Vincent Korstanje, CEO at Kigen said: “Enabling a new model of partnerships for simpler and wider adoption of secure, cellular IoT has been a driver for Kigen that led the vision for the iSIM. This collaboration with Truphone and Sony will simplify and accelerate the journey for OEMs and enterprises for new battery-efficient devices with straightforward, global out-of-the-box connectivity.”

The chipsets currently connect millions of devices, including wearables, vehicle telematics, logistic trackers, home appliances, consumer electronics, and smart utility meters using the integrated SIM technology hardware.

This connectivity is securely integrated into Sony’s Altair chipsets and the low footprint of Kigen’s highly portable iSIM OS software.

This new solution creates a new paradigm for connecting IoT devices at scale with a completely pre-integrated, secure connectivity solution.

Truphone has been recognized as a leading provider of end-to-end cellular IoT solutions with a platform that works at the highest levels of digitization.

The first chipsets to obtain Truphone’s connectivity solution are Sony’s Altair CAT-M/NB ALT1250 and NB-only ALT1255 cellular IoT chipsets, which are the smallest and most feature-rich solutions in the industry.

Truphone’s unique multi-IMSI SIM provides Sony Altair’s cellular IoT chipsets with access to Truphone’s growing global footprint for low power wireless access.
