uCloudlink Adopts Virtual SIM into 5G Firstly in the World
A Mobile Industry First Allowing for Seamless Access to Global 5G
【Oct 19, 2019, Shenzhen, China】uCloudlink, an innovative global mobile data service provider, has successfully implemented the world's first SIM card- and roaming-free inter-carrier access across 5G networks. Utilizing GlocalMe Inside, an in-house designed solution by uCloudlink, enables users to be free of SIM card restricted access across different operators’ 5G networks. Access would be unrestricted in multiple countries without the roaming agreements as by preloaded mobile applications on 5G smartphones. Mobile users can enjoy exactly the same quality of service as users on local networks, allowing for access to high speed and low latency 5G services and network experience worldwide, without the need to pay high roaming charges.
GlocalMe Inside utilizing 5G
As everyone knows, 5G technology has the advantage
of extremely high network speeds and low latency which greatly enhances user
experience. However, current 5G network coverage and services have yet to be
established universally. The 5G networks of operators only offer services to
their localized coverage areas. Due to the differences in coverage among operators,
even under non-roaming status, the inability to access 5G services is commonplace.
Users therefore do not always receive consistent 5G internet experiences even in
the presence of 5G service signals. In the case of roaming, the user experience
becomes even worse. Due to roaming settlement constraints, operators often
adopt speed limitations or a policy of returning data traffic back to home
networks which greatly weakens the high speed and low latency benefits of 5G.

By adopting the GlocalMe Inside solution, mobile
phones are granted the ability to have real-time optimization 5G network signaling
across operators; adjusting to the most suitable virtual SIM card to gain
network access, thereby, greatly improving the availability of the access to and
usage of 5G networks. Meanwhile, service quality and user experience are
greatly enhanced through the use of GlocalMe Inside.
uCloudlink is seeking to work with more mobile
phone manufacturers and operators to enhance user experience of 5G networks and
global roaming. Service operators can benefit from the improvement of network
resource utilization efficiency, thus offering their customers improved user
