Remote eSIM provisioning provides lower latency

Why eSIM for MVNO?

eSIMs are programmable remotely, with a dynamic character and therefore offers gobal deployment possibilities in a secure, seamless and easy way.

eSIM technology (eUICC)

In IoT, most of the devices are being equipped with a global roaming SIM solution. In this case data must originate and terminate from the network of the “home” mobile network operator. However, this increases the chances on data delay. The future 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, which results in lower latency.

eSIM or Multi-IMSI?

In comparison with Multi IMSI, which was the predecessor of the eSIM, the standards provides positive IMSI profile selection logic, limitless availability of operator profiles and much better security controls on both removable and embedded chips.

eSIM as the alternative for roaming-only solutions

For the future of your mobile connectivity solutions for IoT, the best available SIM technology is mission critical.

With only a single set of operator credentials, a Roaming Only SIM may not be practical from a commercial point of view, when high roaming cost locations are required.

Future proof e-SIM

The 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 provides you with protection against operator rate changes and ensures access to required mobile technologies because of the ability of remote SIM provisioning.
