Mobvoi selects OT-Morpho's eSIM to connect Ticwatch S
Paris, 27 June 2017
OT-Morpho, world leader in digital security & identification technologies, today announces that Mobvoi, the leading Artificial Intelligence and smart watch company, has chosen its embedded SIM (eSIM) to connect Ticwatch S in compliance with GSMA Phase 2 eSIM standards for consumer devices.
The selection of OT-Morpho's eSIM by Mobvoi is further recognition of OT-Morpho's investment in innovation and of the dedicated services provided to its OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) customers in China. With the world's first GSMA security accreditation recently obtained for its SM-DP+* server and the certification previously obtained by its manufacturing facility for the production of eSIM, OT-Morpho's eSIM offers the most efficient, secure and transparent technology to serve cellular connectivity needs for wearable devices and to deliver a seamless and fully digital experience to end-users.
After acquiring their Ticwatch S, end-users will be able to activate a dedicated subscription for their watch. Once the necessary subscription registration and authentication process is completed, the subscription will be securely downloaded and activated over-the-air.
Thanks to OT-Morpho's eSIM, Ticwatch S owners will be able to use their watch to call, use data services and receive notifications, even if their smartphone is switched off or out of reach. Cellular connectivity will offer them much wider coverage and much higher service quality compared with the WiFi or Bluetooth connections previously used for most secondary connected devices.
"We are delighted to collaborate with OT-Morpho to bring eSIM innovation on Ticwatch. With this technology, we are opening a new era for our wearable devices, reducing dependencies with the phone and allowing the user to enjoy the convenience of standalone connectivity on their watch," declared Mobvoi Founder & CEO, ZhiFei Li.
"OT-Morpho is proud to deliver to Mobvoi the first eSIM for GSMA Phase 2 deployment. These new connectivity capabilities of Ticwatch S will complement the secure NFC services already enabled by our embedded Secure Element for the previous Ticwatch versions," said Yves Portalier, OT-Morpho, VP & General Manager – Telecom Business Unit, Morpho.
