It’s the first time that the Thais can experience the full freedom of communication thanks to this innovative offer: even if users have their mobile phone at home, they can keep the same habits (make calls, send texts…). It’s a scalable solution to support TrueMove H in easily on-boarding additional eSIM-capable devices.
“The technology, which allows SIMs to be remotely programmed without the need to replace physical SIM cards, is already starting to appear in some devices, and is poised to become the new standard for mobile subscription management. We thank TrueMove H for choosing IDEMIA for this critical transformation and look forward to further developing and inspiring future innovations”, explains Fabien Jautard, Executive Vice-President for Mobile Operators activities at IDEMIA.
“This technology revolutionizes the use of our smartphones and devices such as wearables, which can be activated and managed effortlessly, over-the-air, anytime and anywhere. Thanks to IDEMIA’s subscription management solution, we are the first mobile operator in Thailand to support IoT/M2M trends, which will enable exponential increase in connectivity and services in the near future”, Mr. Tuantong Srivichian, Director for Retail Business, True Corporation Plc. of TrueMoveH.
