Deutsche Telekom And Digi International Announce Collaboration In M2M Market

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) and Deutsche Telekom today announced a collaboration to enable easy access and control of remote devices used in machine-to-machine (M2M) applications throughout Europe. Digi will integrate Deutsche Telekom’s industrial-grade SIM cards into its wireless gateways and routers and M2M SIM management functionalities into the iDigi Device Cloud™.

Digi International is a global M2M solutions provider headquartered in Minnesota, USA. The company provides wireless products, services and the iDigi Device Cloud to help organizations use device data to improve business efficiencies and increase revenue.

Digi M2M solutions are used in numerous applications, such as connecting and monitoring remote assets like storage tanks, vehicle fleets, solar power arrays and other remote devices. Therefore, Digi’s M2M solutions are often used in places where rough weather, movement, vibrations and extreme temperatures can interfere with the optimal functionality of integrated SIM cards.

Deutsche Telekom offers special M2M Form Factor (MFF) SIM chips, designed for the purpose of reliable usage under extreme weather and temperature conditions. Digi will be the first gateway and router manufacturer to integrate Deutsche Telekom’s M2M Form Factor SIM chips. Since the chips are soldered into place, the possibility of a plastic SIM becoming loose from vibration in transit or while deployed is eliminated. Extreme heat or cold temperatures will not damage the chip, and chips are safely protected against moisture.

To further their collaboration, Deutsche Telekom M2M and Digi are integrating the SIM management functionalities of Deutsche Telekom’s M2M Service Portal into the iDigi Device Cloud, allowing customers to manage their devices and SIM cards in one central location.

“We believe that with Digi’s unique wireless gateways and Deutsche Telekom’s MFF SIMs specifically designed for industrial usage, customers get the most reliable service on the market,” said Jürgen Hase, head of Deutsche Telekom’s M2M Competence Center. “With the implementation of our M2M Service Portal into the iDigi Cloud there is also full access to all necessary registration and maintenance in one place, ensuring a convenient user experience.”
