eSIM solution for IoT connected devices shown at ARM TechCon by Oasis Smart SIM
Oasis demonstrated the cellular connectivity solution made for mobile network operators (MNOs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) during the recent ARM TechCon show in Santa Clara, California. The solution is said to be based on the enhanced version of HeliOS Embedded SoftSIM product running on an ARM based chip.
During ARM TechCon, Oasis Smart SIM demonstrated its embedded Software SIM. This reportedly enables the embedding of USIM functionalities inside devices and machines without the constraints of integrating removable or built-in SIM hardware, and providing seamless connectivity and remote provisioning of IoT smart devices.
The company has enhanced its offer based on the concept of “2 clicks connectivity”, already launched and showcased at Mobile World Congress 2016. The eSIM Operating System runs securely on an ARM-based processor and works along with eOS Subscription Manager, the associated remote SIM provisioning and lifecycle management platform. The platform reportedly enables the device to be securely provisioned and managed with multiple network subscriptions.
According to Olivier Leroux, Oasis’ CEO, “Oasis has been expert in the field of SIM and USIM Operating System for years through its trademarked HeliOS product, and our technology is embedded in more than 200 million devices via standard removable SIM card or embedded M2M modules. Our motto being to ‘reshape the SIM business’, our ‘2 clicks connectivity solution based on a SoftSIM application and its complimentary remote subscription manager is clearly meeting this ambition.
“It embeds the USIM functionality and more generally an IoT Connectivity directly into devices, avoiding the use of removable SIM hardware which increases the manufacturing costs and time-to-market for device makers. The complimentary subscription management platform enabling to remotely switch networks and manage the eSIM lifecycle, will ease the customers’ logistics and allow them the freedom of choosing and switching the cellular operator whenever they wish. This is the way we reshape our ecosystem,” he said.
