WHAT IS ESIM?

Not just a new SIM, an entirely new way to connect.

eSIM is a new functionality that can be applied to almost all types of SIM cards: traditional removable SIM, soldered SIM and integrated SIM. What makes eSIM revolutionary is the ability to reprogram (reprovision) a SIM “over-the-air”.

Reprogrammable: True Freedom

For mobile devices, this means that users can switch carrier almost instantly and without having to change the physical SIM.

IoT Management

For IoT devices it means that SIMs can be updated without having to remove a SIM. This is vital for potentially millions of devices deployed across the globe.

Wearables at Scale

eSIM allows OEMs to create smaller, lighter devices. This functionality will be crucial for the next generation of wearable tech.

Why eUICC for IoT?

The GSMA developed the eSIM profile to support the mass deployment of M2M and IoT devices.

  • Load operator profiles to multiple devices remotely, over the mobile network or using Wi-Fi.
  • Swap profiles without removing the SIM. Store multiple profiles on a single device.
  • Flexibility of SIM types accounts for every possible use case and often takes up much less space than traditional SIMs.
  • Roaming and moving devices can now automatically navigate between network providers.
  • Enable IoT deployments to get updated by pushing profile changes to the devices from a unified control platform.

True freedom comes from eSIM.

IoT is finally becoming a reality for consumers. eSIM is powering this consumer revolution, offering new opportunities to fast-moving businesses.

  • Simpler device setup without the need to insert or replace a SIM card.
  • No more inserting or removing SIM cards, between devices, countries and even operators.
  • Host multiple devices on a single plan, host multiple operator profiles on a single device.
  • Wearable tech that can operate independently of a tethered smartphone, with their own subscriptions.
  • A range of new, enhanced mobile-connected devices.
