Workz releases the open eSIM platform

Tor Malmros of Workz Group

Mobile IoT solutions provider Workz Group launches Multi-eSIM Hub (MeSH), the multi-tenant eSIM management platform that enables mobile network operators (MNOs) to manage the eSIM lifecycle across any mix of vendors, clients, entities, or locations, through a single platform. Before now, eSIM platforms operated as closed systems, otherwise known as walled gardens, making a multi-partner or multi-system approach difficult to implement without considerable investment.

With MeSH, MNOs can enjoy enhanced capabilities from their existing eSIM management platform creating the opportunity to fluidly add multiple tenants, platforms, sites, or sales channels without the extra time and cost of setting up additional systems.

Being a platform-agnostic solution, MNOs are also able to extend their multi-vendor procurement strategy to eSIM and capitalise on improved competitiveness, business continuity and geo-redundancy by utilising more than one vendor’s system.

The system allows MNOs to orchestrate all eSIM subscriptions from one place with a common interface for real-time monitoring, billing and reporting for both consumer and M2M users. Comprising of GSMA SAS-certified hosted site and software, it is available as an on premise or cloud set up through Workz’ datacentres in Dubai, Paris and soon, Virginia, USA.

Tor Malmros, CEO of Workz Group comments, “Today’s eSIM platforms require telcos to make a heavy capital investment but are highly restrictive in terms of additional tenants and systems integration. MeSH offers the next generation of eSIM management where MNOs can unlock new possibilities and get far more return from their current platform.”

Counterpoint Research estimates that eSIM devices such as smart phones, watches, tablets, cars, and utility meters will grow from 1 billion in 2020 to more than 6 billion by 2025. Workz has been identified by market reports as one of the world’s top five leaders in eSIM technology and is one of a few providers in the world to be fully accredited by the GSMA to manage the complete embedded SIM lifecycle.
