G+D Mobile Security powers ORANGE eSIM Service for consumer devices market across its affiliates
Munich, December 19, 2018 – Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security, the market leader in eSIM management, is providing Orange with eSIM management services to their customers.
An increasing number of next generation-connected objects do not rely on a pluggable SIM but are instead capable of connecting to cellular networks via eSIM technology. This trend covers a large range of devices, including but not limited to, smart watches, smartphones, tablets, cars, and some smart home devices.
Leader in eSIM Management technology, G+D Mobile Security has worked closely with Orange to implement services that will allow them to digitally transform the customer journey and experience. G+D Mobile Security’s eSIM management platform provides Orange customers with secure, seamless and on-demand connectivity throughout the lifecycle of their devices. Customers can remotely activate devices and add or remove services at their convenience – reducing the need for customer service intervention.
Thanks to this breakthrough transformation, several Orange affiliates were among the first European carriers to commercially launch eSIM devices since May 2018, with the Huawei Leo2 smartwatch, the Apple Watch version 3 and 4, the latest iPhone (XS / XS Max / XR) & iPad Pro 11 / 12.9’, up to the Samsung Galaxy® Watch. Additional eSIM devices are also in preparation, and will also be supported with G+D services. “We are committed to providing our customers with the best and most innovative products and services,” said Philippe Lucas, Vice President of Innovation and Technology at Orange. “With remote, on-demand activation of their e-SIM devices, our customers leap into the future of connectivity and connected objects. We are pleased to partner with G+D Mobile Security and take our customers to the next stage thanks to their eSIM management technology.”
“Our unparalleled experience in eSIM management is driving the market toward a new norm, where remote provisioning and lifecycle management of devices will become commonplace,” said Carsten Ahrens, Chief Executive Officer of G+D Mobile Security. “We are excited to support Orange in its digital transformation with our eSIM solutions to further their relationships with their consumer clients.”
G+D Mobile Security is a world leader in providing carrier-unique credentials for these devices securely over-the-air and has already delivered millions of eSIMs profiles into devices.
