Dubai-based Workz Group has announced the launch of a new remote SIM which would provide a solution for mobile network operators. This move is being taken by the company in partnership with Truphone.
The solution offers operators in the UAE with the immediate capability to enable the owners of eSIM-enabled devices such as the new iPhone and Apple Watch to connect to their network without the need for a physical SIM card. eSIMs or embedded SIMs are a vital component of the cellular-powered Internet of Things (IoT) networks. These enable the devices to have extraordinary network connectivity without having to purchase a separate SIM card.

The company stated that users can simply turn on their devices and download the mobile plan of their choosing. This comes a few days after Apple announced making dual SIM capabilities available to customers. The inclusion of the eSIM technology in this month’s launch of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR has seen many market analysts predicting a rapid adoption of the technology worldwide.
Workz co-CEO Brad Taylor stated, “We’re delighted to introduce this ground-breaking new offering in conjunction with our partners Truphone. This solution is a key development in our consumer offerings to manage embedded and removable eSIMs.”
Steve Alder, chief business development officer at Truphone, added, “eSIM technology is the next big thing in telecommunications and the impact will be felt by everyone involved, from consumers to chipset manufacturers and all those in-between.”
They stated that this alliance with Truphone will create many rich and fresh opportunities for mobile network operators to collaborate with device manufacturers. The eSIM is probably the biggest development in the history of the SIM card since it was first invented.
