Hosting your own eSIM Management RSP solution

read our Do-It-Yourself Cookbook to learn how




eSIM 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 for 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 onboarding 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 components are compliant with GSMA SGP.02, the initial eSIM standard addressing M2M use cases.

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 device owner centric integration.

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 Private Network

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 a Private Network 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 network's core stack from the Solution Provider or managed by the private network service provider, enabling the localisation of highly sensitive data.

Why achelos?

We started with the development of a hardware agnostic RSP product back in 2015 with the mission to enable ecosystem players to build and operate their own RSP service independently of traditional SIM and infrastructure vendors. With the first release of the M2M solution in 2016 and the successive launch of DP+ for consumer devices and the Orchestration platform for M2M, we offer a wide range of off-the-shelf products as well as the expertise to build fully tailored solutions.

The microservices architecture combined with cutting-edge open-source software technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, PostgreSQL and ELK, to name a few, enable fully automated script-based system deployment and configuration in any cloud environment, private or public. References of successful GSMA SAS-SM certification with our RSP software, both on-site and cloud (MS Azure), confirm the quality of achelos products and the capabilities of our development team.

Tele2 IoT orchestrates communication between devices and machines, to help you launch successful IoT solutions.
At Tele2 IoT we focus on what we do best; deliver global connectivity as well as enable efficient management and Value Added Services needed within IoT. We are very happy to work in a close partnership with achelos, their speed and flexibility are perfectly aligned with our core values. Our best-of-breed partners contribute with their area of excellence, to give the customers the best IoT solution for their needs. Together we make IoT happen.

CAIRON serves since more than 10 years the telecommunications industry worldwide. We steadily developed to a full-range solution and services provider with a constantly growing portfolio including all types of cards (SIM, vouchers, memory) and packaging, but also value added services (SOS credit, VoIP) and a number of other solutions. Our partner-based business model allows us to be extremely flexible and always find the right solution or product to accompany the growth of our customers. Since 2016 we work with achelos on an independent eSIM Subscription Management solution.

Through the partnership with achelos, ConnectedYou (CY) successfully meet a critical milestone in our vision of creating a seamless and independent orchestration layer for IoT connectivity. achelos’ RSP solution powered with CY’s IoT service platform allows MNOs and MVNOs to quickly get on-board our eco-system, enabling a plethora of connectivity options for CY’s customers. IoT connectivity is chosen by customers based on unique combinations of geography, price, time-to-market and network stability and the only way to enable open choices is to decouple connectivity from the hardware - which is exactly what we have achieved.
