VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Otono Networks today announces the launch of its new website, designed to highlight its suite of eSIM enablement, orchestration, and management solutions. The company's core platform, the Otono Platform, provides a variety of solutions for mobile network operators (MNOs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and IoT companies looking to navigate the complexities of integrating and deploying eSIM-enabled devices.
The Otono Platform is a modular and cloud-based global connectivity hub designed to offer mobile operators and OEMs a complete proxy integration solution for eSIM enablement and orchestration. The platform can connect any consumer or IoT device to any mobile network via remote provisioning of an operator profile. Once connected, Otono handles the orchestration of eSIM, from activation to inventory control to remote provisioning, making eSIM behave just as a traditional SIM would.
The Otono Platform also offers a single point of integration with a rich, API-first approach. For MNOs, this means we can integrate with any B/OSS model to avoid a major infrastructure development project. Otono can also integrate with any existing API set to establish a secure eSIM ecosystem without disruption to existing infrastructure.
Otono has already established itself as a leader in the eSIM space, with a successful eSIM-based consumer product in market. In 2014, Otono launched AlwaysOnline Wireless (AOW), the first consumer service offered exclusively through Apple SIM. Since then, Otono has been working with GSMA partners to develop eSIM solutions for M2M, IoT, and consumer applications. The Otono Platform is compatible with the GSMA Remote SIM Provisioning specification, and is prepared to adapt to new technology specifications in the future.
According to reports by IHS Markit and Transparency Market Research, there will be a high rate of growth for eSIM applications and adoption into various industries and technology niches. Currently, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications drive the most growth in the global market, but rapid growth is anticipated in the areas of consumer electronics, the automotive industry, wearables, and other IoT devices. By 2019, eSIM is expected to be common in smartphones, and the adoption of eSIM into handsets is projected to cause a large market growth spike. Between 2017 and 2025, a CAGR of 13.5% is expected for the global eSIM market, and reports show that by 2021 there will be nearly 1 billion eSIMs shipped worldwide.
With this massive influx of connected devices coming to market, it is essential for MNOs and OEMs to ensure they have the correct architecture in place to support these new technologies and products. OEMs adding eSIM to their products can leverage the Otono Platform to orchestrate the entire eSIM lifecycle from activation and provisioning to real-time data metering. MNOs can partner with Otono to enable eSIM on their networks, tackle the challenges of updating their B/OSS, and remove the complexities of integration. With Otono, anyone deploying eSIM-based devices to their networks can do so quickly, securely, and using minimal resources.
