enclave, Thales and Sequans are bringing to the market an optimized iSIM know-how for IoT gadgets that simplifies connectivity plan provisioning and administration. The joint answer might be eSA[1] licensed to ship the identical excessive requirements of cyber-protection and versatile anytime anyplace connectivity provided by the newest technology of embedded SIMs (eSIMs).

“Combining Thales’ industry-leading Distant SIM Provisioning know-how with Sequans’ extremely safe iSIM {hardware}, built-in on each our Monarch 2 LTE-M/NB-IoT and Calliope 2 Cat 1 chips, is without doubt one of the most essential new applied sciences to be made accessible to IoT companies for the reason that creation of IoT. It offers IoT service suppliers and machine makers the facility to obtain and alter community operator profiles over-the-air at will, without having to swap bodily SIM playing cards or handle many machine variants. This has been the imaginative and prescient of IoT for a very long time, and now that the imaginative and prescient is changing into actuality, we’re going to see large IoT explode.”

Georges Karam, Sequans CEO.

“Our partnership with Sequans permits the primary built-in eSIM answer supporting SGP.31 and SGP.32 GSMA requirements for shopper IoT, and it follows the discharge of Thales Adaptive Join, the primary industrial answer based mostly on these requirements. Thales stays on the forefront of innovation in distant SIM provisioning, absolutely supporting the deployment of large fleets of IoT gadgets that can leverage the present eSIM infrastructure.”

Guillaume Lafaix, Vice President at Thales Cell Connectivity Options.

The GSMA shopper IoT eSIM specs allow distant SIM provisioning on all kinds of gadgets. It simplifies logistics, machine set up, and connectivity value. It improves the resilience of IoT connectivity and facilitates mobility purposes. Lastly, it gives crucially essential enterprise continuity for the complete life cycle of IoT gadgets, decreasing threat when mobile networks change. With their new iSIM answer, Thales and Sequans goal to convey all these benefits to the mobile IoT market.

“This answer can be utilized to ship further safe providers resembling IoT Secure,” mentioned Guillaume Lafaix. “With it, we offer scalable safety by design to IoT service suppliers and machine makers.”

Sequans and Thales are presently working with alpha prospects, together with a number one power firm, and the total industrial answer might be accessible in 2024.
