In recent years, the embedded SIM, commonly known as eSIM, has taken the communications industry by storm.
With its embedded nature and remote provisioning capabilities, eSIM offers many benefits over traditional physical SIM cards. In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why eSIM is gaining popularity and why it is considered a game-changer in the realm of mobile connectivity.
Gone are the days of fumbling with tiny SIM cards and struggling to insert them into our phones. With eSIM, the task of physically swapping SIM cards is eliminated. The user can effortlessly switch between a private or professional mobile network and activate new services directly from their devices.
The true power of eSIM lies in its ability to provide flexibility. No longer bound to a single network operator, users can effortlessly switch between different operators without needing a physical SIM swap. Thanks to remote provisioning, choosing and activating a new network plan becomes a breeze, eliminating the need for physical SIM cards altogether.
If the user wherever to lose their phone, getting started with a new device but keeping the old number and subscription becomes extremely easy.
For those seeking the ultimate versatility, eSIM offers a remarkable solution. Many devices equipped with eSIM support also retain a physical SIM card slot, enabling users to enjoy the benefits of both eSIM and a physical SIM simultaneously. This feature is particularly useful for maintaining separate personal and business lines or utilizing both local and native networks while traveling abroad.
Innovative Device Design
With eSIM technology, the possibilities for sleeker and more streamlined device are endless. By eliminating the need for physical SIM card slots, manufacturers can optimize space within devices, allowing for additional features, larger batteries, or simply creating more aesthetically pleasing designs. The era of bulky SIM trays may soon be a thing of the past.
Seamless Remote Management
eSIMs can be remotely managed by mobile network operators or service providers, enabling efficient and hassle-free device management. Over-the-air updates and activations are made possible, allowing users to effortlessly switch plans, modify services, or activate new features without the need for a physical visit to a store or the acquisition of a new SIM card.
A Greener Future
As the world grows increasingly conscious of environmental sustainability, eSIMs present a significant opportunity to reduce the industry’s ecological footprint. By eliminating the production, distribution, and disposal of plastic SIM cards, eSIM technology contributes to a more sustainable approach, benefiting both consumers and the planet.
Effortless activation of eSIM in BMP
In our Billing Management Portal (BMP) its effortless to activate an eSIM on a user. By activating a toggle and adding an email address for the recipient, the user gets an email with a link to a QR-code and an eSIM code. By scanning the QR-code with a mobile phone the user is up and running with their new mobile network in a swift way.
Coming up we will also have this functionality in our Service Management Portal so that end user admins easily can administrate this by their own.
