In a bid to firmly establish itself as Europe’s most connected operator and cement its reputation as one to watch State-owned 120-year young operator JT Group has joined forces with 1oT to launch an innovative eSIM solution at this year’s MWC. This eSIM solution is set to open up a new level of global connectivity for IoT service providers.
Designed specifically for the needs of start-ups and small and medium-sized IoT service providers, this new 1oT eSIM, technically known as eUICC, will enable them to operate in multiple regions worldwide. What’s more, through this partnership with JT those customers will now also benefit from JT’s extensive worldwide roaming network.
This eSIM is set to simplify and revolutionise the market for these users by enabling a ‘virtual swap’ in the air between pre-negotiated operator services without the need to physically change the SIM card. It will also leverage the global roaming deals provided by JT opening up access to over 700 of JT’s partner networks potentially making it the world’s most flexible SIM.
Graham Hart-Ives, JT’s Head of IoT Sales, said: “We have continued to grow our offering over recent months and we are delighted that the work we have done to build a strong position in this market is bringing substantial benefits to our forward-thinking and long-term partners, like 1oT. This is a great example of leveraging partnerships and innovating using latest SIM technology to jointly provide the best possible product for customers.”
1oT is an operator independent global connectivity provider which handles the complexity of working with multiple operators in different regions for IoT service providers and device makers.
Märt Kroodo, founder and CEO of 1oT said: “This launch is an exciting next step in SIM technology which provides vastly improved convenience for customers. This partnership of JT’s innovation and flexibility in working with different partners and our expertise will together deliver connectivity products for IoT which greatly improve customers experience and take the market forward.”
