eSIM Management for Consumer
eSIM is becoming a standard component in consumer devices with 2.4 billion smartphone connections expected globally by 2025. This scale offers Service Providers and MNOs the opportunity to move from a chip vendor centric transactional service model to true service ownership. Hosting your own eSIM management RSP solution delivers commercial and technical independence and ensures complete control over critical data and processes.
The independent SAS-SM certification of public clouds from MS Azure, Amazon AWS and Google Cloud Platform have substantially lowered the barrier to host your own RSP solution. The achelos SM-DP+ for profile provisioning and achelos SM-DS for automated profile discovery have been specifically designed to be efficiently deployed into your preferred environment. Not only are we an experienced partner to roll out your solution, but we can also easily tailor the software to enable a deep integration according to your unique requirements.
eSIM Management for M2M & IoT
Cellular connectivity is the ideal option to connect IoT devices that require mobility and security and with eSIM they can be remotely managed from zero-touch on-boarding to end of life. The achelos SM-SR software manages all installed MNO profiles on registered eSIMs while the achelos SM-DP software is used to remotely provision additional eSIM profiles. Both cloud native components are developed for high performance eSIM management services under the full control of the service provider and in compliance with the GSMA mandated security standards.
With the publication of GSMA SGP.31 a new architecture has become available, designed for the requirements of modern IoT deployments. It combines the proven SM-DP+ with a new back-end component, the eIM (eSIM Remote IoT Manager). Crucially, it supports light-weight IoT transport protocols for constraint devices and allows much easier integration that is device owner centric.
Beyong GSMA's basic functionality, managing eSIM capable devices from various OEMs and profiles from multiple CSPs requires another layer to orchestrate the atomic GSMA operations into complex procedures. The achelos IoT Orchestrator offers a flexible framework to manage eSIM devices and connectivity profiles of your IoT enterprise customers. It integrates with other SM-DP and SM-SR systems using standardised GSMA interfaces and proprietary APIs of other Connectivity Management Platforms and back-end systems. Based on business rules it enables fully automated connectivity management for critical use cases such as location based profile provisioning and activation. Its modular, flexible design makes it also the ideal solution to assume the role of the eIM within the GSMA SGP.31 architecture.
eSIM for Mobile Private Network (MPN)
Since the arrival of shared licenced spectrum models like CBRS, enterprises and other organisations are increasingly choosing to deploy private LTE and 5G networks, often coupled with the demand to have control over data storage and processing.
eSIM offers the best technology framework to manage the connectivity lifecycle of devices connected to an MPN due to its capability to host multiple, independent connectivity profiles, well-defined life cycle states and standardized management interfaces.
Our eSIM solutions are designed for fast-track deployment on any cloud, either as part of the MPN core stack from Infrastructure Providers or managed by the private network service provider, enabling localisation of sensitive data and profile generation and management processes.
