WISeKey’s Subsidiary WISeSAT.space Ushers a New Era of Smart Containers, Deploying its Cutting Age Track & Trace Technology for Caspian Container Company SA, a Container Logistics Arm of Integral Group
All parties are inviting industry players to work together to shape the containers’ market by joining an industry-first consortium: the agreement to be signed at the Global Freight Summit (GFS) combined with the Caspian Week Forum, which will take place during November 15-17, 2023, in Dubai, UAE
Geneva, November 7, 2023 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey”) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leader in cybersecurity, digital identity, and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions operating as a holding company, today announced that in a transformative move set to revolutionize the logistics arena, its subsidiary WISeSAT.Space, a forerunner in secure IoT communication through space networks, to sign a pioneering partnership with Caspian Container Company SA, a container logistics arm of Integral Group, spanning the Greater Caspian Region. This project aims as well to create an industry-first consortium (the “Consortium”) focused on the deployment of IoT-enabled devices and sensors to containers, thus facilitating global, instantaneous track and trace via the WISeSat Satellite constellation.
Embrace the Momentum: A Journey to a Smarter, Sustainable Logistical Future
The goal is for every Caspian Container Company container to be fitted with WISeKey’s sensor and Secure Element, a tamper-proof silicon chip from its revered VaultIC family. This advanced secure microcontroller, effortlessly integrable by manufacturers into any object, is offered as a provisioning service, thereby shifting the onus of device personalization to WISeKey’s ultra-secure Personalization Center. Designed meticulously to serve as the data and value transfer backbone for the Machine Economy, it signals the next stride in technological advancement.
WISeSAT and the Caspian Container Company are inviting the industry affiliates and enthusiasts to attend the GFS (www.globalfreightsummit2023.com) and Caspian Week Forum (www.caspianweek.org) in Dubai, where this historic Consortium contract is expected to materialize. Experience the unveiling of a venture that leverages state-of-the-art secure IoT solutions, destined to reconfigure the logistics landscape and herald an era of heightened connectivity and operational prowess.
Unveiling a Novel Collaboration in Smart Logistics
WISeSAT’s landmark partnership with FOSSA Systems and Avant iot aims to deploy a break through end to end value proposition to enable standard containers becoming connected leveraging the WISeSAT IoT sensors using SEALSQ tamper-proof silicon chips. This strategic alliance will be spotlighted during the Global Freight Summit (GFS) in Dubai, which will take place during November 15-17, 2023, aligning with the much-anticipated Caspian Week Forum (CW). At the event, the partners will showcase their avant-garde solution – the WISeSAT.space comprehensive suite for real-time monitoring and management of smart containers (Register here to receive a free invite).
