Entitlements as a technology play a pivotal role in managing device features and capabilities. With each advancement, the demand for seamless integration and adaptation grows, presenting both challenges and opportunities for carriers worldwide.

Most recently, we have seen new use cases, such as Apple’s eSIM Quick Transfer, being added to allow easy management of eSIMs when customers upgrade their devices. However, for carriers with existing Entitlement solutions, each new use case poses a significant challenge. Upgrades to accommodate these features require considerable time and financial investment. Our research with approximately 100 carriers globally indicates that these costs deter them from pursuing those upgrades.

Worse, with a constant stream of new use cases expected over the next decade, the traditional upgrade approach will no longer work – a new approach is needed.

With NetLync's Entitlement-as-a-Service (EaaS), we've achieved precisely this – as new features emerge in both iOS and Android ecosystems, they automatically appear in the carrier's Developer Portal at zero cost, ready for immediate integration and launch. This not only simplifies the process but also aligns with OEMs' product roadmaps.

But how does NetLync assist carriers that already have an Entitlement solution? Transitioning to a new platform like NetLync's EaaS may not seem easy. Recognising this challenge, NetLync has worked with Apple, to offer a brand-new option to the market. 

Through NetLync's Multi-Entitlement Server Support, carriers can keep using their existing Entitlement Server for everything it does today - for example, Phone Number Registration and Apple Watch - but now for new use cases like Apple’s eSIM Quick Transfer, the carrier is able run EaaS alongside their current Entitlements solution. This dual capability is made possible by sophisticated logic Apple has integrated into iOS, enabling it to smartly direct traffic for different use cases to the appropriate entitlement solution. It ensures carriers can effortlessly adopt new capabilities without disrupting their current operations.

We understand the importance of making informed decisions, which is why we invite you to explore the full capabilities of our solution at no cost. With NetLync's EaaS, you can assess its fit for your needs with confidence before making any financial commitment.
