IoTize™ Wins SESAME Innovation Award!

IoTize wins 2016 Sesame

Trustech annual awards recognize IoTize for innovation in trusted IoT technologies.​

30 November 2016, Cannes, France – Today at the Trustech exhibition for secure technologies, IoTize™ won the event’s SESAME Award in the category Internet of Things (IoT). IoTize is a patented turn-key connectivity solution that allows companies to add RF interfaces such as NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to their products without redesigning their product’s firmware.

IoTize leverages on-chip debugging/programming resources to allow retrofit of existing product designs for the IoT in just days. The solution also renders the connectivity channel (NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, etc.) transparent to a product’s embedded firmware. This means evolving connectivity from Bluetooth to Wi-Fi, for example, is as easy as connecting a new IoTize module to the product.

In 2016, the first IoTize prototypes were introduced featuring NFC and Bluetooth connectivity with software-based local security for management of user profiles, access control and data encryption.

IoTize is also a R&D collaborative research project with the participation of STMicroelectronics, Gemalto, the Laboratoire Informatique de Grenoble (LIG) and the ISEN engineering school of Toulon. The project will culminate in 2018 with the addition of a complete, scalable infrastructure for cloud-to-core security. The IoTize project is endorsed by the French innovation clusters — Pole SCS and Minalogic, and benefits from national and regional funding.

The SESAMES are annual awards organized as part of the Trustech trade show to showcase innovations in the trust-based technologies industry in six categories; eGovernment, eTransactions, Manufacturing & Tests, IoT, Cybersecurity and Retail. The awards are attributed by an international panel of technology experts and were presented during the Trustech event in Cannes, France from November 29th to December 1st 2016.

IoTize NFC / Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) modules are featured on the KEOLABS stand Riviera J 045.

About IoTize SAS

IoTize ( is a French technology start-up based near Grenoble, a European hub for micro and nanotechnologies. In collaboration with industry-leading partners, IoTize designs and manufactures a range of wireless connectivity solutions for microcontroller-based embedded systems (TapNLink) and systems implementing any industry-standard system BUS (TapNPass). To meet the demands of diverse use cases in the Internet of Things (IoT), IoTize solutions integrate a range of wireless technologies ranging from Near Field Communications (NFC), Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to LPWAN technologies such as LoRA and SigFox. All IoTize solutions are designed for plug'n play integration into existing system designs thus reducing time-to-market and risks associated with migrating them to the IoT.
