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”.
For mobile devices, this means that users can switch carrier almost instantly and without having to change the physical SIM.
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.
eSIM allows OEMs to create smaller, lighter devices. This functionality will be crucial for the next generation of wearable tech.
The GSMA developed the eSIM profile to support the mass deployment of M2M and IoT devices.
IoT is finally becoming a reality for consumers. eSIM is powering this consumer revolution, offering new opportunities to fast-moving businesses.
The eSIM and ecosystem are as secure as existing traditional SIM technology. All our products, solutions and processes are compliant with the latest GSMA standards to guarantee high reliability and full interoperability.
The eSIM (also known as an eUICC);
can come in different form factors, such as traditional SIM form factors as well as separate smart card embedded chips such as MFF2.
Our Remote SIM Provisioning platform;
hosts the connectivity profiles from the telecoms operator. They are ready to be securely installed into the eSIM hardware, at any time, over-the-air.
