GSMA endorses Gemalto eSIM subscription service
New accreditation applies to industrial IoT applications, connected cars and consumer electronics
Gemalto OEM, mobile operator and service provider partners can look forward to a new level of assurance after the company attained a crucial security endorsement.
Gemalto’s On-Demand Connectivity Service has been certified to have fully complied with the security requirements of the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme for embedded SIM (eSIM) remote provisioning.
The GSMA scheme extends from initial eSIM production through to management of mobile subscriptions over the entire service lifecycle. The accreditation applies to industrial IoT applications, automotive solutions and consumer electronics.
Unlike a conventional SIM, an eSIM is soldered into a device during production and must be remotely managed during its entire lifecycle. This simplifies manufacturing and logistics, prevents tampering, and eliminates the need to fit and replace SIMs at a later stage.
“Mobile operators and OEMs can now fully benefit from the combined promises of the eSIM and remote SIM provisioning services for industrial, enterprise and consumer applications," said David Buhan, senior vice president mobile and IoT services for Gemalto.
