eSIMs Can Fuel Massive Enterprise IoT Projects, Finds Study

eSIMs are gradually replacing traditional SIM cards as enterprises are looking to achieve ‘always-on’ connectivity, especially for business critical IoT projects. According to a Beecham Research, nearly 8 out of 10 respondents said that they are already using eSIMs or expect to use the technology in the coming months as they believe eSIMs can fuel massive IoT projects for the enterprise. eSIM can support various connected technologies across the consumer and enterprises, the research said. “eSIM technology will be used in smartphones and in a range of consumer devices that require always-on connectivity that includes wearables, such as smartwatches and smart glasses, connected home devices, and computing devices such as laptops and tablets,” it said. Experts believe that eSIM will enable subscribers to connect more devices to their mobile operator, offering several device packages and customized data plans. The new technology is also more manageable as customers can conveniently add new devices to their programs without going in-store or waiting for a physical SIM card to arrive in the post, as per the report.

Market Overview:

eSIM or an embedded SIM is a programmable SIM card that is embedded into a phone, a smartwatch, or any other connected device. The eSIM stays on the device and cannot be physically pulled out or swapped like a physical SIM card. The embedded SIM, however, needs to be supported by your carrier or network to work. Having said that, you would not find any real-world difference between the service of eSIM and a regular physical SIM. Both authenticate your identity to a carrier or network to make calls, send SMSes, and use the internet using its towers. Additionally, eSIM supports all the regular networks such as 4G/ 5G, much like the regular physical SIM.

IoT service providers can now use one robust system that gathers different carrier deals and eSIM management under one roof instead of handling multiple carrier deals and SIM cards for use in different countries or regions.

– As eSIM enables users to connect more devices to their mobile operator, operators can offer multi-device packages and bespoke data plans. With eSIM, device bundling will become much more accessible, with consumers conveniently adding new devices to their plans without having to go in-store or wait for a physical SIM card to arrive in the post. In turn, this presents additional revenue opportunities for mobile operators, as their customers scale-up their plans by adding new devices that require data. Businesses with many mobiles used by their employees will also benefit from the convenience of eSIM. eSIM can deliver a better user experience for managing cellular connectivity. Profiles for each user can also be personalized, and data plans can be adjusted and optimized via eSIM remote management tools.

– Multiple countries are witnessing the deployment of eSIM. For instance, in April 2020, stc has announced a localizing platform for eSIM for the first time in Saudi, obtained an international accreditation deemed requisite for rolling out eSIM technology. stc can provide eSIM services to all Mobile and Virtual Network Operators (MNOs/MVNOs) in the country as a National eSIM Platform. Also, the service can be extended to other MNO’s in the Arabian Gulf region or internationally interested in obtaining the eSIM service from stc. The adoption of eSIM in Saudi Arabia in cooperation with GSMA Certification is expected to be a step towards achieving the mandates of Saudi Vision 2030, by localizing eSIM technology and further enabling digital transformation.

– In May 2020, Virgin Mobile offered an integrated digital experience to keep customers across the connected amid COVID-19 lockdown with the rollout eSIM card technology in Saudi Arabia because an eSIM could be activated directly through digital channels without the requirement for a visit to a store, bringing flexibility and high efficiency to customers. In April 2020, eSIM.net Group Ltd, an online eSIM store and MNVO announced Europe’s first Pay As You Go (PAYG) data, voice, and SMS eSIM plan. Unlike current eSIM plans offered by the United Kingdom’s mobile network operators, this plan is not locked to any network. Equipped with a +44 telephone number, the PAYG plan can be downloaded online and is particularly beneficial during lockdown due to COVID-19 for those living in mobile network black-spots.

Smartphone is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

– As smartphone manufacturers continuously strive to make smaller, slimmer, and lighter devices with more features, space is at an absolute premium. The size of the Nano SIM card is about 12.30 mm in length and 8.80 mm wide. It also takes additional space associated with internal hardware and circuitry that needs to be accommodated. For many years, manufactures have had to design and adjust the physical SIM card via SIM card trays or other internal slots. The need for more durable and waterproof phones is expected to drive the removal of the physical SIM tray will drive the adoption of eSIM on smartphones. Remote Provisioning capabilities within the eSIM standard is expected to provide users with enhanced customer experience for activating and managing the phones.

– Samsung’s inclusion of eSIM technology in its S20 range of devices is expected to positively impact the adoption of eSIM in smartphones, which was previously confined to limited brands such as Apple and Google.
