Gemalto extends remote provisioning to all consumer devices with GSMA compliant solution

AMSTERDAM, Nov. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO) the world leader in digital security, has introduced an enhanced version of its LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity Platform that is fully compliant with the latest update to the GSMA Consumer Remote SIM Provisioning Specification. As a result it enables device makers and mobile operators to provide subscribers with out-of-the-box connectivity for any type of consumer device fitted with an eSIM (embedded SIM), including smartphones, tablets and wearables, as well as seamless subscription management throughout the product lifecycle. On-Demand Connectivity over-the-air facilitates smooth and secure subscriber journeys and allows 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 seamlessly all types of eSIM-enabled consumer devices. Gemalto has been closely involved in its development and this commitment is reflected in the swift compliance of its On-Demand Connectivity offer. Gemalto’s end-to-end solution is already proven in numerous deployments worldwide1 and offers flexibility, scalability and straightforward integration with device manufacturers and operators’ existing processes.

Adoption of eSIM technology is fuelling rapid growth in IoT and M2M markets. It provides a single standardized 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.

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,” said Benoit Jouffrey, Vice President of On-Demand Connectivity at Gemalto.”
