— On-demand Virtual SIM platform now available to OEM – manufacturers of smartphones, tablets & other connected devices to generate new recurring revenue stream from services
BARCELONA, Spain, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Simgo, the world’s first and only cloud controlled virtual SIM ("vSIM") platform that integrates into smartphones, announces the launch of SimgoINSIDE™ at the Mobile World Congress ("MWC") 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
SimgoINSIDE™ is a complete set of tools, SDKs and APIs that enables device and accessory manufacturers to integrate on-demand cellular connectivity using a cloud controlled vSIM directly into their products. With SimgoINSIDE™, device and accessory manufacturers can enable an entirely new class of cellular services and generate recurring revenue streams that extend well beyond the initial device sale.
"We’re excited to launch SimgoINSIDE™ at MWC, the world’s leading showcase for mobile technology," said Eyal Shmueli, Simgo’s co-founder and Chief Product Officer. "SimgoINSIDE™ is a bold step into the future of mobile connectivity. Developers and manufacturers alike can create transformational services and generate recurring revenues over the lifetime of their devices that was, until now, the exclusive province of the mobile operators. Not only will SimgoINSIDE™ give smartphone users the benefits of a regular SIM card, but manufacturers can additionally offer their customers unprecedented services such as roaming featuring toll-quality voice and 4G data services free from exorbitant carrier roaming fees among many others. As a result, manufacturers who integrate SimgoINSIDE™ will enjoy substantial competitive advantages: For some it’s about the opportunity to leverage the costs sunk in customer acquisition and brand equity. For others its about new hybrid product-service opportunities."
SimgoINSIDE™ devices are provisioned by a dynamic allocation of SIMs from the cloud selected by the manufacturers in accordance with their pre-defined rules, business logic and objectives so that they can provide the differentiated services customers demand.
Come check us out! We’re Simgo at MWC 2015, March 2-5, at Hall 5, booth 5F81.
