With the growing numbers of IoT devices such as smartwatches, cars, and smart meters, global connectivity is becoming more important every day. This is where the term “eSIM” has been thrown around a lot.
An eSIM is a SIM card that is embedded in a device.
The driver for eSIM comes from the difficulty to change a SIM card in M2M devices, such as smart meters. However, it is also used in mobile user equipment.
Metamorfoz eSIM Management Platfrom allows you to remotely
download SIM profiles over-the-air. Companies can manage the SIM provisioning process for the desired mobile operator. By this way, this is more easy to manage the connectivity and the logitics of pyhsical SIM cards.
For the automative sector, the lifespan of a vehicle far exceeds the normal commercial term of a communications connectivity contract. Once deployed within the car traditional SIM cards are difficult to replace. Embedded SIM technology (eSIM), that allows changing mobile communications service providers “over the air”, is one way to overcome this.
