In the past several blogs, we’ve learned how eSIM technology will eliminate some of IoT’s most cumbersome complexities, such as unreliable device connectivity, roaming fees, and network shut-downs. If you haven’t read these eSIM primers, start here to prepare you for this blog.
With a strong understanding of how eSIM works and how it’s applied, it’s time to learn how the technology might solve your specific IoT challenges. Take the readiness assessment below to determine if a Natively Connected, Future Proof, or Auto Provisioning use case will best meet your technical and business needs.
Scoring your Answers
Add up the appropriate points for each question and calculate a grand total:
0-15 points: Utilize Traditional SIMs
Your IoT solution is fairly straightforward and won’t require the extra complexity of multiple carrier profiles, regional compliance regulations, or costly technology upgrades. Traditional SIM technology is the best solution for you at this time.
15-25 points: Utilize Natively Connected eSIM
You’ve got the right idea. Start off local with your IoT deployment, but stay open to expanding your business and solution offerings to different areas or regions – or even globally – in the future. eSIM technology will help, when the time comes, to easily transition into a larger solution offering footprint.
25+ points: Select Future Proof/Auto Provisioning eSIM
There’s no limit to what your IoT solution can do or where it can go. eSIM technology is the perfect answer to help ensure seamless connectivity and global coverage of your IoT devices, without the headache of managing SIM card inventory and provisioning processes for multiple carriers, in multiple regions.
