Thales revolutionises IoT "out-of-the-box" connectivity to any cellular network worldwide.
- Breakthrough connectivity solution greatly simplifies and digitalises the IoT journey allowing ‘empty’ eSIMs to be personalised with chosen mobile operator credentials in factory or in the field at first power-on
- The award-winning solution combines a Cinterion® IoT Module, an IoT eSIM, and the Connectivity Activation services integrated with existing mobile operator infrastructure
- Solution can help reduce Total Cost of Ownership by more than 30%
The award winning* Cinterion® IoT Suite Connectivity Activation by Thales greatly simplifies and digitalises cellular connectivity and the daily operations of industrial IoT device manufacturers and service providers. Based on standard eSIM technology, the new solution eliminates the need for IoT service providers to setup and run complex eSIM Remote Subscription Provisioning (RSP) platforms. It uses a single IoT eSIM that works with whichever mobile operator is selected by the device manufacturer or IoT service provider. The solution also enables resilient device connectivity and lifecycle management over the multi-year life spans of industrial solutions thereby delivering a reduction in Total Cost of Ownership for customers.
By 2025, 75 billion IoT devices will be connected with a potential market value of around $1.6 trillion. This not only brings unprecedented business opportunities, but also challenges such as how to streamline supply chain logistics for smart devices.
The solution simplifies manufacturing processes and logistics: In fact, device manufacturers no longer need to produce multiple product variants for deployment with different Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in different countries. One product now fits all MNO networks as the IoT eSIM embedded in the industrial device can connect to any MNO network worldwide.
Thales system shortens device installation: Thanks to a remote activation process, the IoT eSIM automatically downloads the MNO profile that best suits the device location and connects to the network according to the service providers’ pre-defined business rules.
The solution guarantees network resilience and longevity: As networks and IoT applications evolve, the solution ensures reliable connectivity and business continuity by automatically switching to back-up connectivity providers removing the need for physical device updates.
