News: Single specification reduces fragmentation and helps industry take advantage of growing market.
Indosat, Tele2 and Telefónica | Vivo have launched commercial solutions based on the GSMA Embedded SIM Specification for the remote over-the-air provisioning of M2M devices.
The GSMA said the mobile operators’ solutions could be used in several applications including smart meters or connected cars.
It said the specification is now backed by 23 mobile operators, including members of the Global M2M Association and the M2M World Alliance.
As Machina Research estimates the IoT market to be worth $1.1 trillion by 2020, GSMA said the adoption of a single, common and interoperable specification will reduce fragmentation and help the industry to take advantage of this growing market.
GSMA Intelligence has found that nearly 75% of global M2M connections are now serviced by mobile operators that are deploying or are committed to the GSMA solution.
