T-Mobile USA, Everything Everywhere and G&D Collaborate to Enable International M2M Deployment with Industry’s First Embedded Multi-Mode IMSI SIM

Bellevue, Wash. and Orlando, Fla. — Mar. 22, 2011

Today, T-Mobile USA, Inc., in collaboration with Everything Everywhere Limited, the UK’s largest communications company, and Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), announced the ongoing development of the industry’s first embedded multi-mode international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) SIM.  Designed for cost-effective international machine-to-machine (M2M) deployment, the multi-mode solution will act as a local SIM when deployed in the U.S. and the UK. This unique “borderless” solution will offer M2M application providers the ability to deploy multiple global subscriptions for reduced roaming costs and improved coverage in areas outside of local networks.

“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, telehealth, and asset management applications.”

Marc Overton, Vice President of Wholesale and M2M at Everything Everywhere said, “We are pleased that our close collaboration with T-Mobile USA and G&D will result in this unique, “borderless” M2M solution. Single-deployment connectivity will significantly improve the way international M2M customers of Everything Everywhere and T-Mobile USA operate across both sides of the Atlantic.”


The embedded multi-mode IMSI SIM is expected to be available before the end of the year.
