On Tuesday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, AT&T announced a platform service featuring a single SIM offering that expands global coverage. The SIM, along with a service management platform powered by Jasper Wireless, arms connected and M2M device manufacturers with the ability to manage global wireless device deployment and operations across markets with diagnostic tools and smart process automation.
Today, device manufacturers across the globe are wirelessly enabling thousands of new connected and M2M device  applications in myriad of industries, but their basic, global deployment needs are the same: they require broad, readily accessible wireless and mobile broadband coverage in each target market, and a wireless single SIM solution suitable for scalable deployment across the world markets, says AT&T (Dallas, Texas, USA).
“Lessons learned by market leading manufacturers suggest that a single carrier supplier with a single SIM solution is often preferred over working directly with multiple regional wireless carriers,” said Glenn Lurie, president of emerging segments, AT&T. “Managing multiple relationships becomes increasingly complex and costly with each additional target market.”
AT&T provides connected and M2M device support and services to many device manufacturers and global exporters of wireless-enabled equipment. AT&T has certified and supports nearly 1,200 varieties of connected devices, with labs dedicated to bringing new devices to market, global roaming and integrated SIM provisioning, billing and reporting tools.
