We have been working on the development and deployment of a full set of subscription management offers like On-Demand Connectivity to ensure that our customers can seamlessly connect billions of machines and devices.
Watch this short 3-minute video to understand the challenges faced in providing
always-on data connectivity to such diverse and mobile objects as cars and tablets:
The renewed industry interest in the pre-installed SIM in consumer tablets (such as the new Apple SIM), is positive news for the development of new connected devices beyond the traditional mobile handset. The potential of this overall market is huge, with cellular-enabled tablets representing only 25% of the total tablet sales* today and a wide range of consumer and industrial machines getting connected to new digital services.
In order to help our customers to best manage their developments in this new flourishing market, and more broadly, enable the Internet of Things, Gemalto has invested and developed its On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) solution as an easy-to-deploy, single-contract business service. This solution provides instant mobile broadband connectivity to newly connected devices, everywhere, right out of the box. Already a very important application for the M2M markets, and technically ready for consumer markets, ODC helps operators assessing new short-term data rental models and original device manufacturers looking to offer a
more flexible customer connectivity experience throughout the device's entire lifecycle.
