-- Quectel partners with Deutsche Telekom to bring nuSIM solution to answer the cost-sensitive IoT market, with the first nuSIM modules from Quectel commercially available in the second half of 2019 --
Shanghai, February 20, 2019 - Quectel Wireless Solutions, the world leading cellular and GNSS module vendor, announced that it has partnered with Deutsche Telekom to launch the integrated nuSIM solution, an innovative integrated SIM solution specifically designed for low-cost devices used in mobile IoT applications. The first nuSIM modules from Quectel will be commercially available in the second half of 2019.
The integrated nuSIM is an optimized solution where SIM function moves directly into the module chip with no physical presence of the SIM card. Perfectly matching LPWA network and SIM, nuSIM helps realize significant cost, time and space savings for players along the IoT value chain, especially suitable for IoT application scenarios such as smart metering, smart wearables and other IoT verticals which require low power consumption and constrained size.
The nuSIM solution would dramatically simplify the form factor of IoT devices and significantly reduce related SIM logistics costs. It provides minimum hardware and software footprint and is capable of being provisioned using a small size encrypted file as part of module production process. In addition, minimalist design offers optimized internal functions and interfaces with paramount power efficiency, which definitely will work with the needs of emerging cost-sensitive vertical market and help OEMs to speed up time to market at lower cost.
"Deutsche Telekom has built a solid track record in IoT technology innovation over the past years. The key driver for us is to anticipate customers’ needs to make their business successful," said Ingo Hofacker, Senior Vice President, responsible for the IoT business at Deutsche Telekom. "We are happy to have Quectel on board as one of our module partners. Quectel proves to be a trustworthy and internationally recognized partner and its leading position in the module industry helps to create the synergy. Deutsche Telekom is ready to share the nuSIM technology with other operators and vendors in the IoT segment to establish a viable eco-system. Interested parties are welcome to join."
"As a true enabler, Deutsche Telekom is strong stakeholder in the IoT marketplace and it’s anticipated that its roles will be further strengthened by launching nuSIM. We have strong feeling that the launch of nuSIM solution is an important milestone in the continuous evolution of IoT. As a world leader in the field of cellular and GNSS modules, Quectel is glad to play a role in streamlining efforts to ease use of IoT devices," said Dominikus Hierl, Quectel Senior Vice President Sales EMEA. He also added, "Quectel is very determined to promote nuSIM solution as a complementary and add-on services."
A stage presentation of the nuSIM solution will be held at the upcoming MWC Barcelona 2019 at Deutsche Telekom’s booth 3M31 during 13:00-13:45 February 27. You can also visit Quectel’s booth 5C11 to learn more.
