Able Device, Inc. Key Developments

Able Device and Limitless Mobile Release SIMbae

Able Device, Inc. and Limitless Mobile will focus on "unleashing the power of the SIM," the only standard component in all bespoke built mobile IoT devices, by embedding SIMbae Key Exchange Manager (S-KEM) and SIMbae Mobile IoT CPU (S-MIC), on Limitless Mobile SIMs (Subscriber Identity Modules) utilizing Limitless Mobile's nationwide wholesale RAN connectivity. These two high-value features illustrate SIMbae's compliance with 3GPP standards and the GSMA's guidelines for IoT application and security deployments. The S-KEM demo shows the advantages of utilizing existing mobile network elements and standards to secure IoT devices and applications without requiring additional services or embedded components. In this demonstration, a Raspberry Pi acting as a remote device runs an IoT application that requires an updated secure login key. The secret key is sent from a Key Exchange Server over the wireless network to a cellular module with a SIM running SIMbae. The SIM, having securely received the updated application key, passes the key to the Pi's IoT application. The S-MIC demo goes further in demonstrating the power of the existing, standard 3GPP compliant SIM when combined with SIMbae. A complete IoT application enabled with SIMbae is embedded on the SIM, in effect turning this standard network element into a standalone, secure, OTA updatable, IoT application processor, able to control machine functionality and communications.
