ASPIDER-NGI and IDEMIA license technologies to accelerate eSIM implementations.
The Netherlands, June 28, 2017. ASPIDER-NGI, a leading provider of MVNE, IoT, connectivity and content solutions, announced a partnership with OT-Morpho (now IDEMIA). IDEMIA is a world leader in digital security and identification technologies.
The ASPIDER-NGI is providing IDEMIA with a portfolio of fallback, bootstrap and operational profiles, SMS numbering and IoT eConnect. IoT eConnect is a preconfigured Service Delivery Platform to manage connectivity to the network from provisioning and activation to billing. The components will be integrated to IDEMIA’s eSIM and Subscription Management solution (SM-DP and SM-SR). The result is to deliver out of the box solutions to their clients which includes remote provisioning.
“This past year we have been collaborating very closely with ASPIDER-NGI on a range of eSIM projects and we are very pleased that ASPIDER-NGI is using our technology as part of their solution to deliver additional connectivity possibilities to their customers.” said Viken Gazarian, OT-Morpho, Deputy Managing Director of Connected Device Makers business, OT. “Our platform will enable them to create a secure connection to the eSIM integrated to the devices for the remote provisioning and activation of mobile subscriptions. Compliant with GSMA standards, this solution allows usage of the best cellular network at all times during the device’s life-time in a secure and flexible way.”
“We are seeing more and more businesses that acknowledge the eSIM technology as the best option for them to manage the connectivity of their devices and equipments in a flexible way. Integrating the subscription management with the service management is an obvious step” – Michel Zwijnenberg, VP of IoT at ASPIDER-NGI. “This means that we can deliver a more complete solution. A solution that includes all the components needed to get eSIM deployed quickly.”
eSIM: Control and Ownership
The eSIM technology is significant not just because it supports remote management of the operator profiles used, but also because the manufacturer or enterprise can use it to better manage the device connectivity. And also manage it over the device lifetime in order to get the optimum QoS & coverage depending on specific location. In addition, the enterprise can control and own the applications and security on the eSIM – and use that to distribute and manage enterprise connectivity and applications.
ASPIDER-NGI is using these initiatives to launch “eSIM eConnect” later this quarter. This product allows the enterprise to own and control their SIMs. Our eSIM Connect also allows firms to manage SIMs using technology trusted by their operator partners.
Zwijnenberg continued: “Manufacturers and enterprises are starting to recognize the huge value of delivering applications, managing devices and tracking behavior.”
