Utilizing Remote SIM Provisioning for IoT, OEMs can now easily comply with connectivity regulations with a single SIM SKU
New York, NY – August 8, 2023 – Webbing, a global Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) providing connectivity for Enterprise Mobility and IoT applications, and Protahub, a new generation technology company providing state of the art provisioning technologies, today announced their successful cooperation in Remote SIM Provisioning for IoT in Turkey.
