Global LPWA connectivity in a tiny package
Available in the second half of 2019, the first Cinterion products based on Qualcomm Technologies’ next-gen IoT LTE chipset will include the multimode Cinterion EXS62 IoT Module and Cinterion EXS82 IoT Module with 2G fallback. The miniaturized solutions are designed to deliver global connectivity and extended coverage range with support of power class 5. This can enable up to 70% reduced power consumption helping to preserve the battery for applications in remote locations. It can also reduce cost and complexity for device makers and ensures worldwide reliability, which is crucial for the 6 billion new IoT devices expected to leverage LPWAN connectivity by 20261.

Unique incremental FOTA for efficiency, longevity
The platform will leverage Gemalto’s innovative incremental FOTA technology with Lightweight M2M (LwM2M) to tackle the critical challenge of balancing bandwidth and power efficiency with software and security updates necessary over the long life of IoT devices. By streamlining overall firmware design and allowing precise revision of only the portion of code that needs updating, Gemalto can significantly reduce the overall update file size by 95% compared to competing LPWA modules. This will exceed benchmarks required by global mobile network operators and reduces transmission time, power draw and throughput. It’s essential for managing forthcoming 5G compliance updates and extending device lifespan as well as for allowing dynamic feature updates and customization.

eSIM and remote provisioning secures and simplifies connectivity
Built on Gemalto's expertise in securely managing billions of digital credentials, the new Cinterion platform will include an integrated onboard eSIM along with secure remote provisioning capabilities. Together, the solutions can authenticate IoT devices, encrypt data and securely manage connections to cellular networks globally. Embedded into the IoT module, tamper-resistant embedded SIMs will reduce the size and cost of solutions while simplifying the supply chain.

Steadfast security streamlines the device-to-cloud path
Embedding digital identity certificates inside Cinterion IoT Modules during manufacturing strengthens IoT device security and ensures data privacy. Leveraging a digital handshake authentication process, certificates verify the identity of device and applications to streamline enrollment in all the main IoT cloud platforms. It will also simplify development and reduces TCO for OEMs by eliminating the need to deploy their own secure production facilities.

“We are excited to work with strong industry leaders like Gemalto to expand the horizon of possibility in IoT solutions,” said Vieri Vanghi, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Europe, Inc. “Our collaboration with Gemalto on their new Cinterion LPWAN IoT Module Platform can allow OEMs to easily integrate and launch products using our cutting-edge Qualcomm 9205 LTE IoT modem, and in doing so, they will help enable massive IoT connectivity that can transform industries and make life better.”

“Gemalto’s Cinterion LPWAN IoT Module Platform will bring together our deep expertise in both IoT connectivity and digital security and provide a wealth of unique features that can allow device manufacturers to take the lead in IoT innovation,” said Andreas Haegele, SVP IoT Products, Gemalto. “Our continued collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies allows us to deliver on our customer promise of innovating new technologies to advance connectivity possibilities, support their business success and enable trust in the IoT.”

Janssen announces European Commission approval of ERLEADA® (apalutamide) for non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer patients who are at high risk of developing metastatic disease16.1.2019 13:24Pressemelding

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced that the European Commission (EC) has granted marketing authorisation for ERLEADA® (apalutamide), a next generation oral androgen receptor inhibitor for the treatment of adult patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) who are at high risk of developing metastatic disease. The EC approval is based on data from the pivotal Phase 3 SPARTAN study, which was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. The study assessed the efficacy and safety of apalutamide plus androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) versus placebo plus ADT in patients with nmCRPC who had a rapidly rising prostate specific antigen (PSA) level despite receiving continuous ADT. Findings from the study showed that apalutamide plus ADT, significantly reduced the risk of developing distant metastasis or death (metastasis free survival [MFS]) by 72 percent, compared to placebo in combination with ADT (HR = 0.28; 95% CI, 0
