eSIM IoT Application International Roaming Guide

eSIM is a form of embedded SIM card technology, where "e" stands for "embedded" and "SIM" stands for "Subscriber Identity Module". Traditional SIM cards are physical chip cards containing a chip used to identify mobile users and manage network access permissions. Traditional SIM cards require replacement to switch telecommunications networks, requiring you to remove the original SIM card and replace it with a new one. However, eSIM technology allows you to remotely download settings or use telecommunication connections to manage your mobile devices without the need to replace physical SIM cards.

The main advantage of eSIM technology is eliminating the constraints of traditional physical SIM cards. This means you can access LTE networks globally without any action or the need to purchase local SIM cards in destination countries. However, due to the relatively new nature of eSIM technology, there are still some limitations. For example, not all mobile operators support eSIM technology, some devices may require updates to support eSIM, and regulations in certain countries and regions may restrict the use of eSIM.

M2M (Machine to Machine) communication refers to communication and interaction between machines. e-SIM, as a new type of SIM card technology, is widely used in M2M communication. Since most IoT devices do not require human intervention, switching telecommunications networks poses a challenge. Additionally, when businesses expand into different countries, traditional SIM cards must be replaced with local SIM cards for use. However, the global telecommunications roaming connectivity service provided by Telenor IoT can address these issues, enabling seamless multi-country connections. This service brings several advantages, including no need to change hardware devices, no need to change telecommunications operators, plug-and-play functionality, providing single-window support, and simple cost assessment, greatly reducing labor costs and product design complexity.

Telenor IoT's global telecommunications roaming connectivity service supports multiple operators, making it highly valuable for IoT applications worldwide. For example, in the logistics industry, trucks may need to transport goods in multiple countries, each with different operators and cost standards. Using Telenor IoT's e-SIM service can automatically switch operators, reducing roaming costs and management expenses.

eSIM Applications

Roaming SIM cards: Roaming SIM cards are designed to meet the high demands of industrial IoT products. These SIM cards comply with current standards and regulations, enabling the final products to be sold and used globally. Roaming SIM cards can be customized according to your solution requirements, including custom printing and configuration options.

Global subscriptions: Global subscription services provide access to mobile networks. Each subscription defines a connection service for a SIM card or a set of SIM cards. This service supports various network access types (PS data, SMS, voice, etc.) and provides self-service portals for subscription management. You can choose coverage areas as needed and change subscription statuses, providing high flexibility.

Virtual Private Network (VPN): VPNs provide secure protection for internet information transmission and improve the data security of products. VPNs can establish secure connections, connecting your data center and IoT platforms, thereby improving security, reducing the risk of data loss, limiting data traffic, and providing high availability.

Smartwatches: Some smartwatches support eSIM technology, allowing you to connect directly to telecommunications networks without relying on smartphones. This enables you to independently use the watch for calls, sending messages, and data transmission.

Smart homes: eSIM is also used in smart home devices, including smart lights, smart locks, smart appliances, etc. Through eSIM, these devices can directly connect to the internet for smart control and monitoring.

Wearables: Similar to smartwatches, some wearable devices (such as smart glasses and smart wristbands) also support eSIM. This means you can independently use these devices without relying on smartphones or other devices.

In-vehicle devices: eSIM is applied to automotive/truck and other in-vehicle devices, such as GPS navigation, in-car entertainment systems, etc. Through eSIM, these devices can connect to the internet for services such as smart navigation, entertainment, and information tracking.

Smart cities: eSIM is used in the construction of smart cities, including smart transportation, smart parking, smart streetlights, etc. Through eSIM, these devices can connect to the city's smart network for smart control and monitoring, improving the efficiency and safety of urban operations.

Goods tracking: Currently, eSIM is widely used in tracking goods such as containers, refrigerated items, wine barrels, etc. It not only provides location information but also calculates relevant information such as the shelf life of goods.

Smart vending: Smart unmanned vending machines are a current market trend. Through IoT mechanisms, these vending machines can automatically control inventory, replenishment, and analyze customer demographics.
