The Launch of PLUS+, TEAL's GSMA-certified eSIM Platform


Global network connectivity platform TEAL prides itself on being able to connect every thing, everywhere. (Not just “everything” in this case; every “thing” in terms of IoT, or the Internet of Things.) With the click of a button, TEAL gives users the freedom to choose the network they desire within one eSIM platform they control. (i.e. connecting any IoT device on more than 3,500 global cellular networks)

At MWC Barcelona 2023, TEAL announced the launch of their first eSIM solution built specifically for mobile network operators (MNOs) and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs): TEAL PLUS+.

PLUS+ — a cloud-native Subscription Manager Data Preparation Plus (SDMP+) solution created to accelerate MNO and MVNO carrier eSIM strategies — has been in the works for several years. It’s been supporting private LTE network deployments from Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) alliance clients (now also referred to as the OnGo Alliance).

But now, with a full security certification, TEAL PLUS+ is ready to support much larger, consumer-focused public cellular network carriers via TEAL’s patented technologies.

According to TEAL, its PLUS+ “provides a fresh take on the traditional legacy platforms” and was from-the-ground-up designed to provide self-service functionality for MNO eSIM, SIM and iSIM teams. What are the perks? Real control and flexibility while delivering profile and data generation services (with zero setup fees, notably) at approximately half the operating cost of competing industry solutions.

With PLUS+ expected to increase eSIM adoption worldwide, Robert Hamblet, TEAL’s CEO, is confident in how it will resolve challenges old and new.

“This is about empowering the 750 underserved mobile networks that have struggled to deliver eSIM services to both consumer and IoT use cases,” Hamblet said. “There are chip manufacturers that pretend to be software companies, and they don't understand the hurdles of launching an eSIM-ready 4G, 5G, or even 6G networks. We do, and we are here to solve all of that for the network operators.”

Hamblet’s confidence is well-founded, as TEAL is the first U.S-headquartered company to receive certification from the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association’s (GSMA) Security Accreditation Scheme for SMDP+. This certifies that TEAL’s eSIM tech meets or exceeds the latest in GSMA security requirements; such certification is only granted to platforms that meet the highest of security and functionality standards.

“We are so proud of our team, who has completed this multi-year effort of building a leading-edge technology platform,” said Michael Johnston, TEAL’s CBO. “We have now passed one of the most stringent security certifications in the world given by the GSMA. We see this product launch as the start of a new acceleration in 5G subscriber activity."
