USA based AT&T has selected AirOn to enhance its single worldwide SIM service. Through this new provisioning, manufacturers of machine to machine (M2M) devices will have access to a global platform for service management, application development, professional services and product support.
The AT&T single worldwide SIM solution along with a service management platform, AT&T Control Center powered by Jasper Wireless, equips M2M and connected device service providers with the ability to manage global wireless device deployment and operations across markets with diagnostic tools, process automation, and AT&T billing solutions.
The AirOn technology, provided by Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), is an end-to-end solution that enables the management of subscription credentials on embedded M2M SIMs over-the-air as an element of the AT&T system.
Where available, AT&T's single worldwide SIM solution, announced earlier this year, will offer corporations the benefit of using a local or in-country network while abroad, resulting in more effective distribution of their connected consumer devices and (M2M) products.
"With the introduction of our new single worldwide SIM solution and the ability to provision over the air, we're giving our device makers the convenience of coverage around the globe, while also enabling enhanced global services like local telecom," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices, AT&T.
