TeliaSonera Selects OT To Connect Samsung Gear S2
Oberthur Technologies (OT), a leading global provider of embedded security software products, services and solutions today announced that TeliaSonera, the leading operator in the Nordic and Baltic countries, selected OT’s M-Connect solution to allow its subscribers to remotely download subscriptions for their Samsung Gear S2. Embedding OT’s DakOTa eUICC in its Gear S2, Samsung will be among the first consumer device makers to offer connected watches able to connect to a cellular network.
In compliance with GSMA’s Consumer Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) initiative, OT and Samsung will enable TeliaSonera to remotely and securely connect Gear S2 to their mobile network. OT’s end-to-end solution is designed to ensure full privacy and security for MNO credentials.
In TeliaSonera sales points, a voucher will be issued to the customer with the subscription profile identifier. The user will only need to scan the QR code with a dedicated Samsung application on their smartphone. The new subscription profile will automatically be downloaded to their Gear S2, connected via Bluetooth to the smartphone. Once the dedicated subscription profile has been activated on the Gear S2, the user will be able to use it to make calls, receive notifications and use data services directly, even if the smartphone is off or out of reach.
“With this solution we will be able to extend our subscription offer to a new generation of connected devices and allow our customers to be even more connected – on their terms” says Jesper Hedblom, Chief Commercial Officer, TeliaSonera.
“We are delighted to have been selected by TeliaSonera. With the combination of Samsung’s Gear S2 and OT’s DakOTa eUICC and innovative voucher service, OT and Samsung will enable TeliaSonera to provide their subscribers with a very convenient and fully digitized customer experience” said Marek Juda, Managing Director of OT's Connected Device Makers business.
”At Samsung, we aim to meet and anticipate consumers’ needs and the development of the first GSMA-compliant eSIM is further example of our pursuit of meaningful innovation” said Yunsang Park, Senior Vice President of R&D Office, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to introduce Samsung Gear S2 3G classic as not only a starting point for more devices to be connected globally, but as a step forward in our commitment to support the development of the IoT market”.

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers, today announced its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), a single white box routing platform that enables carriers to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload. Today’s networks, whether 3G, 4G or 5G, are under pressure to provide increased bandwidth in support of LTE and its frequency combinations, and reduce latency for network interaction, resulting in a continual need to increase capacity for traffic transported through the core of the network.
