eSIM, which has seen significant adoption in the consumer sector, is growing in use in the Internet of Things (IoT). Juniper Research estimates that eSIMs will be installed in 3.4 billion devices by 2025, which is an increase from 1.2 billion in 2021.
The ability of eSIM to support device deployment longevity with a future-proofed approach to connectivity, the single-SKU delivery of a broad ecosystem of deployed devices, and a global approach to roaming restrictions are at the heart of this technology advancing in the IoT sector. eSIM success can be enhanced through the three pillars – validate, deploy, and manage – supporting this connectivity technology.
It is important to test a device’s eSIM interoperability before deploying it to the field. If not completed, eSIM functionality issues might go undetected and jeopardise the success of an IoT deployment. The KORE eSIM self-service device validation tool is integrated with the KORE Connectivity Management Platform (CMP) ConnectivityProTM and provides technical testing to ensure your device can operate in an eSIM environment.
The KORE eSIM Device Validation Tool reduces the complexity of device validation, enabling users to validate devices in minutes instead of having to ship them and wait a few weeks for third party testing to be completed. Now, it’s simple and quick to validate your device with any KORE eSIM.
Deploying eSIM devices should be a simplified process that meets the requirements of the use case and can be with zero-touch provisioning. Unfortunately, as competition in the market rises with eSIM’s popularity, so do products that might tout the same benefits of eSIM, but really do not.
The KORE OmniSIM offers two configurations, eUICC, and Multi-IMSI eSIM for organisations to capture the benefits of zero-touch provisioning in a single future-proofed, global connectivity technology.
The KORE OmniSIM offering helps:
A connectivity management platform is table stakes for IoT solutions – what is important for IoT now, as it has grown more widespread and complex, is a connectivity management platform that integrates with the key areas of IoT solutions, not just connectivity management. KORE ConnectivityPro is the powerhouse of KORE connectivity solutions, offering the ability to not only manage, order, and provision eSIMs, but it is also hosts the eSIM Device Validation Tool.
With how complex the connectivity ecosystem can be, a unified approach is needed to achieve success without devoting an excessive amount of time, resources, or funds. That is why KORE created ConnectivityPro that allows users to effectively manage, monitor, and control IoT network connectivity across multiple carriers and satellite providers through a single user interface.
Managing eSIM connectivity after it has been deployed is crucial in keeping costs down, making sure devices are operating properly, and keeping the entire ecosystem under control, but that can be difficult without a singular approach.
