CAIRON serves since more than 10 years the telecommunications industry worldwide. We steadily developed to a full-range solution and services provider with a constantly growing portfolio including all types of cards (SIM, vouchers, memory) and packaging, but also value added services (SOS credit, VoIP) and a number of other solutions. Our partner-based business model allows us to be extremely flexible and always find the right solution or product to accompany the growth of our customers.
We now work since two years with achelos on an independent eSIM Subscription Management solution.

Through the partnership with achelos, ConnectedYou (CY) successfully meet a critical milestone in our vision of creating a seamless and independent orchestration layer for IoT connectivity. achelos’ RSP solution powered with CY’s IoT service platform allows MNOs and MVNOs to quickly get on-board our eco-system, enabling a plethora of connectivity options for CY’s customers. IoT connectivity is chosen by customers based on unique combinations of geography, price, time-to-market and network stability and the only way to enable open choices is to decouple connectivity from the hardware - which is exactly what we have achieved.
