February 6, 2020 – STMicroelectronics has created a complete ecosystem for securely connecting Industrial IoT (IIoT) and automotive systems to cellular networks.
Offering access to networks and services worldwide, ST’s solution works to simplify connectivity for IIoT use cases such as remote condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, as well as connected-driving services such as infotainment, vehicle diagnostics, and emergency assistance.
ST provides secure hardware and software: a set of industrial and automotive-qualified embedded SIMs (eSIMs), ready to work with industry-standard GSMA or proprietary bootstrap profiles. Partners Arkessa, Arm and Truphone, with millions of machine-to-machine (M2M) device deployments and eSIM activations, provide and operate device-onboarding and service-provisioning platforms.
The provisioning services enable IoT devices containing the eSIMs to connect automatically to cellular networks. Each of ST’s appointed partner/operators can access hundreds of cellular networks of all types including 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE CAT-M (low-power wide-area connectivity), and NB-IoT (narrowband IoT), in large numbers of territories worldwide.
ST manufactures and personalizes all eSIMs securely at GSMA SAS-UP (Security Accreditation Scheme UICC Production) accredited sites in Europe and Southeast Asia.
