AT&T Selects G&D for Worldwide M2M SIM Management

AT&T has selected Giesecke & Devrient's AirOn technology to manage subscription credentials on embedded M2M SIMs over-the-air.

This will enable AT&T to provide manufacturers of connected consumer and machine-to machine (M2M) devices with seamless access to a global platform for service management, application development, professional services and product support.

"With the introduction of our new single worldwide SIM solution and the ability to provision over the air, we're giving our device makers the convenience of coverage around the globe, while also enabling enhanced global services like local telecom," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices, AT&T.

"We're seeing a trend towards integrating SIM cards at an earlier point in the value chain, when mobile devices are produced," said Dr. Klaus Vedder, Giesecke & Devrient's Group Senior Vice President. "By utilizing AirOn technology in its single SIM offering, AT&T will be able to supply customers with the service flexibility they demand."
