Press Release 08/30/2017: Able Device and Janus to Demo SIMbae™ Mobile IoT Application Hosting at Mobile World Congress Americas

Standards compliant SIM-based solution showcases mobile IoT application hosting as part of GSMA Innovation City.

Raleigh, NC, August 30, 2017Able Device, a pioneer in SIM-based IoT/M2M application technology, and Janus Remote Communications, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of precision IoT products and solutions, today announced they are partnering to exhibit in GSMA Innovation City during this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) Americas. The joint demonstration will showcase “unleashing the power of the SIM,” the only standard component in all bespoke built mobile IoT devices, by embedding Able Device’s SIMbae Mobile IoT CPU (S-MIC), on an active LTE SIM inserted in a Janus LTE910XF CAT 1 plug-in modem. The simple combination of the SIM and LTE module contained in the plug-in modem will be used to monitor the status of a door, with all the application logic residing and executed on the SIM.

Embedding a complete IoT application enabled with SIMbae on a SIM, in effect turns this standard network element into a standalone, secure, OTA updatable, IoT application processor able to control machine functionality and communications that adheres to GSMA guidelines for the deployment of mobile IoT applications and device security. This combination of innovative technology unleashes the power of the existing, standard 3GPP compliant SIM when combined with SIMbae.

“Able Device is excited to demonstrate SIMbae’s IoT application hosting capabilities using the Janus plug-in modem for two reasons; the first being that its configuration is the perfect platform for exploiting all of the advantages of SIMbae driven IoT applications,” said Roger Dewey, Able Device CEO. “The second being that the founding Able Device team members have previous experience working with Janus and their products and have experienced the excellent innovation, support, quality, and organizational integrity that Janus offers.”

About Able Device

Able Device is a provider of technology for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and IoT service providers. Its flagship product SIMbae™ (short for “SIM based application engine”) enables hosting of IoT device controls and applications on standard SIMs. In this new architecture, the SIM is transformed to an intelligent independent processor. As SIMbae utilizes established and common 3GPP SIM standards, IoT controls and applications implemented this way become device and carrier agnostic – with benefits including shorter time to market, reduced development cost, lower operating cost, and improved security. Based in Raleigh, NC, Able Device serves mobile network operators globally. For more information, visit
