Regulatory News:

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is
again simplifying Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology and expanding the
Internet of Things (IoT) with the launch of the Cinterion® Concept Board for
developers. The IoT gives physical objects the ability to automatically
transfer information over a network, which creates a platform for smart
decisions and continuously improved process and interactions. With the
Internet of Things’ ubiquitous intelligence, people can be alerted to the
nearest parking space, available taxi or cycle path all with a simple app. The
Cinterion Concept Board is designed to expand these IoT possibilities through
speeding up the creation of innovative solutions in digital signage^1,
automated building applications, remote monitoring and control of devices^2
and more.

The new development kit simplifies solution design by allowing the vast
community of M2M developers to transform original ideas into prototypes in
just hours compared to days or weeks with traditional approaches. Leveraging
Oracle Java ME Embedded, Gemalto’s unique Cinterion Concept Board will provide
potentially over nine million Java developers worldwide with an easy and
cost-efficient method to engage in the M2M marketplace. The Cinterion Concept
Board is also cloud-ready through Gemalto’s SensorLogic application enablement
platform with secure wireless connectivity enabled by a Cinterion M2M module.
The all-in-one kit marries the ease-of-use of Java embedded solutions with a
simple open source interface for Arduino^3 extension boards inspiring the
creation of smarter interactive objects and environments.

“Java developers are an inventive and passionate group, and Gemalto’s
Cinterion Concept Board  gives them the ideal tool to quickly get started
creating applications for the Internet of Things,” said Nandini Ramani, vice
president of development, Java Platform, Oracle. “With 50 billion connected
devices predicted for 2020^4, there is a tremendous opportunity for developers
to connect and automate the IoT with the Java enabled Concept Board.”

“Our Cinterion Concept Board is the easiest and most cost effective way for
anyone with an interest in M2M and the IoT to create solutions like remotely
controlling the temperature of your home thermostat helping to save energy and
money,” said Axel Hansmann, VP of M2M Strategy and Marketing at Gemalto. “With
the Cinterion  Concept Board, we are tapping the creativity of Java
developers, enabling them to invent cool applications that can then enhance
the IoT.”

The Cinterion® Concept Board will be available starting October 2013 and can
be pre-ordered here.
