Oberthur Technologies, a global provider of embedded security software, announced its collaboration with Etisalat Misr, to launch M2M and IoT services. Relying on Oberthur Technologies M-Sense solution, a software platform enabling fast service deployment, Etisalat Misr will enable its enterprise customers to launch M2M and IoT services.
The partnership is an outcome of the frame agreement signed between Oberthur Technologies and Etisalat Group, Abu Dhabi in July 2015. The project aims to deliver a tailored and modular solution enabling selected local ecosystem partners to leverage the platform’s readymade components and use existing application frameworks. These components include sensor data visualisation, reporting, business rules and off-the-shelf applications in order to further build customised applications.
Oberthur Technologies reactivity to develop and propose a scalable commercial configuration has been a critical element in Etisalat’s decision. The full platform serving the initial priority projects and selected IoT services will be available in a short timeframe.
Etisalat Misr has selected Oberthur Technologies M-Sense platform, powered by Cumulocity, the leading software provider of IoT application enablement and device management, for its rich set of horizontal capabilities for both application enablement and device management. M-Sense allows easy and fast device integration over any network.
It secures collection, visualisation and real-time management of various IoT data from any M2M device and controls remotely connected enterprise assets in real time. Oberthur Technologies M-Sense solution will enable Etisalat to accelerate the deployment of vertical applications, whether they are for smart cities, universities or enterprises operating in the transport, oil and energy or real estate sectors.
“Oberthur Technologies has been a long-term partner for Etisalat, already supplying Etisalat with both SIM cards and secure mission-critical software platforms. Our IoT solutions will dramatically improve energy efficiency, security, logistics, education and many other aspects of everyday things,” said Khaled Rabie CBO at Etisalat Misr.
“We are extremely happy to partner with Etisalat Misr to have a rich portfolio of M2M and IoT applications and services, and increase the benefits for their Enterprise customers. As Oberthur Technologies M-Sense is an open and standardised platform, Etisalat customers will get access to a wide range of tools and software components and they will be able to quickly develop and launch a large portfolio of innovative M2M and IoT applications” said Arnaud de La Chapelle, Oberthur Technologies RMEA President.
