Gemalto has announced its new Discovery Service solution which allows users to easily activate the mobile subscription of their eSIM-enabled consumer IoT devices, such as smartwatches, tablets, connected PCs and many more.
“The new Subscription Management Discovery Service solution, according to the company, sets new standards of freedom for all users of eSIM-connected devices, by simplifying the customer’s experience of connecting a device ‘out-of-the-box’ to the cellular network with the offer of their choice.”
Users simply select their preferred mobile operator, purchase a subscription which is instantly downloaded and activated over-the-air.
Indeed it makes eSIM activation seamless and works for any device:
- In the case of devices sold independently from a mobile subscription, it removes the hassle of issuing a QR code for activation and automatically gives users the freedom to choose their network.
- For operator-branded devices, it automatically connects to the operator’s back-end to activate the eSIM. This makes adoption of eSIM technology a lot simpler for end-users.
“The Discovery Service will boost eSIM adoption by OEMs and mobile operators as our solution facilitates the service deployment” said Benoit Jouffrey, vice president Connected & Embedded Solutions for Gemalto. “Part of our On-Demand Connectivity offer, this revolutionary service fits into our broader vision to enable a secure and seamless digital customer journey.”
