On-Demand Connectivity is designed to enable the easy administration of embedded SIMs adhering to the GSMA’s Embedded SIM and Embedded SIM M2M specifications.

In a statement announcing the move, Bridge Alliance CEO Eileen Tan explained that the organization’s aim is to offer customers “world-class, seamless connectivity services for both industrial and consumer IoT devices,” adding that Gemalto’s solution allows the organization “to automate the provision of connectivity services over-the-air” to meet customer needs.
