The term "eSIM" or "Electronic SIM" simply means an embedded SIM card. The embedded SIM is basically a small chip already build inside your mobile device (phone, watch, tablet, IoT etc.) where the information is rewritable. Then a "SIM profile" is loaded on it through a QR code to be scanned by your mobile device. Then the eSIM act as like a physical SIM, you can load several profiles and manage them with the application included with your mobile device, offering Data, Call & Text.
eSIM in IoT
In the Internet of Things (IoT), most of the devices are being equipped with a global roaming SIM solution. For this reason, data must originate and terminate from the network of the “home” mobile network operator. Nevertheless, this grows the likelihoods on data delay. The solution to achieve lower latency is the GSMA standards-based eUICC or “eSIM”. This allows remotely programming on the smart device and, so data access can be generated in the local area, resulting in lower latency.
Since eSIM technology provides a programmable SIM solution with the option to use a local profile wherever a device is located, this can be seen as a future proof technology. Local profiles can be added and managed remotely. This enables you to avoid expensive roaming scenarios. The eSIM solution ensures access to required mobile technologies because of the ability of remote SIM provisioning.
Advantages of eSIM
Instant delivery into your compatible device
Convert your mobile phone into a Dual SIM
Connecting locally to multiple carriers
Manage privacy for business and family
Provide the mobile capability to a small device like Smart Watch
Load operator profiles to multiple devices remotely, over the mobile network or Wi-Fi.
Swap profiles without removing the SIM. Store multiple profiles on a single device.
98% smaller than traditional SIMs
20 times lighter
10 X lifespan ten times that of the traditional SIM allowing up to 1million rewrites of its memory.
Considerably more durable withstanding extreme temperatures up to 105oc
Great deal stronger with high shock resistance allowing it to perform in the most demanding operational conditions
Enables a device to be fully waterproof as the SIM can be sealed directly within the device.
