Giesecke & Devrient and Ericsson have partnered to deliver a commercial end-to-end subscription management solution. Via a highly secure process, the system will enable the remote provisioning and management of mobile operator SIM profiles and policies.
The joint solution will make it possible for mobile network operators (MNOs) to provide their business customers with a one-stop shop for global M2M connectivity services. In addition, by minimizing the complexity involved in setting up services across disparate regions, the collaboration will target businesses’ need to deliver connected devices worldwide.
Ericsson, a world leader in communications technology and services, and G&D, a leading international technology provider specializing in mobile security, will provide an integrated solution to address the challenges that come with deploying connected devices across borders. These challenges include the provisioning and re-provisioning of the SIM profiles remotely, automated billing, reporting, support, and operational management processes.
The solution provides MNOs and service providers who use the Ericsson Device Connection Platform (DCP) with the ability to optimize the processes involved. The collaboration between Ericsson and G&D makes it possible for MNOs to remotely manage the initial connectivity, on demand and on a global scale, during the roll-out phases of an M2M/IoT solution.
The solution combines the Ericsson DCP and G&D’s leading AirOn™ platform, which covers the management of eUICCs and operator profiles over-the-air (OTA), secure data generation, and selection of the most suitable download channel. All of this is easily managed through an API and with the highest level of security.
The G&D solution has already proven that it can be integrated into a range of M2M platforms; for MNOs, this multi-platform usability offers a key competitive edge in the evolving market.
