Consumer RSP architecture,
Here's a quick overview of its key components.
eUICC - This is a secure element that contains one or more profiles. Each profile enables the eUICC to function in the same way as a traditional removable SIM.
Subscription Management Data Preparation Plus, or SM-DP+ for short, is responsible for the profile creation, download, remote management and the protection of the operator’s credentials.
Local Profile Assistant or LPA - is a set of functions in the device responsible for providing the capability to download encrypted profiles to the eUICC. It also presents the local management interface to the user so they can manage the status of profiles on the eUICC.
The discovery service provides a means to notify the LPA when profile data is available for download to the eUICC. The device polls the SM-DS for notifications when required.

So why eSIM?
The world is changing, and technology is changing with it. Mobile loT is growing at an exponential rate, with the global machine-to-machine sector alone expected to be worth 93 billion dollars by 2022.
This growth is being driven by new technologies such as 5G and eSIM. Together, these technologies will make devices smarter, more efficient, more effective and significantly more valuable than ever before.
Cutting edge technologies, such as 5G, will enable data to be transmitted at far higher speeds and at far greater volumes.
Another critical emerging technology is the embedded SIM or eSIM. The eSIM simplifies mobile connectivity and brings it to a far wider range of devices such as cars, smart energy, and health monitoring.
eSIM technology is revolutionary in that it is now embedded into next-generation devices. With no need to open up a device and swap out plastic SIM cards, it virtualises the physical SIM and makes switching mobile network operators a great deal easier.
So how does eSIM technology help device manufacturers and service providers?
eSIMs offer multiple speed, cost and flexibility benefits that traditional SIMs can’t match. They are also easier to produce, easier to manage and enhance device functionality and create the potential for a host of new value-added services.
Here’s the techy bit:
• It is up to 98% smaller - saving critical space within the device.
• It’s considerably lighter weighing nearly 20 times less
• It has a lifespan ten times greater allowing up to 1 million rewrites of its memory
• It’s far more durable, withstanding extreme temperatures from as low as minus 40 to over 100 Degrees Celsius
• It’s also a great deal stronger with high shock resistance allowing it to perform in the most demanding operational conditions.
• As it’s embedded within the device, it enables a fully waterproof product
• And offers greater tamper-resistance
Most impressively, the eSIM software is designed to simplify the connectivity process, giving OEMs and service providers maximum control, allowing devices to connect to any mobile network operator in the world. With universal out-of-the-box global connectivity, manufacturers and providers no longer need to organise specific network connectivity agreements prior to market launch. This can save a huge amount of time and cost in product distribution and stock management with a one-size-fits-all solution. This individual unit can be sold anywhere in the world.
Mobile IoT creates a huge opportunity …which is where we come in.

M2M remote SIM provisioning standard
Here is a quick introduction to the M2M Remote SIM Provisioning Architecture and its key components:
eUICC. Starting with the eSIM or more specifically its software the eUICC - This is a secure element that contains one or more network profiles. Each profile enables the eUICC to function in the same way as a traditional removable SIM and connect to a mobile network.
Mobile Network. The eUICC contains profiles from Mobile Network Operators which allow the SIM to connect to their cellular networks.
EUM. The eUICC is produced by an eUICC manufacturer or EUM who is responsible for the secure upload of the eUICC’s data to the SIM.
SM-DP. Subscription Management – Data Preparation is the activity in which network profiles are prepared, packaged and stored
SM-SR. Subscription Management – Secure Routing is the activity in which profiles are remotely managed on a device. Meaning they are added, enabled, disabled or deleted.
All these components need to be considered to effectively and securely manage eSIM devices over-the-air.
How do you ensure eSIM security?
By 2023, the eSIM market will be worth around ONE BILLION dollars
But the impact of a single data breach can run into millions.
So how do you ensure eSIM security?
The GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme sets out stringent security standards across the manufacturing and management of eSIM. Specifically:
and eSIM remote provisioning
These deliver three key benefits:
One. Increased security - adding reliability and lowering business risk
Two. Interoperability - ensuring universal and cost-effective compatibility across systems and devices
And three. Future-ready - meaning the solutions you build today work with the devices of tomorrow.
