JT showcases its technology at Mobile World Congress

JT’s market-leading work in the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) will be on display at this week’s Mobile World Congress. This puts Jersey on the map at the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry.

JT has developed a special SIM card and underlying operating system which allows devices to communicate with one another automatically over mobile networks. JT’s 700+ global roaming agreements means that devices can seamlessly move onto a different network if the one they are using fails. JT SIM cards now connect over 1.4m devices worldwide. This allows JT to further reinvest international revenue into its world-class Channel Islands infrastructure and networks.

At MWC, being held in Barcelona, 26 February – 1 March, JT will partner with two leading technology software providers. North Carolina-based Able Device and Dublin-based Cellusys.

Able Device and JT will be located in the exclusive ‘Innovation City’ pavilion at MWC. Able Device’s technology takes advantage of the under-utilised processing power in every SIM card. It then turns this into an actual programmable virtual computer which can run applications, secure communications. Using Able Device’s software JT is able to monitor network quality, detect location, and save customers money. Able Device and JT will run a ‘smart’ traffic light at MWC to exhibit a practical application of their technology.

A New Partnership

Additionally, JT will announce a new partnership with IoT security specialist Cellusys at the conference. JT and Cellusys’ IoT security software allows enterprise customers to see and manage their cellular connectivity security. An IoT ‘security dashboard’ enables this to be done. Alarms can be triggered in case of attacks and enhanced security filters can be applied. For the first-time, signalling security will be available for customers who need full visibility and management capability over the security of their IoT devices.

Tom Noel, Managing Director of JT International, said: “Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry. So, it is a perfect opportunity to stay informed on everything happening in the sector and to share our latest announcements on JT advancements. These partnerships are further evidence of JT’s growing influence in the IoT space and recognition that Jersey is well ahead of the curve in embracing new technology.

“The growth in IoT has also meant that every type of industry is now looking at connected technologies to ensure it is ready for the move from automated production and IT to an automated society. This is known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. From transportation to how we communicate, automation is creating smarter services. A new way to live life, and JT is making sure that we’re at the forefront of this paradigm shift.”

About Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the revolution already under way. So, we’re seeing a growing number of internet-enabled devices that can network and communicate with each other and with other web-enabled gadgets. IoT refers to a state where ‘things’ (e.g. objects, environments, vehicles and clothing) will have more and more information associated with them. They also may have the ability to sense, communicate, network and produce new information, becoming an integral part of the internet. From extreme wildlife tracking to protect species, to air and water quality monitoring for a cleaner environment, to smart traffic and crowd management for safer and more efficient cities, uses for IoT solutions are near endless and the industries set to benefit from the IoT almost countless. Hence, 25 billion connected devices are expected to be connected to the Internet of Things by 2025.
