Why use eSIM remote provisioning?
The eSIM’s software, the eUICC, provides the ability to provision a device connectivity after the manufacturing process e.g. on first use, which simplifies stock management to a single unit (SKU) which can be used anywhere in the world. In addition, connectivity configurations (profiles) can be updated remotely after the device has been issued, which removes the need for physical access required to manage traditional SIMs. The eUICC enables secure remote SIM provisioning of mobile network operator profiles and the subsequent management of the device’s lifecycle. All of this can save a significant amount of time and cost in product distribution and stock management.
Should I host in the cloud or onsite?
When considering whether to host your remote SIM provisioning platform yourself or use a trusted partner, one important aspect to consider is the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme for Subscription Management. This ensures that the provider adheres to its security standards and that the platform is interoperable with a wider network of operators and platform providers.
An onsite implementation requires heavy investment upfront and the necessary resources to manage the platform. You should also be aware that an onsite implementation including certification can take between 6 to 12 months. Using a specialist hosted platform provider with hosting and managed services is the most opex-friendly, cost-efficient and quickest option to go live.
