Thales and Google Scale eSIM Across Android Ecosystem

This market forecast indicates that there is a lot of interest and demand in making the most of eSIM, with providing the best user experience as a primary goal. To prepare for this digital era and in close partnership with Google, Thales’ eSIM Discovery solution manages eSIM activation on Android devices, essentially without the need for multiple clicks.


Thales eSIM Discovery: One-Click Cellular Activation eSIM Across Android Ecosystem

When eSIM devices are first turned on, they must locate the subscriber’s desired operator and download the appropriate subscription to activate cellular access. The Thales eSIM Discovery service makes this remote process as quick and easy as feasible, enabling a one-click activation.

Indeed, thanks to this solution, when a user initially subscribes to a new mobile network, a message will appear on the user’s mobile device screen telling them that a profile is ready for download. If accepted, the subscription is instantly downloaded. Alternatively, the user can check for a new profile through the mobile device setup wizard or settings menu. For the user, it is as simple as that to get cellular connectivity.

Furthermore, because the solution is cloud-based and designed for growth, Thales can guarantee global availability and scalability to support all Android devices and carriers around the world. To put it another way, it allows all eSIM profile activations wherever and anytime a device is turned on.

“Thales is pleased to work with Google to provide a standardized, simple, and secure way to activate eSIM subscriptions, making life easier for users and Android device makers. Thales’ eSIM Discovery service seeks to help and simplify clients’ eSIM adoption across devices and connectivity providers. Any mobile operator that currently uses our subscription management platform may already integrate with this solution and start offering a one-click eSIM activation experience to all users with an Android device,” said Eva Rudin, EVP Mobile Connectivity Solutions at Thales.
