In an updated brochure, available to download now, learn about Kigen’s embedded SIM (eSIM) and integrated SIM (iSIM) solutions. Our Kigen SIM solutions drive cellular IoT enabled projects to market faster and more securely. Designed to enable global, scalable, secure cellular IoT connectivity, these comprise of the following:
With our solutions, our partners can realize cellular IoT potential and look to adopt integrated SIM functionality support across IoT platforms and devices.
Customers from across the IoT market sectors need to consolidate their requirements into delivery strategies. However many will not be able to achieve this in isolation and will require expert guidance and even delivery support. This may include helping them overcome challenges like cost optimization, technical implementation, and deployment barriers as they adapt to IoT. Here’s how Kigen solutions can help.
Enterprises that switch to eSIM benefit from a soldered component embedded within the device. They can therefore manage their IoT devices’ SIMs remotely, on a global scale and without worry, using an eSIM solution. Through the effective remote management of the SIM profiles, the cellular network use for their IoT devices can be optimised. Thus by selecting the best connectivity subscription employed, they can improve internal efficiencies and reduce costs.
The combination of reduced costs and support from a Kigen SIM solution, gives enterprises more flexibility to innovate and differentiate themselves in the IoT ecosystem. Read how in Building cellular connectivity into your next IoT design.
Chipset makers can introduce iSIM to enhance their products for the cellular market. Chiefly by consolidating functions onto a single chip, iSIM technology brings optimization to devices. This makes it easier for those looking to incorporate these consolidated features. Additionally it will set their product line apart from the competition in an increasingly crowded IoT space.
With Kigen SIM solutions, chipset makers can leverage this optimization opportunity to add critical features like remote SIM provisioning (RSP) for customers. This can for instance help reduce complexity, power consumption and manufacturing time for device makers. Moreover, it also fulfils any requirement for the inclusion of scalable, reliable and secure connectivity. Learn more in our white paper Unlocking the cellular IoT potential for chipset makers.
Module makers and OEMs
Module makers and OEMs can use an eSIM solution to offer built-in cellular capabilities within their products. As a result, out of the box cellular service can be natively available to a device owner. It also enables the ongoing remote management of cellular network SIM profiles. eSIM or iSIM gives them the capability to not only reduce the number of components but also the integration effort. Additionally it allows them to more easily realize products that is suited for global distribution.
Streamlining modules and devices for a truly diverse range of cellular IoT scenarios, without adding extra cost, is key. It additionally ensures choice of deployment options and ecosystem architectures that can flex as the usage evolves.

MNOs and MVNOs
MNOs and MNVOs who adopt a clear strategy for supporting eSIM or iSIM enabled devices will ensure these remain in focus in all aspects of their business. This ensures they continue to appraise their usage patterns and understand how best to address the remote profile management needs of these within each segment of their customer base. With this in mind, they are able to map the associated customer journeys. In turn this can be neatly translated and incorporated into a scaleable SIM profile generation and remote management solutions. It is also key that this operates seamlessly alongside their existing pluggable SIM supply chain and distribution regimes.
MNOs and MVNO’s can increase their net adds by capitalizing on every new certified eSIM or iSIM device coming onto the market. Designing and integrating a full suite of remote SIM provisioning services and APIs into their operations will ensure this. Both systems and processes throughout their delivery stack should be considered in scope. These will include their business system, go to market approach and customer support environments. This makes it easier for their customers to deploy and connect devices securely.
Robust GSMA SIM accreditation and certification gives MNOs and MNVOs confidence in the eSIM and iSIM remote profile management end to end ecosystem. This standardized certification ecosystem consequently ensures, through testing and assessment, functional compliance and security evaluation. As a result, this brings trust, meaning that RSP interoperability and network security are upheld. Download The guide to GSMA eSIM certification to learn more.
IoT service providers
IoT service providers can use a SIM solution to remotely provision a device to any suitable network across the globe. This gives them greater flexibility to make changes when needed in order to ensure service continuity or deliver cost reductions.
The ability to benefit from newer emerging cellular IoT technologies, such as LTE-M, NB-IoT and 5G, through remote updates avoids the need to prematurely physically update or replace infrastructure or deployed devices. Service providers can instead focus on customer service and innovation. Read How remote SIM provisioning works to learn more.
