Gemalto now provides M2M connectivity for SOLARKIOSK, an electrical generator able to dramatically improve lives of people residing in remote rural communities in the Third World.
A press statement by the Amsterdam-based digital security solutions vendor said Gemalto's Cinterion modules will deliver M2M connectivity powering a mobile router.
It described the SOLARKIOSK as a compact, solar-powered station that can be transported on a mobile vehicle.
On the other hand, the mobile router enables monitoring of the SOLARKIOSK photovoltaic panels and through a Web interface tracks energy production and consumption.
SOLARKIOSKs support plug-in access for appliances, devices and a broad range of systems.
They produce electricity for a variety of services, including refrigerated storage for medicines and consumer products.
SOLARKIOSKs can serve also as charging stations for mobile phones, which have now become much more affordable to many impoverished people in the Third World, due to the introduction of very low-priced models.
