achelos enables Workz’ SAS certified eSIM service in Microsoft Azure
Mobile IoT solutions provider, Workz Group announced in August 2021 that it is the first eSIM provider to be awarded the GSMA certification for its remote subscription management (RSP) solution deployed in the public cloud.
Workz received the certification under the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme (SAS) to offer both consumer and M2M/IoT eSIM management services with data hosted at Microsoft Azure France.
The newly certified site will provide geo-redundancy to mobile network providers across accredited data centres in Europe and Dubai.
“Our new eSIM cloud platform and SaaS offering is the first solution to deliver complete flexibility, scalability and low cost of ownership for network providers. Combined with GSMA certification guaranteeing full security and interoperability, and Microsoft Azure’s hosting assuring minimum uptime of 99.95% we believe this is the most attractive way forward for MNOs” says Workz CEO, Tor Malmros.
We are proud to be enabling partner of Workz Group with our cloud-native implementation of the RSP product.
