Empowering Seamless Connectivity

Today, eSIM technology of the company collaborates with more than twenty-five mobile companies, operating worldwide across one hundred and eighty countries.

The Key Differentiator
Cubic supports the many moving parts of seamless connectivity through its provisioning and management of SIMs, billing structure, prepaid bundled rate plans, and overall development and management. This has propelled Cubic as an obvious choice for solution provision for leading automotive and enterprise brands.
The eSIM is installed at the point of manufacture in mobile devices and automotives. This is pre-configured to support Cubic’s entire mobile operator footprint. Such cost-effective features have been its key differentiator.
In addition to these, Cubic is a technology enabler to its customers, and the company has an arsenal of software and hardware platforms in place.
A Prominent Leadership
Barry Napier is the CEO and Chairman of Cubic Telecom. Napier has resourceful experience of over eighteen years in the Telecom field. He is a seasoned executive for successful M&A transactions.
At Cubic, Napier oversees various departments like strategic development, investor relations, and strategic partnerships. He has also spearheaded the development of key practice areas, including the most recently undertaken connected car/infotainment initiatives.
Under Napier’s direction, Cubic has gone on to become a fully-licensed GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) carrier and has closed agreements with more than 40 mobile operators. This includes leading mobile operators like China Mobile, Digicel, Orange, Sprint, and Vodafone.
Since 2005, Cubic Telecom has raised approximately $88 million in funding. Back in August 2017, the company closed a $47 million Series C round led by Audi, Qualcomm, Valid and the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund.
Initial Impediments: Raising Funds and Assuring Excellence
Although Cubic has an exceptional suite of products as well as admirable capabilities to its name, the company struggled to raise funds during its period of inception. Assuring automobile and telecom leaders of the platform’s abilities was hard-hitting for the team during its early inception. However, Cubic has gone on to boast one of the largest independent LTE footprints in Europe.
Introducing Innovative Services for Valuable Clients
Cubic initially focused on providing its services in European markets. Over the last decade or so, the company has gained many satisfied clients across U.S., China, Japan and other international markets. The company now envisions expanding its territories across other Asian nations.
To address the growing needs of its worldwide customer base, Cubic is employing more and more innovative services such as data analytics. It aims to deploy some novel creative customized services, which are capable of enhancing content management processes in the near future.
