SICAP, a Device Entitlement Server (DES) and Oasis Smart SIM -, an industry leader in remote eSIM activation technology, announce partnership to offer cutting-edge device entitlement service to mobile network operators (MNOs). MNOs will now be able to provide a simplified multi-device interconnection feature to the end consumers, which will become essential asCounterpoint Research states 100% smartwatches are expected to be equipped with eSIM by 2025.
Based on strong interlock, collaboration, and aligned vision of the future, this strategic alliance will enable MNOs to offer a relevant and simplified eSIM activation journey for all types of consumer devices. This will ensure growth of Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) and VoLTE (Voice over LTE) adoption boost for MNOs, along with an increased speed to market. Additionally, users will be able to activate and manage their eSIM-enabled companion devices with just a few clicks.
SICAP’s DES authenticates and provisions rich communications services (RCS) entitlements for devices as well as new operating systems such as Wear OS. It also provides MNOs and MVNOs with advanced management of services such as VoLTE and VoWiFi (Voice-Over WiFi). With this feature integrated into Oasis’ Digital Connect Platform with a cloud-native approach, Oasis Smart SIM will further enable MNOs to provide enhanced digital experiences for their eSIM users, faster time-to-market and offer the right level of service reliability and scalability.
Olivier Leroux, CEO and President of Oasis Smart SIM, said "With consumers of today always on-the-go, simplified connectivity for all their devices is a prerequisite. Our partnership with SICAP will help us address this need with Entitlement Service to offer an automated user experience. We believe this will enable our consumers to be better prepared for digital futures where mobile and companion devices without physical SIM cards will become increasingly common.”
Elena Loghin, CEO at SICAP, stated that“Partnering with Oasis Smart SIM is strategic for SICAP. Our entitlement platform, DES, will allow for much faster go-to-market of new VoNR/VoLTE smartphones and smartwatches, coupled with a much broader selection of devices. This will increase subscriber satisfaction and ultimately boost ARPU growth. It’s a win-win situation for all parties.”
The pairing of Oasis Smart SIM’s Digital Connect Platform with the SICAP’s device entitlement service will provide MNOs with an end-to-end solution which addresses future needs for a large range of companion devices. Key challenges for MNOs and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are cost and complexity of integrating eSIM in companion devices. This cloud-native approach in our integrated entitlement server architecture allows them to access the technology without significant upfront costs, making it more about integration than infrastructure.
