Workz Dubai Produces MEA eSIM for Government Smart Project

By Ken Briodagh November 28, 2018

According to a recent announcement, Workz Group, a mobile and IoT company that provides SIM technology and remote provisioning solutions, has partnered with an African network operator and large African government to implement embedded SIM-enabled water meters. The country-wide smart project, which is expected to be launched in early 2019, is part of a long-term government objective to improve the health conditions of its population by providing accessible drinking water to the masses.

According to a World Health Organization report, since 2018, more than 2,000 people have died in Africa due to cholera. This project will track leakages, measure consumption, monitor energy and usage patterns in real time via the use of the eSIM technology. This live data will allow for faster analysis as well as immediate and preemptive action to be taken on the water meters and systems.

eSIMs, a key component in the Internet of Things (IoT), are SIM chips embedded within a smart device that enable remote management of devices over a cellular network. The technology is expected to support the connectivity of smart cities, smart meters, eHealth, smart cars, fleet management, security systems, and more, that are adopting IoT concepts to drive greater cost-efficiencies and effectiveness.

“We are delighted to be a part of such a large-scale government venture that uses new eSIM technology to make such a significant impact on people’s quality of life,” said Tor Malmros, co-CEO, Workz. “Our aim as a company is to provide quality and rapidly deployable solutions and, alongside our team in Africa, we have been able to quickly get this project off the ground and make it a full-scale reality.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
