Vodafone and Sprint endorse Arm IoT technology
Cambridge UK technology world leader Arm received a double endorsement of it’s global edge in the Internet Things when Vodafone and Sprint Corporation unveiled key deals at MWC Americas.
Both businesses said at the Los Angeles expo that they would be leveraging Arm’s IoT solutions.
Vodafone says it will be collaborating with Arm on its integrated SIM (iSIM) technology. This will be critical in accelerating the market development of cellular IoT by delivering scalable, commercially viable solutions and significantly reducing the cost of connected IoT devices.
Paul Williamson, vice-president and general manager in the IoT Device IP Line of Business at Arm said: “Arm has a vision of a trillion connected devices by 2035 and each of these devices will need a secure identity, enabling stakeholders to establish trust.
“In our shift to a world of billions of connected devices, many of these will benefit from cellular connectivity and iSIM makes it possible to deploy these effectively and at scale, while maintaining strong security.
“Vodafone’s support to this initiative is an important step in the evolution of cellular connectivity.”
Sprint’s Curiosity IoT Platform will leverage Arm’s iSIM technology, Platform Security Architecture (PSA) and Arm Pelion IoT Platform to deliver unmatched device-to-data security, as well as connectivity, device and data management.
Charlene Marini, vice-president of ISG Strategy at Arm participated in a panel discussion with Sprint and other ecosystem partners.
Hima Mukkamala, senior vice-president and general manager at Arm, commented: “IoT provides a tremendous opportunity for organisations to obtain actionable insights from their devices and data, but require strong company integrations to manage the vast industry fragmentation and security challenges.
“We are working with Sprint from device-to-data and bringing the IoT security and business-critical services that are vital for unlocking value from IoT.”
