Jola has become a global IoT MVNO, providing the UK’s first multi-network eSIM built for the channel. eSIMs give MSPs and resellers ultimate choice and control, whilst solving the biggest mobile data problem facing their end users – how to automatically connect any device to any network, anywhere in the world.
GSMA-compliant eSIMs give Jola partners a truly un-steered, multi-network roaming connection, ensuring the customer is always getting the best technical and commercial solution, whatever happens in the market. Network-agnostic eSIMs offer an alternative to MNO contract lock-ins and save customers the pain and expense of swapping out SIMs.
eSIM key to unlocking IoT opportunities
Adrian Sunderland, Jola’s CTO commented, “eSIM or eUICC technology is the key to unlocking the IoT opportunity for the channel. eSIMs can be embedded into devices or delivered as a traditional removeable SIM. Operator profiles on the eUICC can be securely and remotely updated over-the-air. Instead of swapping plastic SIM cards, profiles are downloaded and managed on a device as needed. In the eSIM model, a device is ready to deploy anywhere network coverage exists. If a device moves and crosses networks, its profile can be updated quickly and securely.”
Jola has deployed a UK-based, resilient MVNO mobile core network, with global connectivity to over 450 networks and local connectivity with all four UK mobile networks. UK-based interconnects and breakout ensure the traffic stays in the UK.
Jola worked closely with Simfony to provide the MVNO network elements. The eUICC technology is powered by iBASIS.
Increased performance without network steering or prioritisation applied
Joachim de Wild, Simfony CEO said “We are glad to partner with Jola, because of their ever-growing partner base, impressive reputation and proven track record. We have implemented a UK-based instance of our core network enablers to enable local breakout and increase performance while the eSIMs are still able to freely roam into all UK cellular networks without any network steering or prioritisation applied.”
