TeliaSonera, the leading operator in the Nordic and Baltic countries has selected Oberthur Technologies' (OT) 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.
The solution which is in compliance with GSMA’s Consumer Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) initiative, will enable TeliaSonera to remotely and securely connect Gear S2 to their mobile network. Users will only need to scan the QR code with a dedicated Samsung application on their smartphone and a 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, users 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.
