Oasis Smart SIM Showcases eSIM Solution for IoT Connected Devices
During the recent ARM TechCon event, Oasis Smart SIM demonstrated its embedded Software SIM, which allows users to embed universal subscriber identity module (USIM) functionalities in devices and machines without the constraint of having to integrate removable or built-in SIM hardware, and providing seamless connectivity and remote provisioning of IoT smart devices.

The eSIM Operating System runs securely on an ARM-based processor and works in tandem with eOS Subscription Manager, the company's associated remote SIM provisioning and lifecycle-management platform. The platform enables the device to be securely provisioned and managed with multiple network subscriptions.

"Oasis has been an expert in the field of SIM and USIM operating systems for years, through its trademarked HeliOS product, and our technology is embedded in more than 200 million devices via standard removable SIM cards or embedded M2M modules," said Olivier Leroux, the company's CEO, in a prepared statement. "Our motto being to reshape the SIM business, our '2 clicks connectivity' solution based on a SoftSIM application and its complimentary remote subscription manager is clearly meeting this ambition. It embeds the USIM functionality and more generally IoT connectivity directly into devices, avoiding the use of removable SIM hardware, which increases the manufacturing costs and time-to-market for device makers."

The complimentary subscription-management platform, enabling users to remotely switch networks and manage the eSIM lifecycle, is intended to ease customers' logistics issues, Leroux explained, allowing them the freedom to choose and switch cellular operators as they see fit. "This is the way we reshape our ecosystem," he said in the statement.
