Industrial IoT businesses stand to gain from eSIM technology


The industrial IoT market is expected to grow into a $98 billion industry by 2024. eSIM enabled devices work right out of the box, removing the delay in receiving and manually installing physical SIM cards and, when deploying thousands of devices, can reduce significant operational cost. Additionally, your devices will have greater security, and if your IoT device is stolen or damaged, eSIM allows for tracking. Continuous monitoring of equipment through eSIM also allows for maintenance via remote technicians. This technology also creates faster inventory to keep operations running efficiently.

Ultimately you are futureproofing your IoT devices, with eSIM you will not need to worry about network coverage changes, sunsets, or replacement of damaged SIM cards. In this video, Steven Baker, Vice President of Product Management at KORE, explains how industrial IoT businesses can stand to capitalise on the sector’s growth opportunity by leveraging KORE eSIM.

Using KORE eSIM can give businesses the opportunity to future-proof devices, while scaling business, ensuring better security, faster inventory, and real-time, remote maintenance. KORE eSIM leverages local networking services and avoids restricted permanent roaming services so your devices can be used globally.

“The KORE eSIM provides future-proof coverage and connectivity that lasts throughout the entire device’s lifecycle. Industrial IoT devices may support a life of up to 10 to 15 years, during which a number of external network changes may occur, including changes in coverage, pricing and technologies.”
-Steven Baker, Vice President of Product Management at KORE.

This video details the benefits to Industrial IoT businesses by switching to eSIM, including:

  • Future-proof coverage and connectivity that lasts the entire lifecycle of an industrial IoT device.
  • Leveraging local network services to avoid expensive roaming solutions.
  • Avoiding the hassle of multiple contracts, manually swapping out SIM cards, and the downtime resulting in network service changes.
