Oberthur Technologies SA Key Developments

Saudi Telecom Company Collaborates with Oberthur Technologies and Huawei to Pioneer Solutions around eSIM Technologies

Saudi Telecom Company, Oberthur Technologies and Huawei have teamed up to pioneer the introduction of remote subscription management solutions in the MENA Region and develop new opportunities around eSIM technology. In this regard, STC announced the 1st eSIM trial in the MENAregion that uses the GSMA compliant subscription management platform from OT and Huawei smartwatch. The eSIM technology allows users to order, install, and activate profiles over-the-air in a seamless, secure, and convenient way, avoiding the hassle of waiting in a long queue at the sales office. It also brings the additional advantage for smartwatch users as it enables them to make calls directly from the smartwatch even if the mobile phone is offline. OT’s solution is compliant with the GSMA roadmap and has exceptional pioneering tier 1 references in Europe and across the globe. OT offers end-to-end solution to securely and remotely change and manage subscriptions, with minimum impact on an MNO’s systems and infrastructures.

Oberthur Technologies Delivers Full eSIM Solution for Windows 10 to Revolutionize Laptop and Notebook Connectivity

OT (Oberthur Technologies) announced the availability of a full GSMA Consumer Phase 2 eSIM (embedded SIM) solution validated for Microsoft Windows 10. This solution is set to transform connectivity usage to the great advantage of laptop and notebook computer users, offering them wider coverage and the ubiquity of cellular service. Up until now, laptop and notebook computer users wanting to connect to a cellular network had to plug a physical SIM card into their device. With this eSIM, the physical and Mobile Operator parts of the SIM are separate and the latter can be reprogrammed remotely, which means greater flexibility for users when selecting a network of their choice. This technology will eventually enable them to stay connected on the move, without access to WiFi, by selecting one of the available cellular networks on their device, thus using mobile data in an easy and secure manner. DakOTa 4.0 is the first version of OT’s eSIM fully designed to address specific subscription management needs for consumer devices, in compliance with GSMA phase 2 specifications. It gives the possibility to consumers to manage their connectivity plans directly on their devices. The validation of OT’s eSIM usage in the Windows 10 environment opens up opportunities for device makers using the Windows OS to offer consumers a wider range of cellular services to the greater connectivity capabilities of devices running with Windows 10 and equipped with DakOTa 4.0.

OT and Telenor Group Partner to Be Ahead of the SIM Digitalization Era

OT announced that OT has been selected by Telenor Group, to launch OT's subscription management technology for eUICC for both consumer and M2M markets. This partnership is a new step in the acceleration of the digitalization of the SIM card. By adopting OT's Subscription Management technology for eUICC, Telenor Group will follow its digital transformation program by expanding its connectivity operations and therefore offer its customers a very convenient and fully digitized experience. Currently, Telenor has more than 210 million subscribers across 13 business units worldwide that OT can now supply with its cutting-edge core platform technology. OT will bring its premium solution set-up to Telenor affiliates worldwide and pave the way for full integration and customer journey optimization.
