Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS), a leading provider of cellular IoT chips and modules, and Eseye, a leader in IoT connectivity solutions, have joined forces to deliver the world’s first universal iSIM (integrated eUICC) connectivity solution targeting the GSMA eSIM M2M standard. The solution will reduce the complexity and cost of IoT deployments providing assured and continuous connectivity across multiple countries, carriers, and networks, without changing or adding physical (e)SIMs. The simple yet resilient solution ensures enterprises their devices will remain connected – with a high level of security and consistent quality of service – for maximum device uptime, even if underlying carrier contracts change or expire. The solution also brings device design advantages, including increased security, reduced power consumption, and reduced space and cost due to fewer components on the PCB.
The combined Sequans/Eseye solution provides enterprise customers with coverage insurance by allowing a company to activate the integrated eSIM and switch carriers at any time, either pre- or post-deployment. Eseye’s award-winning AnyNet+ eSIM and IoT Connectivity Service provides extensive connections to regional carriers, delivering nearly 100% uptime to devices anywhere in the world. With easySWAP and AnyNet in one solution, businesses can extend their asset lifetimes and improve ROI by connecting to alternative connectivity providers dynamically, with no interruption in service.
easySWAP with AnyNet connectivity can benefit customers both pre- and post-deployment:
The solution offers MNO customizable connectivity over-the-air (OTA) through a remote SIM provisioning platform, with flexibility to choose from a range of North American networks to enable localized connection across the USA and Canada. This ensures any IoT customer can enjoy a smooth operation of their integrated eSIM solution, as well as providing access to further roaming and localized capability across the world to ensure any IoT deployment complies with global regulations.
“Our collaboration with Eseye has resulted in an elegant solution for enterprises who are now relieved of the burden of managing multiple connectivity providers and all the complexity that goes with it,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “With easySWAP, an IoT business can switch to another network quickly and seamlessly, and we are very pleased to offer this universal connectivity solution.”
“This ground-breaking joint solution with Sequans gives enterprise customers easy access to Eseye’s award-winning and highly resilient global connectivity service, allowing them to reduce initial costs by eliminating the need for a physical SIM, and by creating huge downstream ROI by being able to switch networks to avoid roaming restrictions,” said Nick Earle, Eseye CEO. “Sequans easySWAP with Eseye’s advanced eSIM and AnyNet Connectivity solution transforms how enterprises deploy IoT devices anywhere in the world at scale with complete connectivity assurance that delivers near 100% device uptime.”
Sequans and Eseye will be extending the end-to-end solution to selected customers beginning in March.
