Gemalto launches next generation M2M product range adding Oracle Java ME8 solutions capability and based on chipsets from Qualcomm Technologies
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
CES (News - Alert) -�Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in
digital security, today announced the addition of next generation Oracle
Java™ ME Embedded version 8 solutions based on Qualcomm (News - Alert) Technologies,
Inc. (QTI) chipsets to its�Cinterion®
portfolio of cellular modules and devices. With support for Java and
for the SensorLogic cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) platform,
the new products enable Gemalto (News - Alert) to launch next generation embedded
solutions and services that simplify Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology
and speed up application development to expand the growing Internet of
Things (IoT). The new products1 will target applications from
medical devices, automobiles and smart meters to shipping containers,
home appliances and alarm systems.
The�Cinterion® M2M end-to-end portfolio of solutions and
services provides secure, wireless connectivity within an intelligent
Java framework to support the increasing number of innovative IoT
applications. Gemalto's new Java enabled products join an existing
portfolio of QTI-based modules that span the full range of cellular
technologies, from CDMA to LTE (News - Alert). This flexibility enables device
manufacturers to build solutions within a single design to target any
industry segment and any network technology, ensuring long-lasting and
future-proof applications. The Java software runs on the onboard
application processors of the Qualcomm Gobi™ chipsets, which can
eliminate the expense of additional processing and memory chips, and
thereby reduce the overall cost, complexity and size of the solutions.
"We integrated Oracle Java onto our chipsets to enable the worldwide
Java development community to imagin, develop and deploy creative, next
generation, cost optimized cellular-based M2M applications," said
Nakul Duggal, Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm
Technologies, Inc. "Together with Gemalto, we share a vision and
common goal to provide the building blocks to enable the Internet of
Everything, and we are excited about these new additions to their
Cinterion module portfolio."
"Qualcomm Technologies is a leader in providing cellular technologies
to M2M customers around the world, so it was a natural step to support
Java on our Qualcomm Technologies portfolio," said Andreas Haegele,
head of the Cinterion M2M product portfolio at Gemalto. "Our
family of powerful M2M products that support Java has been well received
by customers. Multiple applications can run in parallel and a rich
application environment allows the vast global Java developer community
to reuse existing resources and speed up system integration. The
architecture simplifies over-the-air provisioning and updates, enabling
remote M2M application management that keeps solutions running for more
than 10 years.�"
