- TELUS and CIRA to implement the Thales GSMA IoT SAFE solution for a new country-wide security management system for IoT devices.
- Thales solution integrates chip-to-cloud security with mutual authentication between devices and IoT Cloud Platform, guaranteeing data confidentiality and integrity.
- The innovative system offers simplified remote management of connected devices across a wide range of IoT sectors, including energy, healthcare, infrastructure, and more.
Thales technology is at the heart of a new Canadian IoT project that is enabling instant, secure and scalable cloud connectivity for SIM/eSIM enabled IoT. Working alongside TELUS, a leading Canadian wireless network operator, and the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), the project’s certification partner, Thales is supplying SIMs and the IoT server, both compliant with the GSMA IoT SAFE specifications.
The Thales IoT SAFE service offers an interoperable framework enabling swift deployment of IoT applications. Delivered in a plug & play SaaS mode, it benefits minimal integration effort. It creates a scalable and automatic environment for cloud data security of SIM-equipped devices with a remote management feature.
TELUS continues its IoT expansion with devices across Canada, offering enterprises an innovative system that eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming site visits. For example, a city can use the platform to manage their entire fleet of connected parking meters. The concept will also be used as the basis for further commercial IoT offers, in areas such as healthcare or energy, where fleets of connected devices handle data that needs to be protected.
