The customer wanted to deploy a global IoT solution and saw it was necessary to scale it quickly to different countries.
The customer had an IOT strategy within his products and as he sold his goods globally, the question arised, how difficult it will be to negotiate with every local network carrier to get connectivity in each single country. The customer had no idea about cellular connectivity, network carriers, etc. and had no interest in negotiating with carriers or resources.
The world of cellular connectivity is difficult to grasp for somebody with no previous experience and the arrangements with Telecom carriers have high entry barriers (commitments are necessary; a customer needs to know precisely their requirements,…).
The customer decided to use a complete eSIM solution for his global deployments, that helps minimizing effort and costs to get the right connectivity in every country
The used SIM is technically known as eUICC and is an unlocked SIM card. It enables the customer to swap between pre-negotiated carrier services “over-the-air” without the need to physically change the SIM card. An intuitive SIM management platform that is developed in-house is an easy-to-use dashboard to manage all the SIMs with one user interface and API. In case of an issue, the vendor offers personalized support. All connectivity solutions are available (2G, 3G, 4G, NB-IoT & LTE-M), so the customer got versatility in carrier options for its global deployments. As a result, the client has unlocked a feasible solution for scaling globally. Everything about cellular connectivity is controlled from one point.
No technical skills required. The client is getting consulting if hardware questions around deployments arise. The client is still responsible for his own IoT product/project but doesn't need to know about the connectivity hardware topic.
