G&D’s subscription management platform powers DOCOMO eSIM solution for M2M devices

Munich, Germany, July 23, 2014 – NTT DOCOMO, Inc., the largest mobile network operator in Japan, has selected Giesecke & Devrient´s (G&D) subscription management solution for Japan’s first commercial eSIM (embedded SIM) service.

G&D supplies M2M SIMs and managed services to both download and switch between subscriptions on the SIM cards. With this global M2M solution, the DOCOMO eSIM service simplifies the deployment of machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, such as used in connected automobiles, industrial equipment and many more applications.

A wirelessly connected M2M product that can be shipped anywhere in the world, or can be switched from one subscription to another without shipping and physically replacing a SIM card is no longer a dream. Building on its leading smartcard technology and its software and services for managing SIM cards over the air, G&D offers a secure and flexible solution for remote, over-the-air, download and management of subscriptions on SIM cards in the field. This flexibility is provided without compromising the security necessary when managing the confidential subscription data of MNO partners.

 

“G&D is proud to be DOCOMO’s technology partner to bring this eSIM solution to market and enable more M2M devices and applications,” said Carsten Ahrens, Group Senior Vice President, Head of Telecommunication Industries division at Giesecke & Devrient. “We have leveraged our pioneering research and proven experience in secure remote management of subscription data on eSIMs to provide this cutting-edge solution, enabling MNOs to meet the demands of their M2M customers.”
