According to Juniper Research, the number of global private cellular Internet of Things (IoT) roaming connections will grow by more than 800% in the next four years, climbing from 15 million in 2023 to 142 million by 2027. Given this mass surge, organizations must make sure they have uninterrupted connectivity across devices, along with complete visibility into their whole program.
To meet the need for more reliable connectivity, Syniverse, "the world's most connected company,"® is partnering with Microsoft to make its Global SIM solution available for use with Microsoft Azure private multi-access edge compute (MEC).
This strategic collaboration allows enterprises deploying a private network at their operational facilities, using Azure Private 5G Core on Azure edge platform, to leverage Syniverse solutions to support OT applications that require private-to-public 5G and LTE network interoperability. With this add-on service, IoT devices for asset tracking, frontline workforce collaboration, and autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs) primarily connected on private networks can roam over a public network on demand or leverage public networks for improved resiliency. Enterprises using workforce tablets on public networks can also switchover to dedicated private networks at enterprise facilities.
Whether it’s a utility company that desires a localized wireless network solution that’s fast, dependable, and secure, or a large-scale manufacturer that wants to extend connectivity well beyond its facility, private wireless networks are the driving force that will enable these capabilities. But these aren’t the only industries that will benefit from the power of this solution — mining, shipping, transportation, logistics, healthcare, and even smart cities can improve the lives of users by enabling reliable, global, and secure roaming between private and public networks.
Given the rapid expansion of private wireless networks and the Internet of Things, seamless roaming between private and public networks is more essential than ever, said Harry Patz, Jr., Chief Revenue Officer at Syniverse. Through this integration, Azure users will benefit from technology that lets devices move to public networks and automatically revert to the private network when it's available. This prevents businesses from racking up costly roaming revenues if their devices remain connected to public networks, eliminates communication issues regardless of where in the world these devices are located, and ensures their continued security. All of which go a long way toward improving the customer experience.
Syniverse recently received an IoT Evolution Private Wireless Network Innovation Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading publication covering IoT technologies. The awarded solution is built on patented Automated Network Reselection (ANR) technology, a unique feature that provides secure and seamless connectivity as mobile devices move from private to public networks and back. It includes subscriber identity module (SIM) management and hosted or on-premises core functionality, policy, and cloud integration, and it is ideal for organizations that demand reliable connections, high speeds, and minimal latency, as well as the option to increase security based on specific devices.
Microsoft private network customers can now integrate Syniverse Global SIM, a platform as a service (PaaS), that provides global coverage in over 200 countries and gives control over cellular data and precision policy management over every device in an organization.
"Syniverse’s Global SIM solution offers our enterprise customers with global, multi-site operations, the capability to support applications that traverse private and public connectivity and offer mission critical resiliency," said Tad Brockway, Corporate Vice President, Azure for Operators, Microsoft. "We are working together to integrate and validate the solutions to make it really simple for enterprises to manage solutions built with Azure private MEC."
The Syniverse Global SIM solution is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
Syniverse is the world's most connected company. We seamlessly connect the world's networks, devices, and people so the world can unlock the full power of communications.
Our secure, global technology powers the world's leading carriers, top Forbes Global 2000 companies, and billions of people, devices, and transactions every day. Our engagement platform delivers better, smarter experiences that strengthen relationships between businesses, customers, and employees.
For over 30 years, we have accelerated important advances in communications technology. Today we are an essential driver of the world's adoption of intelligent connectivity, from 5G and CPaaS to IoT and beyond. Find out more at https://www.syniverse.com.

Cybersecurity provider SecurityGen is expanding its operations in the Middle East to support the region's accelerated growth of 5G and digital transformation initiatives. With the rapid growth of 5G and initiatives like Saudi Vision 2030, there is a significant need for secure high-speed broadband networks in the Middle East. Cities in the region are utilizing 5G for IoT-based applications like 'Smart City' initiatives, and operators need to ensure network security to capitalize on these opportunities.
5G is expanding quicker than any other mobile generation in history. However, this increases the risk of cyberattacks against operators and their consumers. By 2025, there will be approximately 50 million 5G connections in the MENA region, with approximately 20 million in the GCC Arab States. By 2025, the GCC Arab States will be marginally ahead of the global average in terms of 5G adoption, with 16 percent (5G as a percentage of total mobile connections) versus 15 percent globally.
Amit Nath, Co-founder and CEO at SecurityGen, stated,
The Middle East represents potential for significant growth in 5G over the next few years. As the region expands culturally and economically via digital transformation projects along with ambitious initiatives like Saudi Arabia's Saudi Vision 2030, the spotlight is on the telecom operators and how they deliver secure high-speed broadband to communities in the areas beyond the reach of wireline networks.

SecurityGen will bolster its presence in the Middle East by enhancing its delivery capabilities and senior leadership. This expansion aims to cater to the growing adoption of 5G and IoT-based projects in the region, helping telecom operators secure their networks from cyber threats. SecurityGen's new Managing Director for the Middle East & Africa, Imad Ayad, with over 20 years of experience in telecom and tech, will drive growth and strengthen partnerships with operators and enterprises in the region.
Nath added that their appointment of Imad Ayad as the new Managing Director for Middle East & Africa at SecurityGen aimed to facilitate further growth throughout the region. Ayad possesses more than two decades of experience in leading roles within the telecommunications and technology sectors, including significant positions at Nokia, Alfa Telecommunications, Enghouse Networks, and Tranglo. Nath also emphasized that Ayad's specialized background in Value-Added Services (VAS) and SMS security, combined with SecurityGen's extensive expertise and established security solutions, positioned them as an ideal partner for operators expanding their 5G operations in the region, with a primary focus on cybersecurity.
SecurityGen, established in 2022, is a worldwide entity with a dedicated focus on telecommunications security. Their mission revolves around establishing a strong security framework to facilitate secure telecom digital transformations and guarantee the safety and resilience of network operations. The organization's comprehensive range of products and services is strategically designed to offer an all-encompassing defense against both established and cutting-edge telecom security threats.
