Tata Communications, Micron accelerate IoT Deployment with cloud-based virtual SIM
28th Oct 2020

Tata Communications and Micron Technology, Inc. have joined forces to create a worldwide cellular-enabled connectivity solution that will simplify and accelerate largescale global deployment of internet of things (IoT) devices. This solution will be powered by a new virtual SIM, the world's first cloud-based embedded subscriber identity module (eSIM), which offers a flexible, scalable alternative to conventional physical SIM cards. The cloud-based eSIM will be enabled by Micron's Authenta Key Management Service (KMS), the industry's first silicon-based security-as-a-service platform for edge devices.

With this technology, the Tata Communications MOVE Global IoT Solution will offer a pervasive, end-to-end solution for zero-touch onboarding of connected IoT devices to cloud services across 200 countries and territories - backed by the company's relationships with more than 600 mobile network operators worldwide. The solution will unleash innovation in the expanding IoT services ecosystem, which is predicted to nearly triple in revenue by 2026 to $466 billion (ABI Research, IoT Market Tracker - Worldwide, 2Q 2020).

Tata Communications along with its subsidiaries is a leading global provider of A New World of Communications.
