SoftBank officially goes LIVE with Gemalto’s Remote Subscription Management Platform, enabling secure connectivity for all consumer devices

In April, SoftBank selected Gemalto’s On-Demand Subscription (ODC) platform to connect both consumer and industrial IoT devices in Japan and beyond. We are happy to announce that the ODC platform for consumer devices has gone live, enabling consumers to connect their eSIM-enabled secondary devices to SoftBank’s mobile network without tethering.
·  Gemalto’s ODC platform is fully compliant with GSMA standards, and can be used in conjunction with any consumer devices featuring eSIM technology.
·  SoftBank users can now enjoy direct internet connectivity for the latest eSIM-enabled smart watches, fitness wearables, and many other mobile devices that traditionally relied on a smartphone for connection.
In the future, eSIM will become the default identification module for all cellular IoT devices. Together with an ODC platform, mobile service providers can easily provision connectivity for these IoT devices and remotely manage their connections.

Gemalto has delivered eSIM subscription management servers to mobile network operators across different regions, from North America to Europe and Asia – more than 50 subscription management solutions for both consumer and machine-to-machine (M2M) applications have been successfully deployed so far.

For the consumer space, our partnerships with operators include Softbank and
Telefonica, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like Samsung, Limmex,Microsoft, and Lenovo. In particular, Gemalto participated in the launch of Samsung’s Gear smart watches through TIM Italy and Orange France.

With the smart devices, mobile operators need an open platform regulated by GSMA for OEMs. Since the inception of eSIM, Gemalto is committed to achieving this industry vision. Today, 
Gemalto is the only fully GSMA SAS-SM1  certified supplier providing a proven, robust and secure environment for commercial launches, which involve remote SIM provisioning technology.

1The GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme (SAS) enables MNOs to assess the security of their UICC & eSIM suppliers, and of their eSIM Subscription Management (SM) service providers.
