Bridge Alliance and the Global M2M Association (GMA) announced a new partnership and the live demonstration of their advanced Multi-Domestic Service, a single global connectivity management platform including an eUICC SIM, which can be used in 77 markets throughout their combined footprints.
The Multi-Domestic Service will be demonstrated in conjunction with the Samsung Knox Enterprise Billing capabilities by AIS and Taiwan Mobile on behalf of Bridge Alliance and the GMA at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
The partnership will provide a seamless customer experience with worldwide coverage and superior quality of service, allowing device manufacturers, enterprises, and service providers to easily deploy their Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services, the groups said.
The Multi-Domestic Service is a global solution to address the local opportunities for higher bandwidth applications and new business models. It significantly reduces barriers for enterprises, keeping total cost of ownership low while maximising quality of service. The Multi-Domestic Service is the world’s first alliance-to-alliance remote provision based on GSMA specifications.
GMA and Bridge Alliance leverage technology providers including Ericsson (connectivity management) and Gemalto (On-Demand Subscription Manager and eUICC) to enable a consistent customer experience. The two alliances have a complementary footprint: Bridge Alliance members cover 35 markets from Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and the GMA’s seven operator groups cover 42 markets in Europe, North America, Africa as well as Asia.
