Digital security company Gemalto has announced a contract to supply Microsoft with eSIM (embedded SIM) technology for its new Surface Pro with LTE Advanced laptop. The partnership has converted the laptop into the first fully integrated embedded SIM PC in the Windows ecosystem, allowing users to activate all possible connectivity options out-of-box, including the purchase of mobile data from the device itself.

Gemalto added that its eSIM solution is fully integrated with Windows 10 and compliant with the GSMA remote SIM provisioning specifications, allowing for a complete servicing model so that patching and lifecycle management features are available as the technology and standards evolve over time.
