Momentum for eSIM is clearly accelerating, with smartphones, smartwatches and connected cars leading the way. More than 160 mobile service providers (and counting) offer eSIM service as deployments grow across consumer and enterprise use cases. That’s significant progress, but what lies ahead?
This summit explores the opportunities and challenges of eSIM, with a focus on IoT. IoT has long been seen as a promising area for eSIM. However, adoption is still low relative to its long-term potential. GSMA Intelligence research shows that nearly 40% of enterprises believe that eSIM is very important to achieve success in their future IoT deployments. This means that there is a business opportunity out there. How do we capture this opportunity? How do we address key challenges such as scalability, security and cost of deployments? How do we reach critical mass, and when?
