NTT Docomo has engaged Gemalto to enable connectivity for IoT applications.

Gemalto said its Cinterion Machine Identification Module (MIM) complies with industry standards and was first to meet the high requirements of the Japanese market.

The IoT applications will be designed to enable Japanese businesses to collect real-time information on mission-critical systems, better manage their networks and logistics and remotely perform intelligent operations.

Gemalto offers ruggedized MIM that can sustain extreme environments of humidity, corrosion, vibration, and temperatures from -45 to 105 degrees Celsius. It also leverages Gemalto's operating system to offer optimized memory management, data retention and one million erase/write cycles.

"We have a long standing relationship with NTT Docomo, which includes Japan's first LTE wireless connectivity in 2010, and more recently, the NFC deployment," said Michael Au, president for South Asia and Japan at Gemalto.

"With our advanced MIMs now, NTT Docomo will be able to leverage their LTE networks to further expand their portfolio to other M2M applications in industrial and automotive sectors,” said Au.

Japan’s IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication market is estimated to grow from $11.34 billion in 2014 to $41.61 billion by 2019 due to increasing demand for smart infrastructure and fully managed network appliances.
