[Colombes, February 26, 2018] - Actility, industry leader in Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks, and IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, unite forces to demonstrate a unique capability delivering seamless and secure device activation, connectivity and lifecycle management for both LoRaWAN and LTE-based IoT.
To achieve its full potential, IoT requires flexible deployment and seamless connectivity between multiple different networks. Actility’s roaming aggregation of LoRaWAN networks combined with IDEMIA’s M-Trust Secure Services platform, removes the complexities of connecting IoT devices and allows frictionless connectivity management. The combination of solutions from Actility and IDEMIA allows Mobile Network Operators, IoT device manufacturers, IoT service providers and solution vendors to conveniently activate and secure devices and seamlessly move from one IoT network to another, whilst ensuring the security between the device and the selected network.
This solution combines Actility’s ThingPark IoT connectivity platform for LPWANs with both IDEMIA’s M-Trust Secure Services platform for securing LTE and LoRaWAN credentials and communication, and IDEMIA’s M-Connect, the industry leading subscription management platform to manage eSIM credentials.
Yves Portalier, Executive Vice-President for Connected objects activities at IDEMIA declares: “We want to simplify the production, supply chain and customer experience of globally deployed devices and bring always-on connectivity for both LoRaWAN and LTE IoT devices. This partnership helps solve all the major logistics pain points of OEMs looking at these two key wireless IoT technologies.”
Olivier Hersent, CEO of Actility, adds: “By bringing better performance, improved security and seamless scaling to managing thousands and ultimately millions of devices across rapidly-growing IoT networks, this partnership between IDEMIA and our company will accelerate the digital transformation of businesses and industries whilst providing unmatched performance and flexibility.”
