A decade ago, if someone had told you that a printable, flexible smart shipping label would be able to track the condition of a package for months during its shipment across land and ocean, would you have believed it? Or that a humble and inexpensive wristband could detect cardiac arrests and gain medical emergency assistance to save lives?
Even those with a strong allegiance to technology would certainly have been doubtful. Yet, such devices and many more are possible today. At the heart of these innovative solutions is a transformation in one of the core components of security—the SIM and its functionality, now available as an integrated capability into such devices.
