ORLANDO, Fla. — T-Mobile USA Inc. announced a pair of new tele-health partners and the development of an embedded multi-mode international mobile subscriber identity SIM for global M2M deployment. GeaCom Inc. and BeClose.com both tapped the carrier to provide connectivity for their tele-health systems and devices. Separately, the carrier’s new multi-mode SIM for international M2M will provide M2M application providers the ability to deploy various global subscriptions at reduced roaming costs. Built in collaboration with Everything Everywhere Limited and Giesecke & Devrient, the new multi-mode solution will act as a local SIM when deployed in the United States and United Kingdom.
“In today’s increasingly competitive M2M marketplace, it is imperative we provide our customers with cost-effective solutions that best meet their global design requirements without any compromises,” said John Horn, national director of M2M at T-Mobile USA. “With the innovative multi-mode IMSI SIM, T-Mobile can help customers to significantly reduce the time and costs associated with the international redesign and redeployment of their telematics, tele-health, and asset management applications.”
The embedded multi-mode IMSI SIM should be available by the end of the year.
