“Yet cybersecurity, seamless integration, and reliable, robust connectivity and global reach continue to remain key barriers to global enterprise adoption. By joining forces with Micron to reimagine edge connectivity and security, we will create a new paradigm that will rapidly accelerate and simplify IoT deployment,” he said.
Industry projections had forecasted 50 billion IoT device deployments by 2020, but the reality has fallen short with only around 9 billion IoT devices deployed. This is a result of the challenges with cellular-enabled connectivity and cybersecurity in managing physical SIM cards and fixed contracts per operator per country, says Tata. ABI Research predicts only 420 million cellular-connected IoT devices will roll out in 2021, just a fraction of total IoT deployments.
Rather than using a physical SIM card to verify mobile identity, Authenta KMS provides device identities for the virtual SIM in the cloud, enabling secure, zero-touch device registration and onboarding to IoT services.
The new eSIM provides IoT devices with secure borderless connectivity via a cellular network. This is aimed at the industrial, infrastructure, automotive, aviation, and transport and logistics sectors that need global connectivity for portable devices even in remote locations.
The cloud-based eSIM for IoT devices is slated to begin shipping in the first half of 2021.
