Thales IoT SAFE solution will provide cloud connectivity for new IoT services in Canada

Thales technology is at the heart of a new IoT project in Canada, enabling instant, secure, and scalable cloud connectivity for a SIM/eSIM-based IoT. As part of this collaboration with TELUS, the Canadian wireless network operator, and the Canadian Internet Registry Authority (CIRA), the project’s certification partner, Thales is providing SIM cards, an Internet of Things server, and all GSMA IoT SAFE compliant specifications. Thales IoT SAFE provides an interoperable framework for the rapid deployment of IoT applications. It is provided in a plug-and-play SaaS mode, and is easily integrated. It creates a scalable and automatic data security environment for SIM-equipped devices, with remote management functions. TELUS continues to expand into the Internet of Things with hardware across Canada, providing businesses with an innovative platform that avoids costly and time-consuming site visits. The city, for example, can use the platform to manage all the parking meters connected to it. The concept will also serve as the basis for other commercial IoT offerings, in areas such as healthcare or energy, where fleets of connected devices manage data that needs protection.

“Combining secure SIM technology with IoT SAFE enables easy deployment for stakeholders. It also avoids integration difficulties for mobile operators, compliance issues for device manufacturers and service providers, and enables direct connection via Thales IoT server to cloud service providers. Greater value as IoT SAFE is already compatible with the future 5G framework, which will support mass deployments in the IoT space.” Guillaume Lafaix, Vice President of Mobile Communications Solutions, Thales “The secure items we manage, such as SIM cards and eSIMs, are now the ‘trusted foundation’ for security in a growing IoT ecosystem. With the support of Thales and ACEI, we are one of the first mobile operators in the world to provide the infrastructure needed for the next wave of Internet solutions. disruptive things. Ibrahim Gideon, Chief Technology Officer at TELUS “We believe that our secure logging framework for the Internet of Things will help launch a wide range of applications in Canada. In particular, this approach will be of great value to critical services, such as healthcare and critical infrastructure, where secure device identity management is critical.” » Jacques Latour, Head of Security and Technology at CIRA
