- In the future, the companies plan to provide local carrier deals in Brazil, India and Canada
- The eSIM has the capability of using narrow band IoT (NB-IoT) and Long Term Evolution (LTE-M) (Cat-M1) profiles
Embedded sim (eSIM) solution provider, Valid has partnered with virtual connectivity provider 1oT to introduce end-to-end eSIM solution for the IoT space. The eSIM solution will allow customers, like global fleet management companies, to deploy the same 1oT eSIM to all of their tracking devices during manufacturing.
Depending on the location of the manufacturer’s service launch, the companies can choose different mobile network operators for each device which can be managed through 1oT’s platform. As a next step, the companies will start addressing regions with strict permanent roaming restrictions by providing local carrier deals in Brazil, India and Canada.
Single point of contact for global IoT connectivity
Pierre Lassus, global director of software and services, Valid, said, “We are to bring customers a consistent and convenient connectivity solution.Having a single robust system will help device makers and manufacturers alike, pushing the priority towards a more streamlined connectivity process.”
The company says that 1oT´s eSIM solution will provide a single point of contact for global IoT connectivity by acting as an aggregator of various carrier services. This will allow users like original equipment manufacturer (OEMs) and device makers to focus on their primary business without worrying about connectivity management claims 1oT. The eSim, along with 2G, 3G and 4G connectivity, has the capability of using narrow band IoT (NB-IoT) and Long Term Evolution (LTE-M) (Cat-M1) profiles.
