Cinterion (News - Alert) the machine-to-machine business segment of Gemalto launched EHS5- an ultra-compact, high-speed M2M communication module that enables secure wireless connectivity for industrial applications.


According to officials, the new Cinterion solution delivers a complete client Java runtime that suits microcontrollers and other resource-constrained devices. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) will benefit greatly from the flexible platform, which reduces the time to market and delivery of advanced M2M technology.

The Gemalto (News - Alert) Cinterion EHS5 module incorporates miniaturized, scalable M2M technology similar to other Cinterion 2G products. This solution enables network migration within a single design and is suitable for various applications.

The Java-based application environment lets the Java developer community leverage the speed and simplicity of M2M solution design and integration.

Its lean system architecture allows the software to run directly on the Cinterion module; additional co-processors and memory chips are not required resulting in simplification of applications.

In addition, the M2M communication module’s Java Virtual Machine (JVM) serves as a hub that connects application software with security elements and end-user computer systems. This simplifies integration and deployment while enabling over-the-air (OTA) provisioning and remote updates of data and applications as needed.

“There are more than 850 million computers and billions of devices and machines currently running Java technologies, many of which being secure objects from Gemalto” said Norbert Muhrer (News - Alert), SVP of Gemalto Cinterion, M2M segment.

“The Cinterion Java modules are a dynamic link at the center of industry-specific M2M applications. They connect Java-based machines, devices and sensors at the edge of an enterprise to the backend Enterprise Resource Planning systems, sending data where it is needed most for successful and dependable business operations. Edge-to-Enterprise, or E2E, connectivity is clearly the future of M2M,” Muhrer added.

In related news, PrivatBank, a commercial bank in Ukraine, has selected Gemalto, a source of digital security solutions, to provide Optelio contactless stickers for commercial mobile payment deployment. Gemalto develops secure embedded software and products, and its platforms and services manage the confidential data they contain and the services they enable.
