Amdocs emerged as the leader in rankings of e-SIM orchestration vendors by Counterpoint Research, which rates companies’ capabilities and market success.

The research company evaluates companies based on criteria including BSS/OSS integration, security, interoperability, self-service and contracts.

It identified Moflix and Lotusflare as emerging as leaders in end-to-end e-SIM orchestration capabilities, while highlighting IDEMIA, Truphone, 10T Tech, Thales, G+D and Workz as “specialists” partnering with different players to offer products and services.

Counterpoint Research tipped Redtea Mobile, Oasis Smart SIM, Nokia, Ericsson, HPE, Valid, Achelos and Kigen as dark horses.

Senior research analyst Ankit Malhotra stated 2022 was a landmark year for the global e-SIM sector as more than 260 MNOs and MVNOs offered the capability, with the average device compatibility operators reaching “more than 30”.
