Mobicom Mongolia selects Valid’s turnkey eSIMplicity Platform to connect consumer eSIM devices
Madrid, Spain, November 23, 2021 – Mobicom, the largest mobile operator in Mongolia, has chosen Valid’s eSIMplicity platform to allow Mobicom subscribers to enjoy the eSIM capability of their smartphones and experience the digitalization of network connectivity service. Valid provides Mobicom with a turnkey subscription management solution to manage the creation, storage, personalization and download of their subscribers’ profiles into eSIM devices.
Valid, one of the leading players in the eSIM industry, will help Mobicom to evaluate the eSIM technology readiness in the Mongolian market. This is the first Valid’s eReach subscription management platform sold with an eSIMplicity model in Asia.
According to GSMA in 4 years, there will be 2.4 billion eSIM smartphone connections worldwide. With that in mind, Mobicom decided to immediately get ready to support the eSIM technology in Mongolia, while offering their consumers a convenient way to connect their different devices, via a simple QR code.
Compliant with GSMA latest specifications, Valid’s eReach subscription management services objective is to give MNOs an interoperable and efficient solution to onboard their end users’ eSIM devices. Partnered with Valid’s eSIMplicity, a business model that gives MNOs an entry level subscription management service by mutualizing Valid’s SAS certified Data Center resources across multiple customers, and with no impact on its own IT & network infrastructure, Mobicom was given the opportunity to try and evaluate the technology as well as the market return on digital experience, at an early stage.
“Mobicom wanted to be able to start offering eSIM services to its loyal subscribers as soon as possible at an affordable cost in order to evaluate the appeal from the local market, to better forecast the potential demand for the eSIM subscription services, and to plan future investments. We were looking for a reliable partner, flexible enough to accommodate the financial constraints of the project, while respecting the commercial launch lead-times. Valid was able to meet our needs” confirmed Yanjinlkham.E, Director of Marketing, at Mobicom.
