Managing device connectivity can be really simple
Digital device technology is evolving at breakneck speed. But in some markets, demand is maturing. Global device manufacturers look at exciting new services to differentiate whilst satisfying customers’ expectations around service, speed, and security.
These requirements create testing challenges. How do you simplify the supply chain when selling connected devices worldwide? How do you manage connectivity over the entire product lifecycle?
And how do you ensure the best user experience, with fast, secure device connectivity, right out of the box?
Consumer expectations are challenging
Securing fast service access on all types of connected personal devices requires manufacturers to address multiple trends in the marketplace. The more effectively they can solve these challenges to deliver seamless device activation, connectivity control, and user convenience, the stronger their ability to establish robust and profitable relationships with mobile operators.
The device real estate used for connectivity must be as small as possible
Security and privacy
Users need the peace of mind that comes with effective device protection
Users expect devices and connectivity to be robust enough to cope with anything from a commute to rock-climbing
Personal devices need to integrate with the wider world of IoT devices, from fridges to interactive advertising and beyond
Every device must have its own connection
G+D has pioneered the development of eSIM Management and the standardization process for many years, and now manages millions of connected devices worldwide. The benefits of our solution include:
Easy implementation into connected devices of all types and sizes
Straightforward remote, secure management of multiple profiles and identities, over-the-air
An optimal user experience through constant connectivity and dynamic service updates
Simplified supply chain, production and distribution flow with no need to stock and ship multiple types of SIM cards around the world
Supports clear differentiation from competitors by enabling cellular connectivity on a wide range of consumer electronics devices including tablets, smartwatches, wristbands, PCs, and more.
Enables a one-stop-shop connectivity-and-device value proposition to strengthen customer relationships and loyalty
Single-supplier operational connectivity services for fast deployment of connected devices worldwide
eSIM Management allows OEMs to:
flexibly manage subscriptions, anytime, anywhere at first device activation
offer enhanced customer experience with a simple and fast enrollment and onboarding
develop global partnerships with MNOs
ease logistics by empowering device manufacturers to more easily serve a global market: they no longer need to store a wide range of SIM cards to pre-install them with mobile-operator profiles
For the OEM:
• Address complete consumer device portfolio (wearables, tablets, phones)
• Optimized operations and SIM logistics
• Reduced footprint with eSIM
• Offers potential for optimized design due to high reliability and space savings
• Upsell potential on additional device services
• Add customer value on top of the existing core products (hardware)
For the consumer/end user:
• Better user experience
• Greater flexibility / choice amongst several MNO contracts / networks
• Companion devices will operate independently of a smartphone, with own subscriptions
• Allows multiple devices to be connected through the same subscription
The G+D eSIM Management solution for consumer device manufacturers includes:
A solution suite for provisioning and remote subscription management in any type of electronic device
Secure identity management at all times
An embedded SIM or eUICC incorporated into the device at the production stage, guaranteeing maximum security
eSIM Management solutions
As the Internet of Things grows at an exponential rate, connectivity is an issue that is increasingly affecting almost every market sector. eSIM management makes connectivity easy to manage in and across markets.
Managing eSIMs in connected cars
eSIMs help provide flexible and manageable connectivity, which eases all sorts of logistical issues in the car production process.
eSIM Management for mobile operators
eSIMs allow for consumer device enablement and the provisioning of a fully digital journey for the mobile subscriber
