Finnish roaming solutions provider UROS and telecommunications company iBasis have teamed up to be the first to remotely offer a user subscription for connected mobile devices.

What this means in practice is that UROS‘ Goodspeed mobile hotspots, Goodspeed enabled smartphones and other connected UROS IoT devices can automatically update to a local mobile operator subscription whenever the user crosses a border, all using a single SIM card.

This is made possible by so-called eSIM technology, that enables SIM cards to be reprogrammed, together with UROS’ own patented Internet of Things (IoT) platform, which allows it to monitor and choose the most appropriate connectivity for a mobile device.

“We believe that combining the standardised eSIM technology together with our own IoT platform provides the most advanced and reliable solution for our corporate and mobile operator customers,” says Gerrit Jan Konijnenberg, CEO of UROS.

“The eSIM solution will be available in smartphones and Goodspeed mobile hotspot devices, as well as future IoT devices globally,” Konijnenberg continues. “The new ZTE V8 Lite smartphone with Goodspeed Roaming is an example of a product leveraging this new solution.”
