Simplify your supply chain by connecting your IoT devices anywhere in the world, the moment they’re switched on.

What is bootstrap?

Bootstrap connectivity is an essential part of eSIM technology. The bootstrap profile comes pre-installed on the device and connects that device to any available network, wherever it is in the world—out of the box.




No Wi-Fi? No problem.

Bootstrap is essential to activate devices remotely or where no interface is available. This allows devices to be set up and configured by a central administration, without the need to manually interact with them locally.
