Gemalto, the provider of digital security, is supplying Transatel, a provider in global mobile & IoT connectivity, with a remote subscrip​tion management platform. It will enable users of Windows 10 eSIM-equipped PCs to get online swiftly and seamlessly, from the moment they first power up their device.

Using the Gemalto On-Demand Connectivity solution, Transatel offers OEMs a unique opportunity to market mobile subscriptions to customers around the world, directly from their devices’ toolbar.

Based on Transatel’s unrivalled global coverage and competitive loc​al tariffs in 140 countries, OEM vendors can retail mobile subscription packages with Transatel’s mobile connectivity service, using their own brand, Transatel’s or their retailer’s.

Gemalto’s solution can remotely and securely download and activate a mobile subscription on an eSIM embedded into a connected PC, and thus provide Internet connectivity even in the absence of Wi-Fi. Gemalto’s On-Demand Connectivity platform complies with the latest GSMA remote SIM provisioning specifications, and enables mobile subscriptions to be activated and managed effortlessly, over-the-air, anytime and anywhere.
