Bootstrap connectivity is an essential part of eSIM technology. The bootstrap profile comes pre-installed on the device and connects that device to any available network, wherever it is in the world—out of the box.
Bootstrap is essential to activate devices remotely or where no interface is available. This allows devices to be set up and configured by a central administration, without the need to manually interact with them locally.
Bootstrap provides a more efficient supply chain—enabling device makers to confidently manufacture eSIM enabled devices in a single product line, safe in the knowledge that they will connect anywhere they are deployed.
Users won’t have to insert a SIM card or type in a Wi-Fi password to get their device connected— they are immediately connected to a cellular network from the moment their devices are turned on. Reducing devices’ reliance on Wi-Fi becomes especially important in developing markets where fixed-line connectivity is less prevalent.
Truphone Bootstrap is already being used in some of the world’s most prominent connected devices. As the only provider in the world that develops and operates its own GSMA compliant eSIM, remote SIM provisioning and global mobile network, Truphone can provide a single solution encompassing the necessary hardware, software, and management platform to enable truly intelligent connectivity.Truphone global network
