Embedded SIM (eSIM) has long been desired by the equipment manufacturers, in particular those focused on M2M and IoT. Benefits of programmable SIM are numerous – from the security/protection of the SIM to the remote provisioning. Now eSIM came to revolutionize the mobile telecommunications industry: the fixed-connectivity service of traditional (removable) SIM cards will be eventually replaced by the dynamic connectivity features of embedded SIMs. Earlier this year GSMA released a specification that allows consumers to remotely activate the SIM embedded in a device such as a smart watch, fitness band or tablet. The process currently under way may lead to widespread industry adoption of eSIMs in the very near future. What challenges and opportunities does this eSIM disruption mean for the industry’s stakeholders? World eSIM summit is designed as a dynamic networking event that will delve into cross-industry transformation taking place due to the eSIM revolution, by gathering together top level executives and experts from mobile telecommunication, technology solution providers, connected device manufacturers and automotive.
