The arrival of embedded SIMs, or eSIMs, which can operate globally, support multiple subscriptions, and can be remotely programmed for new subscriptions, takes SIM ownership from the MNO/MVNO and gives it to the device user.

The SIM card has, traditionally, been owned by the MNO/MVNO. If you want to switch the carrier, you have to switch the SIM, too. But that’s changing. The arrival of embedded SIMs (eSIM), or eUICCs, which can operate globally, support multiple subscriptions, and can be remotely programmed for new subscriptions, takes SIM ownership from the MNO/MVNO and gives it to the device user.

In the automotive sector, OEMs are starting to use versions of eSIM technology to lower manufacturing costs and simplify logistics. OEMs equip each car with a single eSIM, so there’s only one item to stock in inventory. Once the car arrives in the region where it will be sold, the eSIM can be configured to work with the preferred local MNO. The approach makes manufacturing more flexible, and makes localization easier.

Automotive manufacturers have been strong proponents of eSIM technology, since it lets them deliver connected vehicles in a way that hadn’t been possible with the existing operator ecosystem.

Using an eSIM in an IoT deployment can make it easier to deal with changing business environments, since the SIM can be updated remotely, without a field visit or hardware changes (see https://secure-iot.eu/secure-iot-management/ )

Secure-IoT provides OEMs and Chipmakers with two bundle solutions:

  1. The Secure-Element as discrete Hardware (module) + the eUICC software stack (application): Here the eUICC-module will be connected next to / outside of the SoC;
  2. The Secure-Element as Hard-IP-core + the eUICC software stack (application):
    Here the Secure Element including its eUICC-functionalityis integral of the SoC-Design. Our Secure Element IP options include fully CC EAL5+ certifiable product with external flash. (see also https://secure-iot.eu/secure-element-iot-as-hard-ip/)
