An interview with our headline sponsor

Taisys Technologies is focused on enabling secure mobile solutions for the telecom, finance, and government sectors. They are a pioneer in the e-SIM field with the launch of the slimduet platform - interconnecting all stakeholders in the mobile ecosystem by strengthening and deepening connectivity capabilities realized by e-SIM technology.

In the run up to their first MVNOs World Congress we spoke to Taisys about their solutions for MVNOs.

How does the slimduet platform benefit MVNOs?

The slimduet platform creates an alliance amongst MVNOs in which total cost of ownership is reduced, process of wholesale negotiations simplified, real-time distribution enabled.

  • Reduce opex with the virtualization of distribution network and SIM cards - saving costs on logistics, warehousing, inventory, retail management and physical SIM production.
  • Minimize capex spending on roaming service platform.
  • Leverage real-time distribution and alliance network without heavy capex investment.
  • Expand addressable market and market differentiation.
What are the key benefits the e-SIM will bring to the MVNO ecosystem?

e-SIM is the fundamental technology to build up interconnection amongst industry players, forging horizontal alliances amongst MVNOs, making MVNOs the most valuable stakeholder in the ecosystem.

How will these benefits be translated to the end consumer?

Consumers enjoy more personalized services - manage multiple IMSIs for multiple services on one device, including IoT device connectivity. Furthermore, consumers are able to choose the best fit subscription based on their need and enjoy interoperable services, without undergoing the entire administrative process of subscribing to new services.
