The eSIM is sometimes called an eUICC (embedded Universal Circuit Card). The information on the eSIM is compliant and rewritable by all operators. The identification information can be updated over the air, to enable a change of operator when needed. As a result, a new SIM will no longer be required to change operators.
The eSIM stores all information that is necessary to identify and authenticate the mobile subscriber. They also make it much easier and cost-effective to manufacture, procure and deploy hundreds of thousands of M2M devices and sensors.
Very soon we will see the next generation of M2M connected devices using eSIMs. As a result, both operators and M2M SIM service providers will need a new solution to dynamically and remotely manage the lifecycle of an eSIM subscription.
