Bridge Alliance and the Global M2M Association (GMA) today announce their 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 the Mobile World Congress 2016, Innovation City, Stand A11 in Hall 3.
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 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 maximizing quality of service. The Multi-Domestic Service is
the world’s first alliance-to-alliance remote provision based on GSMA specifications.
Before this collaboration, multinational corporations planning to roll out connected devices worldwide faced many hurdles, including regulatory issues, fragmented deployment interfaces, and multiple testing. The new partnership between GMA and Bridge Alliance will solve these issues by putting in place robust and secure technical capabilities to simplify multi-network M2M and IoT deployment for multinational customers in the retail, healthcare, consumer
electronics, transportation, automotive and energy sectors on a worldwide scale. GMA and Bridge Alliance leverage technology providers including Ericsson (connectivity management) and Gemalto (On-Demand Subscription Manager and eUICC) to enable a truly consistent customer experience.
