Gemalto: Gemalto and Bridge Alliance, a partnership of 35 leading operators in Asia, demonstrate GSMA standards-based solution for multi-country deployment of

Amsterdam, Feb. 18, 2016
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
andBridge Allianceare demonstrating a solution for multi-country deployment
of IoT devices at the Mobile World Congress, using Gemalto's LinqUs On-Demand
Connectivity
(ODC) subscription management solution. Bridge Alliance is a partnership of 35
leading operators in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, serving over 750
million customers. This demonstration, based on theGSMAinteroperable
standards, shows how hermetically sealed M2M and IoT devices such as
connected cars or smart meters can securely connect to any Bridge Alliance
Member Operator using remote 'over-the-air' provisioning.

Ciscopredicts that the global IoT market will reach USD 14.4 trillion by
20221. As M2M businesses evolve and transform to IoT, the adoption of a
single, interoperable specification for instant connectivity of connected
devices will reduce fragmentation. There will be no need for device makers to
plan for unique subscription at production or build device variants for
different operators. With Bridge Alliance's extensive footprint, any IoT
device will be able to connect to any affiliate's network, making it easier
to deploy innovative IoT services across multiple countries.

"The rapid rise in urbanization, device proliferation, and demand for supply
chain efficiency is poised to drive the need for IoT worldwide,"
said Eileen Tan, CEO of Bridge Alliance. "We are trialing withGemalto Embedded
SIM solution as it simplifies the design, manufacturing and
deployment process for IoT business, and in accordance with GSMA standards.
This trial enables Bridge Alliance operators to demonstrate our ability to
provide secure, scalable and reliable connectivity across Bridge Alliance
footprint, while eliminating logistical challenges for OEMs and automakers."

"Gemalto has been at the forefront of defining and adopting standards-based
technology for years,"
said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. "With unified,
global specifications now, subscription profiles can be
downloaded on demand, paving the way for a greater number of connected M2M
and IoT devices, and an accelerated growth of the industry."
