eSIM for M2M was initially embraced by the automotive sector who were eager to adopt this new technology because it provides exciting, new ways to increase flexibility and after-sale support. For example, it can be used to improve car-sharing, parking, or charging assistance. It can even extend vehicle longevity or upgrade vehicle functions through over-the-air software updates enabled by remotely provisioned eSIMs and iSIMs. Likewise, autonomous vehicles will need to communicate with each other and with the highway infrastructure. eSIMs or iSIMs will provide the flexibility to select the right network for the right location and country.
eSIM brings plenty of opportunities in the consumer market: the change from a mobile-per-person model to an all-things-connected model will be a game-changer for the industry
