eSIM: a windfall for the IoT
Through this white paper published by Mobile World Live in partnership with Thales, discover the growth trajectories of IoT and eSIM.
Learn more about the opportunities for IoT service providers to deliver comprehensive and flexible connectivity solutions to energy companies, smart city organizations and other industry sectors involved in massive IoT deployments.
The paper also details how Thales Adaptive Connect (TAC) offers a unique opportunity for enterprises and utilities to position themselves as connectivity leader in this growing segment.
The eSIM revolution
Adopted relatively quickly in the consumer market, eSIM (embedded SIM card) technology has significantly transformed the IoT industry.
Seen as the natural evolution of the SIM card, the eSIM can offer stakeholders a range of compelling benefits, including seamless remote connectivity and extremely efficient subscription management throughout the product lifecycle.
Seize the huge opportunity of IoT
IoT has come a long way and now offers increasingly innovative and compelling solutions. It confers real opportunities for companies seeking efficiency, automation, and performance.
This has been made possible by the arrival of the eSIM in 2017, which immediately attracted many stakeholders offering consumer devices (mobile phones, watches, laptops, tablets, smart meters, etc.)

Leveraging eSIM to address massive IoT deployments
IoT connectivity providers
Indeed, eSIM offers a multitude of benefits for organizations planning to deploy a large number of devices.
Most notably remote updates, reduced maintenance costs or sending highly accurate data about a device.
- The first is remote updates. With eSIM, you can remotely update your devices. This means that you don't have to take your device in for maintenance or replacement. Instead, you can update it from afar.
- Another benefit is reduced maintenance costs. You won't need to send your device in for repairs as often if you use eSIM because you can do things like update its software remotely instead of having to physically go to a shop and get it fixed by an employee.
- With eSIM, you can also send highly accurate data about a device, which helps ensure that your product is meeting customers' needs and expectations.
- Finally, eSIM flexible connectivity means that you'll be able to connect with devices without worrying about whether they have an available SIM slot; all they need is power!
Nevertheless, some parameters are not yet adapted for the emerging massive IoT segment, which needs adaptive connectivity compared to existing methods on the market.
To overcome this, Thales has expanded its eSIM solution portfolio and now offers a Thales Adaptive Connect (TAC) solution.
Thales solution benefits
The platform, developed by Thales, allows connectivity providers of any size to seize the IoT opportunity!
In addition to using the best protocols currently in place, it easily adapts to the latest industry standards.
As a cost-effective solution for extending local connectivity to fleets of devices as they are deployed, Thales Adaptive Connect offers many other benefits that we will let you discover in the white paper.
