Who benefits from the GSMA Embedded SIM?

Operators gain new business opportunities from a world of intelligently connected services and devices, reduce the logistical costs associated with handling traditional SIM cards and retain existing SIM security levels, all with minimum impact to their current network infrastructure, and minimum cost of integration and testing.

SIM Manufacturers add flexibility to their current products and open up new markets by providing the infrastructure and services that remotely provision SIMs. Adherence to a common industry standard ensures all returns on R&D investments are maximised.

Business Customers, whose product life cycles are often lengthy, enjoy the reassurance of knowing there is a common global architecture with no compromise on existing SIM capabilities. Inevitably they benefit from enhanced flexibility regarding their manufacturing, global constraints versus local connectivity contracts. Effective and efficient management of large scale volumes of M2M devices is entirely possible together with the knowledge that future expansion of connected services will not be prohibited by any third parties.

Finally, end users enjoy a seamless experience on a plethora of devices, knowing they are securely and intelligently connected to ubiquitous mobile networks. This remotely provisionable SIM is the vital enabler for the future growth of the machine to machine market.

Beecham Research has released a new independent study which explores the benefits of the GSMA SIM Specification on the Mobile Enabled M2M Industry. It estimating that the immediate industry-wide adoption and deployment of the GSMA Embedded SIM Specification will deliver 34 per cent higher market growth by 2020.
