For testing networks with data management and swap services, Avnet and IDEMIA collaborate on the development of a future-proof cellular connectivity solution that meets the communication requirements for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 applications. The plug-and-play embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC) and Subscription Management Secure Routing (SM-SR) promises users the ability to choose a mobile network operator (MNO) without eventually having to manually change the embedded SIM card in their cellular connectivity-based devices, machines, and sensors deployed in the field. The pack includes an initial prepaid cellular connectivity allowance with a cellular carrier profile that has been downloaded to the eUICC during the manufacturing stage.
Avnet Silica will be the first division of Avnet to deploy the solution and will manage the delivery, integration and service operations for an estimated 10,000 industrial customers requiring cellular support services. The jointly developed Avnet Silica and IDEMIA solution is fully compliant with Avnet’s global IoT program that offers end-to-end solutions to guide customers from idea through every stage of their design. Avnet’s IoT smart solutions help organizations jumpstart development of IoT-enabled products and systems for industrial, retail, healthcare and other environments.
