IoT technology

Since the M2M industry first emerged in 1995, we have been a driving force in IoT innovation.

We've been developing new products, IoT solutions and services to help businesses around the world leverage the power of wireless connectivity to improve the way we work, travel and live our lives.

More than half of Thales DIS employees work in innovation and R&D, giving rise to many first-to-market accomplishments that demonstrate Thales's commitment to expanding the horizon of possibility for the IoT technology.

At Thales, we live, sleep and breathe IoT.

Nothing is more exciting or satisfying than bringing leading-edge, best-in-class solutions to customers in an ever-evolving and expanding marketplace.
