The SIM card is a technology that most of us are familiar with, present in mobile phones since the early nineties. A SIM card is a piece of hardware which contains data that authenticates us with our mobile operator, enabling us to connect to a network and receive a mobile connection. However, in the future, a huge array of connected devices will connect to mobile networks without the need for a SIM card, thanks to embedded SIM (eSIM) technology. Yuval Mayron, general manager, IoT at Amdocs, discusses how eSIM is supporting a huge variety of connected technologies across the consumer and enterprise markets. eSIM is a global specification developed by telecoms trade body the GSMA, which involves a SIM card chip being embedded into a device. Due to Apple’s latest iPhone launch, eSIM technology has been thrust into the public consciousness. One of the main advantages of eSIM is that it enables users to change operator remotely, straight from their phone, without having to acquire a new SIM card. It also allows people to store multiple profiles on a single device, effectively having two or more numbers, and switch between them at ease. This is ideal for anyone that may require an additional number for travel or business, for example. ANASIA D'MELLO READ MORE
