Every day we find more and more phone companies that offer different options so we will go with them rather than their competitors. Technology is advancing at giant steps, and with the free market, we find ourselves with significant changes that affect us in different ways.
What is GigSky?
GigSky is a mobile phone company based in Palo Alto, CA. They facilitate and streamline mobile connectivity by offering a worldwide global service with SIM and eSIM cards. They have been expanding their headquarters for years to improve the user experiences and thus keeping us closer together.
They have a team of highly qualified executives and engineers who are dedicated to innovating the mobile phone sector. Why? Very simple, their goal is to always remain at the forefront of technology, offering good services with no problems that provide a differential value in contrast with their competitors.
In the GigSky web you can prove that they want to highlight from their services:
- Better user experiences
- Easy use
- Economically accessible
- Meets user needs
- Always forefront with clients
Who is GigSky?
The intention of GigSky is that, regardless of the place, time or situation in which you are, you may have global connection on demand on the mobile device. From any person who is traveling through America, even to an executive or company that travels on business to Japan.
Their intention is to eliminate high roaming costs that exist right now in telephone companies, while offering a better user experience on iOS, Android, Wearables, etc. They have designed a patented eSIM technology that gives the user global connection for a much more affordable price than we are used to when using roaming.
New GigSky Simless platform
This platform has been designed to create, implement and manage eSIM compatible products. The eSIM service currently works so that you may connect to the internet or receive calls with your usual phone company, but what if we add new technology to what it already offers?
The platform wants to offer a service full of possibilities: eSIM provisioning, remote management, customizable apps, access to the mobile global network, etc.
If we dig a little deeper and show the most technical part of the project, we will find the following characteristics:
- Strategic associations of chip and module manufacturers to support the designs with eSIM modules in removable ways (1FF, 2FF, 3FF, 4FF) or weldable (WLCSP, MFF2).
- Integrated eSIM firmware in memory for the most popular SoC designs, eliminating the need for eUICC hardware.
- Patented technology and support for industry efforts in standards related to iUICC / iSSP / iSIM.
- Trusted partner to help “future-proof” your design with technology that covers the entire evolution of the SIM card.
- Compatibility with GSMA SGP.02 specifications for M2M devices and with SGP.22 specifications for consumer devices.
- Customizable proxy agent integrated in the device to exchange commands remotely with the eSIM module.
- Complete management of the life cycle of eSIM profiles, including remote provisioning through push or pull mode.
- Network access with affordable and reliable coverage: 2G, 3G and 4G LTE in more than 180 countries and territories.
- Connectivity applications to provide the best experience possible to its users while streamlining the billing process.
- You can choose a proven connectivity partner with solutions already deployed on a variety of devices, from the largest consumer device manufacturers to major airlines.
- Your devices will connect to mobile networks anywhere in the world without Wi-Fi access to manage subscriptions (for example, downloading eSIM profiles).
Manage connectivity throughout a web portal that offers you control of boost profiles, including managing costs, rules for data usage, and alerts and notifications to keep you aware of your data usage.
