Saratoga, Calif., September 19, 2019 — MATRIXX Software, an innovation powerhouse committed to transforming global commerce, is advancing the rapid adoption of eSim (embedded Subscriber Identity Module) for a number of operators worldwide. Today, eSIM is the only globally-backed remote SIM specification for consumer devices. eSIM will create a significant business opportunity for operators. Early adopters, such as Swisscom, Tata Communications and Yoodo, are leveraging MATRIXX Digital Commerce to support their eSIM initiatives as they advance business opportunities for monetizing IoT (Internet of Things).
With eSIM, operators can enable remote SIM provisioning of any mobile device. This is a significant step towards expansive growth in the IoT market. In fact, GSMA Intelligence forecasts that the total number of IoT connections (cellular and non-cellular) globally will reach 25.2 billion in 2025, up from 6.3 billion in 2016.
As 5G ramps up, and the eSIM standard is supported by more device manufacturers, connected consumer IoT devices are going mainstream. Telco providers using MATRIXX and eSIM are enabling new monetization models for IoT with a sophisticated digital commerce platform. The platform provides services for digital onboarding, balance sharing across devices, consolidated or split charging across multiple profiles on a single device, real-time usage dashboards and one-click data top-ups.
eSIM provides some key advantages to mobile operators such as:
- Simpler device setup without the need to insert or replace a SIM card
- Devices that can operate independently of a tethered smartphone with their own subscriptions
- A range of new, enhanced mobile-connected devices such as watches and headsets
“We believe eSim is going to be a major driver for new business initiatives in IoT with a significant role in expanding markets and growing service consumption,” said Marc Price, MATRIXX Software global CTO. “MATRIXX Software is committed to helping telcos worldwide provide the solutions that disrupt the industry with customer-focused innovation.”
