G+D to work with China Unicom on eSIM innovation in China

G+D a major name in digital security, financial platforms and currency technology, and operator China Unicom have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at this year’s MWC to establish a strategic partnership in the areas of eSIM technology and services.

China Unicom has a strong market presence in China, especially in the fast-growing IoT sector. By partnering with G+D, a leading company in eSIM development, technology and management, China Unicom aims to drive the market introduction of eSIMs in various vertical segments. 

Both companies are responding to the growing demand for technologies and services that support IoT scenarios. As G+D points out, billions of devices, machines, sensors and systems will soon be connected to the internet in real time and the eSIM and remote SIM provisioning, also known as eSIM management, will play a key role in this, making the deployment and life cycle management of IoT solutions simple and efficient.

Fengwei Chen, Deputy General Manager from Unicom Vsens, says: "China Unicom has been approved to deploy eSIM applications in the fields of wearable devices, IoT, laptops, and tablets, becoming the only domestic operator supporting all developed areas in China. China Unicom will continue to strengthen eSIM ecosystem construction.

“Currently, the IoT field is entering a new stage of innovative development. We have signed this MoU with G+D to not only enhance collaboration based on decades of partnership but also to work together to promote the comprehensive application of eSIM across the industry, accelerating the implementation of eSIM solutions in various fields. I believe that this strategic collaboration will initiate a new era of innovation in eSIM,"
