Highlights of Mobile World Congress 2017 Seminar: eSIM – a New SIM for a New Generation of Connected Consumer Devices

Jean-Christophe Tisseuil, Head of SIM Technology, GSMA

The GSMA has now released the second version of its global specification that enables Remote SIM Provisioning in any consumer device. This enables the device to be provisioned with more than one operator profile, which will extend the specification to a wider range of devices beyond the single companion device enabled by the first release of the specification. Now, device manufacturers and operators will be able to offer consumers the ability to select the operator and the device of their choice, and then securely download that operator’s profile to their device. Below, you can catch up on the Mobile World Congress seminar by viewing presentations, videos and user experience demonstrations of RSP for consumer devices.
