Brighter AB have selected the Arkessa eUICC solutions to support the global market launch of Actiste, a mobile health solution that simplifies insulin-treated diabetes by gathering and sharing personal health data between patient and healthcare professionals through a connected pocket-sized device.
Actiste will be marketed and sold as a service to both consumers and the healthcare sector across the globe. The flexibility offered by eUICC is critical to simplifying the go-to-market process and the customer experience by ensuring out-of-the-box connectivity, but also localising that connectivity.
The ability to secure and localise connectivity and personal data is a fundamental requirement for governments and consumers particularly in healthcare. For example, in Europe, the May 2018 deadline for EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance is edging ever closer. Under those regulations, organisations will need to document and report on where their data is, how it is collected, how it is stored, and who can access it, in transit and at rest. This is not unique to Europe of course.
By enabling organisations to control which mobile networks are used for data communications, the eUICC solution delivered via Arkessa’s multi-network MVNO platform will help underpin data sovereignty strategies as well as providing commercial and technical flexibility.
