Crawley technology firm in Internet of Things breakthrough

Posted by on 10 Feb 2016

Crawley-headquartered Spirent Communications has announced a partnership with global SIM card provider Oasis Smart SIM that marks both company’s first foray into the Internet of Things (IoT) arena.

The software tie-up will see Spirent and Oasis provide a two-click software solution that original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can embed in their products for SIM-free cellular activation.

With 6.4bn IoT connected devices forecast by the end of 2016, both companies hope the new technology will remove technical barriers and pave the way for even more connected devices like cameras and smart vehicles.

Commenting on the partnership, Dennis Juul Poulsen, general manager of Spirent’s IoT Connectivity and Subscription Management business, said: “Spirent and Oasis have teamed up to help manufacturers build better and smarter products for the connected world."

“Be it a connected truck or a pair of smart running shoes, OEMs in whatever vertical market now have a solution that provides customers with seamless instant connectivity and the freedom to choose whatever cellular service provider they wish.“

Olivier Leroux, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore-headquartered Oasis Smart SIM, added: "Spirent’s unique automatic access point name (APN) setup and remote subscription management solution with Oasis’ embedded smart USIM functionality is a game changer in connected products and devices.

“OEM vendors now have a leaner way to manufacture, distribute and maintain connected products compared to solutions centered on the traditional SIM.“

The firm’s new product is due to be unveiled on 22 February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
