Workz and its Cloud eSIM Platform Surpass 100 Partner Telcos

By

Let’s talk about eSIMs and telcos, readers.

Part and parcel with the adoption of eSIM technologies are significant advantages for telecommunications companies, or telcos. The long-story-short of it can be boiled down to “streamlining operations and enhancing user experiences.” The long-story-a-bit-longer version is still simple: For telcos, eSIMs reduce a.) tons of logistical complexities, and b.) higher costs often associated with physical SIM cards. eSIMs also enable ideally frictionless provisioning of flexible services, plus improved customer activation processes. They align with ESG goals by removing the need of physical SIMs (i.e. waste reduction), and they open new markets for teams enthusiastic about IoT (especially for those managing large fleets of mobile or IoT devices that need reliable connectivity).

Overall, eSIMs are secure, highly compatible with other technologies, and they facilitate more competitive pricing for telco leaders looking to future-proof investments in mobile infrastructure.

This segues well into news regarding Workz, a subscriber solutions provider that delivers a full suite of eSIM solutions and specializes in cloud-based solutions for mobile network operators (MNOs).

Workz has previously been described as “one of only five providers worldwide to be certified by the GSMA to manage the complete eSIM lifecycle from production to subscription management across the consumer and M2M/IoT markets,” so the following Workz news makes a ton of sense:

Workz has officially announced that it reached over 100 partner telcos on its latest cloud eSIM platform across its three sites in the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East.

According to the announcement itself, “This milestone signifies a significant leap forward in eSIM adoption by operators and aligns with industry forecasts predicting the technology to be present in over 6 billion devices by 2025.”

Additionally, Counterpoint Research called Workz’s cloud eSIM platform “an important innovation” that simplifies eSIM orchestration for IoT devices; this was great to read, given the growing diversity of eSIM devices (and their applicable use cases) and how they’ll address challenges posed by resource management and how telcos maintain service reliability.

“2024 was a fantastic year for eSIMs and Workz,” said Tom Malmros, Workz CEO. “The team has worked hard to support operators make the most of this growth opportunity in consumer and IoT markets. We are keen to continue this momentum in 2024 by delivering new features that allow our partners to evolve their business, add subscribers, save time, and increase reliability."
