Thales recently announced its latest innovative IoT technology that could simplify the firm’s digitalized transformation. For almost two decades, Thales clients including a broader range of industries trust Thales’ IoT Solutions to seamlessly connect and secure their devices.
Unveiling of the ELS62 series that fits Thales’ 360° approach offers cost-effective solutions to simplify design, streamline development and accelerate time-to-market for IoT solutions.
The IoT industry requires both highly stable connectivity and devices secured by design to unleash its full potential and win users’ trust. That’s how Thales came up with a single antenna solution – compliant with LTE-Cat.1bis standard – to offer flexible connectivity options and robust cyber security to IoT device manufacturers.
According to Thales interim reports, its optimized size enables to address smaller but still sensitive objects, such as medical wearable’s, smart meters, home alarm systems, or any other devices used in critical use cases. As a matter of fact, the ELS62 module incorporates security features to safeguard both the device and data, by guaranteeing robustness against cyberattacks, with better robust device authentication and data encryption.
Additionally, device management is updated thanks to Thales’ leading expertise in remote device activation and connectivity management. Indeed, Thales’ 2G connectivity fall-back service maximizes network reachability and improves users’ quality of service.
This means savings, not just at installation, but also over the device’s lifecycle as it removes the need for physical servicing (leading to a reduced total cost of ownership).
Piotr Blaszczyk, Member of the Management Board – Director for Research, Development and Technical Support EBS Sp. z o. o stated: “For EBS, iron-clad security is at the core of our business. As a manufacturer of smart security systems, we have over 3 million devices in the field. Our customers trust EBS to be at the forefront of security technology at all times – and to keep them- and their property- protected. This is a responsibility that we take incredibly seriously, also when choosing our suppliers.”
Mr. Blaszczyk added: “With the Cinterion® ELS62, we are able to rely on Thales’ extensive security expertise and have a connectivity module that is state-of-the-art, that allows us to explore new technologies while never leaving any doubt about data protection.”
Francis D’Souza, Head of IoT Strategy and Product Line Management at Thales stated: “Security has always been part of Thales’ DNA. Our new ELS62 comes with our essential security features implemented directly on the module, like trusted device identity for safe cloud interworking and deep penetration testing against security threats. The new Thales Cinterion ELS62 Cat.1 bis will support device makers’ ambitions and help our customers to develop innovative IoT services.”
He also added: “Thales’ unique expertise in developing reliable compact connectivity solution combined with a security-by-design approach empowers our customers to build a future we can all trust.”
