Transatel has opted to use Gemalto’s remote subscription management platform for its Windows 10 eSIM services.
The company is a European Mobile Virtual Network Enabler and Aggregator. Since its launch in 2000, the firm has established more than 150 MVNOs; but more germane to Gemalto’s solution, the company has been focusing on the IoT market since 2014. Its deal with Gemalto will see the latter’s On-Demand Connectivity solution used to manage the subscriptions of computer devices that feature eSIM technology and run on Microsoft’s latest operating system.
In a statement announcing the collaboration, Transatel CEO Jacques Bonifay explained that Gemalto’s On-Demand Connectivity solution “extends and strengthens the support we can offer laptop and tablet manufacturers.” Bonifay added that the solution enables Transatel to “help OEMs enhance the customer experience and create new revenue streams, whilst transforming the laptop and tablet industry’s business model.”
Gemalto’s On-Demand Connectivity solution became the first to achieve full compliance with the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme last summer, and appears to be increasingly popular as more device makers seek to incorporate eSIM technology into their products.
