We expect the onboarding of more devices as well as joint initiatives in area of IoT.”
Many new connected devices, like the recently launched Apple Watch and some IoT devices, don’t have a slot for a pluggable SIM, but are instead capable of connecting to cellular networks via embedded SIM technology. G+D Mobile Security has been a leading provider of eSIM management technology to activate the carrier-unique credentials securely over-the-air on these devices and supports a large number of network operators worldwide in their eSIM projects.
With its AirOn® Go hosted eSIM management solution, G+D Mobile Security supports the market adoption of eSIM technologies for carriers of all sizes.
