Gemalto leverages Combain’s cloud-based geolocation service in their M2M modules

Lund, Sweden, 9 November 2016 – Combain Mobile AB, a world leading geolocation provider for connected devices, is excited to announce a partnership with Gemalto, the world leader in digital security. Gemalto provides connectivity modules to companies building Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Location information is absolutely key for many IoT use-cases like Security, Retail and Logistics. In some use-cases, it is not possible to rely on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) like GPS or GLONASS since they have limited or no coverage in shielded environments, such as convention centers, underground parking garages and warehouses. To answer these specific use cases, the location information can be obtained by triangulation of cell-towers. To make it easy for customers using their M2M modules, Gemalto has now integrated Combain’s geolocation service into a variety of Cinterion® M2M modules.

“Combain is excited about this cooperation with Gemalto. We believe in the power of the cloud and how smart cloud-services can enhance the features of connected devices. With our geolocation service integrated into specific Gemalto M2M modules, customers benefit from our global and continuously growing crowd-sourced database, now including more than 79 million cell-towers all around the world and supporting 2G, 3G and 4G technologies”, says Rikard Windh, chairman of the board and co-founder of Combain Mobile AB.

“The Combain geolocation service is easily available through AT commands and also offers a cost effective solution for users who only need location data at the time of deployment or on rare occasions across the lifecycle of the application”, says Axel Hansmann, VP Strategy and Marketing M2M at Gemalto.
