Gemalto collaborates with Qualcomm Technologies

29/05/18

Gemalto has announced a new collaboration that will see its mobile connectivity solutions integrated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile PC platform. According to Gemalto, this paves the way for iSIM commercialisation on a growing range of Always Connected PCs, laptops and tablets. 

The effort will support the integration of Gemalto's eSIM technology and remote subscription management solutions with the new Secure Processing Unit (SPU) on the Snapdragon mobile PC platform. As a result, Gemalto claims this will provide seamless LTE and forthcoming 5G connection, extended battery life, and a foundation for consumer applications such as online payments, transport ticketing and authentication to cloud services. The company adds that this initiative represents the first time an eSIM will be integrated with processing platforms designed to power Always Connected PCs and similar consumer devices. 

The first wave of Always Connected PCs to incorporate Snapdragon mobile PC platforms featuring Gemalto’s technology are expected in 2019.

“This new agreement with Qualcomm Technologies aims at accelerating adoption of seamless cellular connectivity in PCs, tablets and other mobile products,” said Frédéric Vasnier, executive vice president for Mobile and IoT at Gemalto. “We are committed to continued innovation with Qualcomm Technologies in order to provide superior built-in security and connectivity experiences.”
