Gemalto enhances remote provisioning to all consumer devices
Gemalto upgrades its LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity platform
Digital security provider, Gemalto has revealed a developed version of its LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity platform, which is fully compliant with the latest update to the GSMA Consumer Remote SIM Provisioning specification.
Benoit Jouffrey, vice president of On-Demand Connectivity at Gemalto, said: "By fulfilling all the requirements of the revised GSMA standard so rapidly, our On-Demand Connectivity Platform will help sustain dynamic growth in the market."
The upgrade means device makers and mobile operators to provide subscribers with out-of-the-box connectivity for any type of consumer device fitted with an eSIM, including smartphones, tablets and wearables, as well as subscription management throughout the product lifecycle.
This On-Demand Connectivity over-the-air facilitates secure subscriber journeys and enables mobile operators, OEMs and service providers to invent new "on the fly" services and generate new revenue streams from the fast growing consumer IoT market.
Phase 2 of the GSMA specification builds on the initial version launched earlier this year, making it possible to address all types of eSIM-enabled consumer devices.
Adoption of eSIM technology is fuelling rapid growth in IoT and M2M markets. It provides a single standardised solution that is embedded at the device manufacturing stage and can be employed across all markets and regions. Supported by the On-Demand Connectivity platform, choosing a subscription package and connecting to the network becomes as easy as turning on the device.
