Quickfire Interview: Scaling Security with eSIM

Organisations have traditionally relied on cellular connectivity delivered via SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) cards for their IoT deployments. While widely leveraged, this approach also comes with many challenges of its own. Normal SIMs provide one single carrier, for instance. For truly global connectivity, you need to look to more mobile solutions – but which ones can ensure connectivity and security?

But eSIM technology has the potential to address those challenges in a more secure and scalable way. By allowing for remote provisioning, changing profiles no longer means changing the entire device. Embedding a SIM card that can be remotely provisioned means you’re increasing security of your device and ensuring the SIM card cannot be removed and placed in unauthorized devices. Not only does this increase security, but it also keeps costs and risks down considerably.

In the latest Quickfire Interview for IoT Now, Marco Bijvelds, Senior Vice President of EAP at KORE, joins Jeremy Cowan, editorial director of IoT Now, to discuss the key drivers and primary use cases for electronic Subscriber Identity Modules (eSIMs). Together, they give great insight into the many advantages you’ll encounter by leveraging eSIM as you grow your IoT solution.

Watch this on-demand video interview, “Scaling Security with eSIM,” to learn more about:

  • Key drivers and primary use cases for eSIM
  • Emerging challenges with security in IoT
  • Typical eSIM connectivity infrastructures
  • Key steps for organisations looking to deploy an eSIM solution
