G+D delivers eSIM solution to NTT

29/06/17

G+D Mobile Security has provided NTT DOCOMO with its eSIM management solution, enabling the launch of the world’s first Android tablet with an embedded SIM (eSIM) for consumers. According to G+D, this Android tablet is the first mass-market product worldwide which allows customers to benefit from the GSMA eSIM management technology.

G+D says: “An eSIM enabled device makes the handling at the Point-of-Sale (PoS) smooth, fast and easy. Subscribers will be freed from having to insert conventional SIM cards into their devices, thereby enhancing the overall user experience. G+D Mobile Security’s eSIM management platform AirOn, a GSMA RSP (Remote SIM Provisioning) phase 2 compliant solution, is connected to DOCOMO’s backend system.”

“This launch is a very important step forward for G+D Mobile Security and the entire telecommunications industry,” says Carsten Ahrens, CEO of G+D Mobile Security. “It proves that our investment in eSIM management technology is going to bear fruit for consumers since they are now able to benefit from this user-friendly technology.”

The RSP-compatible SIM card is already integrated into the tablet device during manufacturing. When purchasing the tablet at a DOCOMO retail store, it can be immediately linked to the customer in the DOCOMO backend by scanning a barcode on the outside of the device package. All the customer has to do is to switch on the tablet and follow a few installation steps, to be online and connected in a short amount of time. In the background, G+D Mobile Security’s AirOn service will automatically load DOCOMO’s eSIM profile onto the SIM.

G+D Mobile Security’s eSIM platform is based on the second version of the GSMA RSP specification.
