Together, embedded SIMs and Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) enable new design possibilities, new services and innovative business models. On-Demand Connectivity is changing the playing field in several industries.
The mobile device ecosystem is no longer limited to mobile phones, but extends into smartwatches, head-mounted displays and other wearables. eSIM and RSP empowers consumer OEMs to develop new user experiences enabled by high-speed connectivity for these smart gadgets.
RSP unlocks new avenues for MNOs, allowing them to diversify their connectivity services into the world of Internet of Things. Connected cars, industrial routers, drones, and wearables can all be powered with broadband cellular connectivity – and RSP facilitates offering connectivity for multiple devices under a single contract.
The new vision for mobility with self-driving and electric cars hinges on seamless connectivity. With eSIM and RSP enabling borderless connectivity for connected vehicles, the automotive industry is undergoing a major transition from a product-centric to a service-centric industry.
M2M communication saw the earliest implementations of eSIM and RSP technology. For industrial OEMs, RSP enables greater freedom when building connected products. It removes the delays of long contractual discussions with network providers at design stage, and gives them the flexibility to enable connectivity at the time of deployment.
