Traditional eSIM management
The hidden risk of single-vendor procurement
Despite a pandemic, in 2020, over 430 million eSIM-based devices were shipped globally. By 2025, the number is expected to grow two-fold.
“Customer and operator demand for eSIM has never been higher, and its growth is accelerating. Soon eSIM will be part of the mobile industry’s day-to-day business, thanks to digitalization strategies, along with the need to facilitate the use of IoT devices.”

To take advantage of the eSIM opportunity as soon as possible, many MNOs invested in one-vendor systems because no better alternatives were available to them at the time.
Unfortunately, the same systems are now impeding their ability to integrate with MNO partners that specialize in particular verticals or offer specialized solutions because that would require costly duplication of platforms to provide multi-tenant capabilities.
By depending entirely on a single system, MNOs also don’t have any redundancy in place, so anything from a software glitch to a connectivity problem can prevent subscribers from being able to download their eSIM profiles—a fatal flaw in a mission-critical process.
Embracing an open eSIM ecosystem
The good news is that MNOs can finally implement a multi-vendor procurement strategy even for eSIM management because an open ecosystem alternative is now available.
Called Multi-tenant eSIM Hub, or MeSH for short, this industry-first alternative is an overlay system for a telco’s eSIM management platform which is available as a cloud-based solution with regional hosting options in France, USA and Dubai representing the next evolutionary step in how eSIM technology is managed.
MeSH: open system
MeSH delivers a single unifying solution to manage all systems and tenants, offering a single interface with consolidated billing and reporting as well as real-time monitoring.
This modern eSIM platform can support multiple tenants, platforms, sites, and sales channels to meet the needs of telcos who want to use a multi-vendor approach to achieve greater competitiveness and redundancy, groups with multiple entities, telcos with enterprise clients and resellers, and others.
As one of the top GSMA-certified providers of eSIM management solutions according to Counterpoint Research, Workz can ensure full security of each tenant’s data using server partitioning in adherence with GSMA security protocols.
