Digitalize your processes with eSIM technology
eSIM management is more than the evolution of SIM cards from the physical to the virtual: It is one of the technologies that will have the greatest impact on the IoT and push its acceptance significantly. With a solid and reliable management solution for embedded subscriber identity modules in place, MNOs are well positioned to be key enablers of the exploding IoT market. In addition MNOs can create new and convenient consumer device journeys.
With our proven, award-winning, future-proof eSIM Management solution, mobile operators securely manage the lifecycle of cellular subscriptions. This solution addresses the consumer, enterprise and the IoT market. Consumers benefit from a convenient and fully digital user experience. This enables entirely new customer acquisition journeys for further target groups. The eSIM Management solution also fosters the development of innovative and attractive consumer device types, which in turn increases the demand for multi-device contracts.
Enterprises maintain a large number of connected devices, typically smartphones, laptops, and tablets. In an enterprise environment, these devices entrusted to employees still need to be managed by the company. Our Management Service allows enterprises to remotely manage employee mobile connectivity with flexibility.
Today, the fastest growing sector is Industrial IoT, which includes sensors, processors, systems, and platforms used by businesses to create greater operational efficiencies. IoT devices, such as sensor modules, logistics tracking systems, and manufacturing equipment take advantage of mobile connectivity and typically use eSIMs. Embedded subscriber identity modules make the rollout and lifecycle management of these sensors straightforward and efficient.
MNOs benefit from eSIM management in many ways:
- New business: convenient, remote, and instant customer registration leads to innovative new use cases, for example for travelers
- Revenue growth: higher levels of eSIM adoption in consumer IoT increases sales of multi-device plans
- Cost savings: end-to-end digital process eases logistics and allows fast and inexpensive customer acquisition
- Attractive devices: eSIM technology facilitates innovative, slim, sleek but also robust mobile device designs
- Customer satisfaction: easy and fully digital customer onboarding
- More customers: flexible and easy-to-use connectivity results in new Industrial IoT customers
