  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

MADRID, June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Valid, the champion of interoperable eSIM services, has joined forces with Cobira, a trusted B2B secure IoT connectivity provider, to introduce their ground-breaking Private Networks Offering. This solution empowers IoT/M2M and consumer devices to seamlessly transition between public and designated private networks and maintain uninterrupted connectivity.

The demand for private network capabilities is projected to generate revenues of  $64 billion  by 2030, according to ABI Research. While mobile networks encompass a range of cellular technologies from 2G to 5G, the introduction of 5G technology has driven increased demand for private networks, which offer secure and reliable connectivity, making them attractive for mission-critical operations, IoT deployments, and data privacy. These private networks provide coverage in outdoor locations such as ports and mines and indoor areas like manufacturing production lines, warehouses, secure campuses and healthcare systems.

The partnership combines Valid's state-of-the-art interoperable technology, including a suite of applets, with Cobira's Connectivity Management Service and their Global Data Coverage over Public Networks, delivering a controlled mechanism for identifying private network campuses, and facilitating a smooth switch to public networks when necessary. The SIM or eSIM module, available in removable or soldered formats, securely manages the switch mechanism, stores the applicable business rules to apply and control them at the edge, while still being potentially managed remotely.

Cobira's CCO, Thomas Brandt-Knudsen, explains, "Private networks are rapidly gaining momentum, presenting new opportunities for  infrastructure suppliers, system integrators and MNOs worldwide.  Our collaboration with Valid enables  us to extend  our connectivity services to new customers and foster  this emerging segment within  the mobile industry. We are delighted  to be part of  this innovative initiative that leverages  public network connectivity to empower private environments."

Pierre Lassus, SVP of Global Software & Services of Valid Mobile unit, highlighted the company's commitment to assisting customers in thriving within private network environments. "Our new solution, developed in partnership with Cobira and our dedicated consulting services, streamlines the interworking between private and public networks. This guarantees that the devices can remain connected even when they move beyond the geographical boundaries of the private network, all securely and reliably," he explained.

The collaboration between Valid and Cobira sets the stage for revolutionizing connectivity experiences, enabling IoT and consumer devices to operate seamlessly across private and public networks. With their expertise and innovative solutions, the two companies are poised to shape the future of network connectivity, further empowering businesses and individuals in an increasingly connected world.
