Rakuten Telecom deploys Thales' trusted connection solution for the world's first fully virtualized network

Thales‘ first end-to-end cloud-native operation in the world Internet played a key role in the network of operators are active participants in the Japanese market – Lotte telecommunications (Rakuten Mobile).

This flexible mobile network operator is using Thales’ comprehensive eSIM, SIM and remote connection management solution portfolio to help consumers quickly embark on their digital journey. Thales’ eSIM technology has also played a key role in the development of Rakuten Telecom’s innovative 4G and 5G smartphones.

By supporting the cloud activation of eSIM devices, Thales’ solution enhances the digital access process for Rakuten Telecom users. For users, remote system management of subscriptions during the device’s lifetime is equally simple and straightforward. In addition to realizing a digital user experience, this digital-first strategy has also improved Rakuten Telecom’s operational efficiency.

The space saved by Thales eSIM is especially valuable for 5G devices, because 5G devices currently require larger antennas and batteries, and there is almost no space for new features. Rakuten Telecom is deploying Thales’ eSIM in its 4G and 5G smartphones (Rakuten Mini, Rakuten Hand, and 5G-compatible Rakuten BIG).
