TCL Communication and KnowRoaming have developed the “Smart Roaming” Soft SIM solution, allowing users to benefit from a handset-integrated, low-cost roaming solution while traveling abroad, the companies said.
Thanks to KnowRoaming´s entirely virtualized SIM technology, users´ smartphones can automatically connect to data services when in foreign countries. Users can access KnowRoaming´s low rates and be in total control of their expenses through the app. In the future, this technology will be natively integrated into select TCL Communication´s handsets starting with the Chinese market, before launching in other global markets where the company´s mobility division operates under the ALCATEL brand.
Thanks to KnowRoaming´s technology, end users can seamlessly access low-cost roaming when traveling with smartphones made by TCL Communication. For global travelers this means no more chasing Wi-Fi networks, buying expensive carrier packages, or swapping SIM cards.
