15.35 – 16.00 The eSIM (R)evolution

The SIM card is a part of our life for many decades now and through the time it has drastically evolved from the pure Telecom applications, integrating new features from outside of this industry – especially since the release of the embedded SIM technology. These features are now enabling non-Telecom applications to many other markets and industries – promoting the massive connectivity of devices.

These multi-application use cases have been discussed in the mobile industry since the invention of the SIMs, but only now we are seen their convergence. This can only be possible due to the massive implementation of eSIM into the OEM devices, a higher certified security level for the applications and new initiatives (such as the Google Strongbox). Let’s discuss how we can bring to life and utilize the eSIM new capabilities to offer improved, trusted and future-proof applications.
